3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brown colored body with a bubbly and light brown/grey head. Aroma is a combination of cocoa, coffee, smoke and a hint of chicory. Chocolate is predominant in taste but foral hops and smoke accents drive through your mouth. The oily texture is a joy for your tongue. Great beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Brown, clear color, head explodes in the glass, Hiroshima-style, filling it completely, top to bottom with a tan, lasting foam.
Intense, yeasty nose.
Medium body, moderate flavor, assertive mouthfeel, low heat but not flat, good balance, lingering palate.
Bitter, mildly sweet background, high but not excessive acidity.
Roast flavors, yeasty,
Quite pleasant, never exiting but it grows on you.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
A dark crimson body with a tan head that had good retention. Aroma had nice roasted malts and a bit of chocolate. Some mild toasted cereal malts. Flavor was nice. A well balanced blend of roasted malts and chocolate. There was a sense of molasses in the finish. Beer seemed overly carbonated for the style. Not a great porter but not terrible either.

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2015 First taste of beer after lengthy hiatus, fresh draught poured dark with quickly dissipating foam. Roasty goodness for sure, with some slight alcohol and hop bitterness thrown in the mix.
