3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer is almost firing on all cylinders, except for a flat appearance, pouring out like an oil slick. Slick, slippery body, aroma carries some wine like essences, along with some molasses and soy sauce. Alcohol warmth right up front, woody, sweet taste. Medium sweet finish.

4 oz draft at Spacebar. Black with light tan head. Aromas of vanilla, dark fruit, dark chocolate, caramel. Tastes of chocolate, coffee, booze, dark fruit, a little cola. Medium body with a dry and syrupy finish. The booze kind of masks the other flavors and holds the beer back a bit for me.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
This is a very unique porter without the traditional sour grainy flavor and palate. It has a very pleasant appearance with a dark chocolate color. The taste is sweet with strong coffee, citrus and vanilla aroma. The palate is very crisp and creamy. A very unique porter that you should try if you happen to be in the DC area.
