3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle in a pint glass. Appearance is a ruby-tinted dark brown color with a thin mocha head. Aroma is chocolate, some roasted malts, and a bit of a sweet smoky scent. It’s a nice complex aroma. The taste is a bit richer and smokier than the aroma, but it’s similar to the aroma. There is a little bit of a mesquite flavor to the smokiness. A bit different from other porters I’ve tried, but not bad.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Black pour with red hue, small amount of beige head. Smokey/peaty/leathery scent. Flavor follows the nose but it’s not too heavy, campfire-like. Low carbonation with a clean finish. Nice smoked porter.

Dark brown color, no head. Has a smokey, burnt caramel and beef jerky smell. The smokey caramel flavor comes out nicely, along with some malts in the background. Pretty good porter.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a pitch black with a nice khaki head. Just beautiful. Amoras of malt and smoke. Taste is robust chocolate, dark malt and smoke. Palate is full bodied. Very thick mouthfeel. Overall a must try porter. Great dark malt presence and great smoke latency. Well done.
