3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark brown with a nice, tight, tan head. Lightly roasted malts, sweet molasses, light dark fruits- enticing aroma. Medium bodied with very light carbonation. Flavor is of roasted malts, a touch of sweetness, chocolate, wafer thin dark fruits, and bittersweet cocoa in the finish. The roasted malts linger on your taste-buds. Highly enjoyable porter that is WAY to easy to drink.

Very dark brown color. Huge chocolate malt nose. Nice chocoately malty mouth, some dark fruit. Dry finish, with a creeping slap in the face lesson on chocolate malt. This beer should be relabelled chocolate malt chocolate malt.
