I had this one after I just landed in New Orleans. It’s a very mild porter and I would call it more of a light ale with some roasted malts. Not too roasted, just a bit more malty.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Dark roasted bouquet with a hint of malt. Earthy with a woody hint. Very dark appearance............cannot see my fingers through the other side of the pint, which is proper. A very dark brown with a frothy head. Heavy, almost caramel, flavor. For a dark beer, nothing even close to being bitter. Full bodied but with a surprisingly mild fizz. This is very close to being the finest beer I have ever had.

Aroma is dark/roasted malts and coffee. The flavor is similar to the aroma with an acidic/slightly tart finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer pours a dark brown color with amber around the edges, and a medium foamy off-white head that recedes steadily to a wispy film. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast malt, coffee and slight hops. Light-bodied with a roasty malt and coffee character, and mild hops in the background. The finish is sweet with a short mild coffee aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of cocoa and roast. Tastes like roasted malt with some coffee and dark chocolate. Thinnish medium bodied with average carbonation. Not bad, a little thin for a porter, but my impression is that it doesn’t claim to be one.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice label. Lightly sweet, humid pour. A toasty, acidic, dark concoction. Surprisingly lite bodied. A porter meets...something. A black IPA joined with a lemon saison? this wouldn’t be for everyone, but I liked the citrusy acidity.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle. Burgundy black body, big foamy beige head. Kind of has a slight infected twang. The flavors are OK, but there something odd an sugary about the body. Pretty weak offering. Brown chocolate, caramel.
