4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma is chocolate, mocha, vanilla and rich sweet malts. Taste is a full bodied, lightly smoked malt body. Quite roasty with a nice sweetness with honey and caramel. Transitions into a light bitterness that finishes smoothly. The pumpernickel shows up nicely at the end is not overpowering. Appearance is a black body with a medium brown head that retains well.

Smoith porter with coffee mites in the aroma and body. Hard to say about bitterness due to previous beers but seems like a smooth porter. Medium body easy to drink.

Pours with an incredibly thick head. You could spoon it. Super soft and creamy on the palette. Hints of malt and burnt charcoal with a looong malty finish.

Bottle, pours murky brown, clear with tan stable head, nice lacing. In aroma roasted, bready, pumpernickel and liquor notes. Taste is mix of roastiness, sweetness, light bitterness, pumpernickel and delicate alcohol notes. Well balanced. Bit oily feel, full body, soft carbonation. Really good beer,

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This pumpernickel porter pours with a heady froth, highly effervescent once freed from the bottle. The aroma unfortunately gives of tinges of ethanol, and the final head is weak once it subsides. At this point the porter seemed like it would be a disappointment, but earned favour rapidly on first taste. Deeply concentrated fruit acids and a rich chocolate infuse the taste, drawing you into a fulfilling drop. If the aroma and pour equalled the flavour, this beer would be a marvel.
