3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The beer is nearly black with a medium tan head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Sweet roasted malt aroma with coffee notes. Medium body with coffee, roasted malt and mild chocolate flavors. The finish is dry and roasty with a short coffee aftertaste. Above average for the most part.

Sasparilla colored, with a decent head. Sweet, molasses roast nose leading into a smooth, sweet cola body. Rather thin on the palate. A touch of black patent sticks at the back of the throat.

Tap @ the brewery... Poured dark, near black with a thin, light khaki head. Nose had toasted, cocoa malt and a hint of nuttiness. On par for the style. Ashy ad chalky, moderate to low roast, mild hop balance and dark malts and sweetness. Moderate body and carbonation. Nice drinking porter.

Dark ruby brown color, good creamy beige head, lace. Lots of chocolate in the toasted nose with hints of smoke. Medium-bodied. Sweetish front, some chocolate then finishing to more dry roasted aftertaste. Good shit.
