3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draft at the brewery. The pour was dark brown with some off-white head, The aroma was nutty chocolate. The flavor was nuts, chocolate, molasses, faint astringency but not super distracting. Actually, a lighter porter that was fairly drinkable, mouthfeel moderate to light for the style, subtle level of carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a clear dark brown with some red highlights. There was a medium tall creamy mocha head that reduced to about 1/2 inch leaving only very light lacing. The aroma was mild with scents of chocolate and some sweet roasted malt. The beer had a slightly silky texture initially and a mild chocolate flavor. The flavor became more coffee like with a coffee like bitterness. The bitterness becomes more mild and fades into a slightly dry finish. A pretty good porter

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A pretty nice porter. Pours a dark brown with a thin head. The aroma is a lot of malt, bread, caramel, a touch of vanilla. The flavor is malty sweet with the caramel and bread. It is a little thin but has a nice after taste that lingers.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours mahogany with a small tan head that recedes immediately to a thin collar and leaves only bits of clingy lacing.
Aroma is nice and roasty with plenty of nuts as well. There is light caramel malts and some coffee.
The taste is nutty with coffee and toasted caramel malts underneath. Some light bakers chocolate notes and a bitter roasty finish.
Mouthfeel is light and maybe a little watery. Itís got good carbonation and is definitely roasty but lacks the body I was hoping for.
This is a decent porter but itís definitely on the lighter side of things. Drinkable but not all that complex.

Recommended purchase to me @ Perfect Pour in Columbia, MD when I was looking for a good porter with not too much alcohol. It was a pleasant surprise. Pours a dark color. More on the smokey side than the sweet side, but very well balanced.

12oz bottle. Rating #349. Real dark red pour with a tan head. Light milk chocolate aroma and just the smallest hint of roast. Dry and a little smoky with a roasted malt thing happening in the finish. Not too bad. (1606)

On draft @ Wood Grill Kitchen Kittery, ME. Pours a deep brown with a small tan head. Aroma of roastiness with coffee. After letting my pint sit for about 10 minutes. I got, weak flavors of chocolate, coffee, and roasted malt. Light bodied, for a porter, lightly carbonated. Not bad or real good. Very middle of the road.

355ml bottle. Nose of deep roasted malt and a hint of licorice and a mineral quality I canít quite put a finger on. The taste is more of the same, but itís great.
