Bottle pour. Not as robust as the HF Everett, but still an exceptional brew. A good smoke aroma to it. The flavors consist of slight tobacco and subtle chocolate and coffee.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Silky smooth porter, lots of chocolate, roasted malts, tinged with blueberry. Quite sweet but not overly so. A sipper.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Toasty malty coffee aroma. Smooth, creamy roasted malt flavor. Light on the palate. Slightest bitterness on the front and ends with roasted nutty aftertaste. Very easy to drink. I really like it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
pours dark mahogany with a thin light but creamy tan head. aroma is mostly rusted malt and bitter chocolate with some floral hop undertones. taste is similar, with the dark bitter chocolate coming through the most. nice mouthfeel with some lingering bitterness, but mostly from the roasted make and chocolate, not the hops. good beer.
