3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a very hazy, dark brown with a half finger of tan head that does not dissipate. A lot of sediment, so I guess you can take this review for what it’s worth. Had aromas of roasted malts, vanilla, toffee, and molasses. Real sweet all the way down. Medium bodied beer, slick and sticky mouthfeel. Strong toffee aftertaste lingers for a while. Decent beer, I am going to look out a fresher version in the future.

Bottle, thanks Immanuel! Sweet chocolate malt aroma with notes of roasted malt. Pours dark brown with with a thin light brown head and a touch of lacing. Starts with roasted malt flavor with a nice medium body. Finishes smooth with the chocolate malt coating the palate at the end. Very good porter.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at the brewpub. Pours nearly black with a medium tan head that recedes gradually to a film. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast malt, chocolate and coffee. Light-bodied with flavors of roasted coffee, chocolate malt and mild piney hops. The finish is roasty with a coffee and malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Black body with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, coffee and vanilla. The flavor is lightly to moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Thin to medium body, watery texture, moderate to lively carbonation. Chocolate, roast and toffee taste. The body could be heftier, but an enjoyable porter nonetheless.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thin for a porter but also very tasty. Perhaps this is a summer porter. It lacks the boozy, stickiness of a classic porter but is strong on bitter chocolates and roasted malt. I will definitely get more.

Pitch black with a khaki colored thin head. Aroma of roasted barley, dark chocolate, cocoa sweetness and coffee. Flavors of chocolate, roasted barley, coffee and some mild but noticeable hoppiness. Very roasty aftertaste. Light body with some moderate carbonation. Quite tasty and easy to drink.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours black like every other newage Porter. The aroma is not clean, but not English esters either, maybe a bit of a vanilla character. The taste is very roasty and I am getting some black licorice which I do not care for. Not as bitter as a lot of the competition. Pretty good, but there are a lot of better Porters out there.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from madbeerbaron. Pours deep brown with caramel border. Aroma is faint coffee(espresso?), maybe some cocoa, and bread. Taste is rich malt, some light coffee notes. Not a deep flavor but nice and smooth.
