Bottle. Pours clear black with a medium, frothy off-white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is dates, plum, cookie and chocolate malt with earthy hops. Flavor is malt dominant with lightly tart dark fruity esters with light hops and bitterness and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

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.

Poured a dark brown color from the bottle with aromas of roast, light coffee, light dark fruit and some earth. Flavors matched the aromas the best beer out of the group I got, thanks to my Mom who bought me the mixed pack.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours clear black with a medium frothy off-white head that quickly left with no lacing. Aroma is dates, plum, and chocolate malt with earthy hops and lots of coffee. Flavor is coffee dominant with lightly tart dark malt with light hops and bitterness and a dry finish. This coffee seemed odd. Medium body and carbonation.
