3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours pitch black with a finger of mocha, bubbly head and a decent amount of lacing. There is a TON of sediment in this beer. Nose is very chocolatey with hints of vanilla and strong roasted malt. A unique anise note is hidden behind the roast. Mouth is very chocolatey with anise coming through again. A perfect roastiness is present. medium body with a very smooth finish.

Uploading old ratings that were missing comments. Innocuous porter with just enough roastiness to conform to the style. Not terrible but I wouldn't seek it out again.

Pours dark brown with a slight tan head. Aroma is heavy on nuts, caramel, and sweet malt. Also a bit of chocolate. A very smooth body with subtle bitter notes and a bit of a sweetness. Finishes very smooth.

Dark brown, coffee and roasted malt aroma. Strong coffee, roasted, almost smokey flavor. More flavor than body, and finishes quickly.

Catching up on old ratting. On tap and in the bottle. The coffee flavors that come through always continue to surprise me. More roast than anything, but very good.

Easy drinking porter. Chocolate, roasted malt, caramel . Medium bodied, and lighter on the palette than you’d expect. Nice to have a "winter" beer that goes down easy. Another winner from Ale Asylum.
