Very dark pour with a coffee aroma and taste right off the bat. There is also chocolate present. Very robust with a touch of smoke and considerably malty. It goes with lots of foods you may not consider a porter suited for. All around good performer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottled 3.5 months ago, purchased at Johnís Grocery ($1.79) and poured into a pint glass at home. Black appearance with a lingering tan head and thick lacing. Aroma of roast, dark malts, chocolate, coffee and caramel. Similar flavor, adding a mild earthy bitterness. Medium body, slick and smooth with average carbonation, a little dry. Rich and robust, but still pretty easy to drink.

Good smells upon opening the bottle. Very full yet clean mouthfeel with coffee notes on the finish. Iím not a coffee drinker so I like when porters are not overwhelmingly coffee flavored. This one is nicely balanced. Very drinkable.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours an opaque blackish brown with a small tan head. Nose is dark roasted malt with a hint of chocolate. Nice and creamy on the palate with average viscosity. Taste is of dark roasted malts, some coffee and chocolate. Very light on the hops flavor resulting in a very smooth flavor. Pairs well with a corned beef sandwich on rye.

Itís like a delicious barbeque in my mouth. Never really liked porters much but hadnít tried one in a while. Unfortunately, I started with Bells and now my expectations are way too high. Hickory goodness.
