3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours black with red mahogany highlights and a two finger tan head that lasts. A definite dry hopped porter, aromas of chocolate malt, roasted malt, spicy and pine hops, caramel, and a touch of booze. Again, undoubtedly dry hopped with flavors of chocolate, torched wood, caramel, coffee beans, and bitter pine hops. Slightly astringent from the hops and coffee presence, but also from the heavy roasted notes left over on the tongue. Great lacing is left all down my pint glass. Medium-light bodied with good carbonation. Different, yet extremely good and sessionable.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an inky black with a thin, tan head that stays. Surprisingly floral aroma for the style - not the expected, roasted nose. More effervescent than the usual porter, with a hopper palette as well. Blurring the line a bit between this style and a black IPA. Interesting.

Interesting. Poured a dark porter brown with a one finger head. Medium bodied with a creamy texture. Taste is of caramel malts, toast and hops. Caramel hop aroma with a hint of grassy hops. An excellent, well balanced beer.

First had this in Denver and really liked it, finally found it here. Pours a nearly black with a head that dissipates quickly, nice lacing. Nose is chocolate and some hops. Medium body, I really like this beer I think its a nice blend of styles.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
pours brown with a 2 finger head. The aroma is caramel and malts with a hoppy tinge. There is a floral background and almost smells like a chocolate orange. The flavor has hoppy undertones and mixed in perfect., Never had a dry hopped porter other than this, and this is a great brew.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Aroma is grass, cough drop, roasty. Dark brown color, cloudy, brown foam. Medium sweetness, medium bitterness. Light body, thin dryish feel, average carbonation, astringent taste. This one was a disappointment, looking forward to something like Robust Porter but getting more of a Black ipa, To many flavors leaving a bad end product!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark brown almost black color topped with a tan tinged head. Aroma is roasty with some hops shining through. Taste is standard for a porter. Nice roastiness followed by a slight hop bite. Very nicely balanced, drinkable brew.
