This robust dark brew has been created using rich Columbian dark roast coffee to celebrate our 10th anniversary in royal fashion. The enticing regal aromas of toffee and licorice lead to the coronation of taste; a palate of malty richness exhibiting chocolate and coffee notes, balanced by the noble and novel Mt. Rainer hop, all topped with a rich creamy crown. This very special offering will warm your soul and lift your spirits. Oh yeah, it also packs a royal kick at 8% alcohol. There are only 1,000 cases available and very limited draft, so if you see it, grab it.

    Bottle. Poured a dark brown color with a medium light-brown head. Aroma consists of coffee, caramel, toffee, and chocolate. Mouthfeel is full and pleasant. Flavor is mostly dark chocolate with a coffee hint to it. Finish is vanilla and very sweet. An impressive porter. Thanks to Eaglefan538 for the bottle.

    Pour was a dark dark brown color with nice off colored head. Aroma was of coffee and cocoa. Floave was good coffee, and chocolate some bitterness either from the coffee or hop. Mouthfeel was outstanding smooth. Solid beer.

    This porter pours a medium brown color from a 12oz bottle. Small sized tan foamy head. Aroma is vanilla and chocolate. A medium bodied Baltic Porter. Malts are fruity and roasty, lots of chocolate and vanilla. Hops are earthy and floral. Nice porter. Lots of chocolate and vanilla flavors, not a lot of roasty malts and coffee. Very smooth tasting. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

    A really nice beer with everything you want in a porter, and a little more!! Aroma is fresh brewed coffee, vanilla, toffee and milk chocolate. Appearance was very dark, nearly black with deep red highlights and a nice tan head. Mouthfeel was incredibly smooth and silky. Flavor was fresh coffee, dark fruits, vanilla, tobacco with supringly mint-like finish. A very different beer, not your run-of-the-mill Baltic's but that's a good thing. And a great beer.

    Beer pours dark with red highlights. Strong aroma of coffee. Nice mixture of coffee, chocolate... an dark fruits...unique. A little lacking in bitterness, but quite scrumptious for a sweet treat.

    Poured a deep, dark brownish red color with a medium sized, tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of sweet chocolate, light smoke, toffee, and vanilla. More sweet chocolate in the taste, with light roasted malts, vanilla beans, and a bit of dried fruits. Alcohol was nearly undetectable.

    Deep dark brown color, light red hues around the edges and through the body in the right light, nice one finger initial head, off white to tan, thins quickliy but retains good thin coverage over the top surface. Aroma was licorice, coffee, raw bitter cocoa beans, very faint peat smoke. Flavor was coffee, chocolate, light tobacco, very nice touch of bittering hop zing and mint in the finish. More tilted to sweet than hoppy, yet hardly a too sweet beer. Mouthfeel was excellent, smooth, silky, velvety, even a touch dry, yet wonderful, nothing sticky or syrupy about it. I can't imagine that there is a better FF beer out there (I don't normally even buy FF anymore).
