Ok beer. Bad aftertaste. Aroma is ok but can’t carry the beer. I drank it room temperature but wonder if cold wouldn’t be better.

Bottle from BroIPA. Pours a nice deep brown a thick, creamy light tan head. Aroma is lightly roasted malt, hints of chocolate and coffee. Taste is chocolate, caramel, roast, sugar. Real clean, smooth, and easy drinking. Might have to start stocking up on this garbage.

Black with light brown foam head, bit lacing. Aroma is bit weak, some caramel, some liquorize. Taste bit to sweet for this color, sugary syrup, some bitterness. Short bitter aftertaste. (Wakefield 201010)

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Serving type: bottle
Apearance- Black with a quick disappearing tan head and sticky lacing.
Aroma- Very light and sweet with a slight hint of chocolate and fruits
T/P- Taste is very much like the smelt sweet with a hint of fruits and chocolate very pleasant moth feel carbonation is a bit high but not bad.
Overall- Very drinkable porter. I have not been disappointed in anything from this brewery. This is a porter that you could easily have more than one of in a night

Now that’s a Porter! You can immediately tell you’re drinking a Porter by the aroma. Rich dark brown, excellent lacing. Chocolate and caramel, resides on the roof of your mouth. Delicious.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Thick and dark with a TON of licorice. That, in fact, overwhelms the hints of chocolate and especially coffee which I generally prefer. Tried at a tasting at ABC beers in the Hague.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Serving: 500 ml. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a brown color with a light tan head. Metallic aroma at first followed by a weird nuttiness. Cheap cooking sherry and nuts in the flavor. Thin body with average carbonation and a long finish. Ugh. I thought about pouring this one out but powered through it. Not one I would return to though.
