3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 14, 2012 Cask... Poured a dark brown / red color with a medium sized tan head that left nice lacing. Weak roasty, chocolate cream aroma. Nice chocolate taste, some more roast and light smoke, cherries as well. Very thin mouthfeel. Not a bad porter.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at ABC. THis was very smoooth and enjoyable at the brewery, however, when I had it at another bar on tap it was somewhat different and had a metallic taste and wasnt nearly as smooth.(maybe bad tap lines) Overall it had a slight roasty aroma and flavor, but the caramel malts came through a little more. Although this beer is well attenuated and has a dry finish, it somehow retains a very nice body and mouthfeel. Very well done.

A little chocolate on the nose, but rather thin porter without much character. Not impressed.

(Draught) Foamy, beige head with an opaque body. Hardly any nose? Coffee malt. Boring...

Dark color. Black olive notes in flavor and aroma. I like black olives, so i thought this was ok, but could be better.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
A mild, English-style porter that has little in the way of aroma or roastiness. While I miss the aroma, there are times when I enjoy a mild porter with some malt and little bitterness. Pleasant.

Looks very promising with a thick dark body and a full rich white head. Not much in the way of aroma. The taste is roasted almonds w/ a bite. This beer promises a lot but just never delivers.
