3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ken’s Thirsty Thursday Throw Down - Soft coffee and cream nose with nice touches of mild roasty chocolate. Very well balanced flavors of mild coffee and chocoalte with hints of citric bitterness from start to finish. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, dry bittersweet finish. Good stuff that puts their IPA to shame (at least my six pack anyway) Thanks for sharing MJ...

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 26, 2012 Deep black with a medium brown colored head. Flavor is all roasty, toasted grains and smoke, a bit dry with some oak wood and a nice dose of chocolate and light coffee grounds… this is basically spot-on for robust porter. Smells amazing: creamy, roasted grains, coffee and dark chocolate, very heavy on the nose, very rich smelling. Rich and thick texture without being too viscous. Almost the perfect porter.
Oh yeah, a lot of 2007 bottles are infection or bad...

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours ebony with minimal tan head. Very deep black color here, almost on the level of Yaphet Kotto. The aroma is awesome roasty malt, with big dark chocolate, molasses, almond, Ovaltine. The taste is on the dry side, roasty malty, with some earty hops, molasses, almonds, and tobacco. Stays dry, stays complex and well balanced, and stays damned delicious!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle acquired in trade with The_Beer_God (thanks!). Poured a dark, dark brown with an averaged sized brown head. Aromas of roast, chocolate, light vanilla, tobacco, and coffee. Tastes of roast, chocolate, smoke, vanilla with a nice coffee bitter finish. I do have to admit, I was pleasantly surprised by this one. Very nice...

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2013 Bottled. Very dark brown with a firm but thin light brown head. Big roasty chocolate aroma. Equally robust flavors of dark chocolate, cherries, hint of oak and whiskey, complex and lucious. Very good beer.

Bottle thanks to immy: Dark brown to black with a small tan head. Aroma, roasty, chocolate, and coffee. Flavor, roasted coffee, some bittersweet chocolate, a bit on the thin side, but it’s pretty solid.
