3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.5L bottle. Pours black with a big, tan head. Aromas are fairly mild: bread, cereal grain and chocolat.e. Flavor is fairly sweet, with lots of chocolate and some roasted malt coming through. Finishes with some roasted malt bitterness, but sweetness remains. Medium-full body with a slick mouthfeel and mild carbonation. Overall, some nice malt character, but fairly unidimensional flavorwise.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice - a bit like an imperial stout-lite - some of the same burnt toffee, raisin, and warming alcohol characteristics. A little thin bodied though, and the head pretty much just vanished. Not a bad effort at all, I’d drink this again.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Chocolate sweet aroma, pours black with a bubbly off-white head. Very heavy in sweetness, balanced by a bit of hop bitterness. Very clean, leaves a touch of hops and burnt malt in the finish. Overall it is good, very nice with the strong sweetness powering through.

Decent coffee like aroma with a nice head that doesnít go anywhere, taste isnt bad but there is a metallic like note, and that helps this go down smooth, a tasty different porter.

In tallahassee you can buy this stuff extremly cheap so i never thought much of it. finally i decided to give it a try and found it a nice surprise. defiantly the best alcohol at its prive tier. anyway warm malt some roast produces a sweet thick taste on the tongue. some chocolate, does well to make this beer taste non alcoholic.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I tried at a Russian restaurant in Bogota, when itís poured in the glass whe can see a dark brown beer with a non persistent brown creamy foam head. The taste is quite good being evident the roasted malt flavor. The end is a little bit dry. As some porters canít be enjoyed if the weather starts to be hot so itís better if itís served cold.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
16.9 oz. bottle at Russia House is DC. Nothing too memorable about this one. Your average porter. Light malty flavor with no real development of flavors.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smells malty, sweet, toffee, bit of cocoa powder, molasses. Taste is sweet caramel, roasted, metallic, bit of fruitiness (reminds me of nectarines for some reason). Nice creamy mouthfeel with a lingering sweetness. I like that sweetness, but wish it had a bit more roastiness to it. Nice beer

Pours a jet black with an offwhite head. The aroma is malt and chocolate, a little yeasty. The flavor is roasty, with dark chocolate and enough bitterness. Their is kind of a sticky feeling that I didnít like too much, I wish it were a bit cleaner. Itís a decent porter, and not too expensive.
