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.

Soft carbonation, medium-light body, very smooth and drinkable. Enjoyable, sweet, with mild chocolate and roast. Only complaint is that the flavor could be stronger, bolder, otherwise quite pleasant.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Standard porter with good body and a better finish than some. Roasted flavors are right up front, but fade just in time to keep the finish from being too dry and bitter. Bit of smoke to it, as well.

Dark brown, pretty thin and transparent core. Finger thick fast fading head. Nice, but weak caramel and toasted malt nose. Upfront caramel sweetness with a slightly bitter coffee tinged finish. Decent porter. Inoffensive, good for the price, no complaints.
