2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
appearance: light for the style--clear cola brown, with two fingers of forthy, fizzy medium tan head with a rocky top, which slowly shrinks to a thick cap. aroma: molasses, chocolate, hint of black licorice, roasty coffee with a good dose of vanilla--smells pretty good. taste: taste is much lighter than the aroma; mineral water, watery coffee, ash, cocoa powder. finish: clean and dry, with a lingering minerality. notes: Palate is way too light at zingy for the style; flavor and mouthfeel did not match the aroma, which had created some anticipation. Overall a letdown. Bottle courtesy of George after a trip to Louisiana.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
