3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark deep brown pour with a thin light tan head. Smooth nose of cocoa and a touch of graham, gentle roast and black malt. Smooth and balanced flavor with some mild dark cocoa, breads toast, roast, gentle whispers of coffee, and finishes with a dry roastiness. Fairly standard run of the mill Porter. As it warms the chocolatiness comes through a bit more, but..eh.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Beer has a rich chocolate aroma with very low hop aroma and light esters. Beer poors black with a thin tan head. Flavor has a light sweetness, medium bitterness that is accentuated by the roasted malts. One the first drink, a light sour note is detected but fades quickly as the beer warms. Palate has a minor astringency, medium light body, creamy texture and average carbonation. Overall a nice porter, well done.
