Pours pitch black with a smooth light brown head. Aroma of roasty malts, hints of coffee, chocolate and roastiness. Taste is smooth, watery and slightly roasty with hints of coffee and chocolate. Finish is malty, robust and smooth with some hints of chocolate. Okay, quite balanced and smooth porter.

This was a bit underwhelming. Nice flavour - chocolate, coffee, some roasty malt - but somewhat light bodied. Still a good porter - and quite nicely balanced - but a bit lacklustre.

Pours a deep mahogany. Hints of earthy roasted coffee beans and chocolate. Rich roasted malts, coffee, hints of caramel and cocoa. A very nice porter.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a dark brown color with ruby glints in the light. A light tan-gray head forms to a size equal to the beer on which it sits. Spider web laces the insides of the glass. Ample coffee on the nose. Mouthfeel is full, but becomes more cottony as the astringency increases. Some sweetness, but not too sweet. In fact, it is bittered well enough at the finish to balance. Coffee, some ripe plum, and fine smokiness comprise the flavors of this well-engineered porter.
