4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Good smells upon opening the bottle. Very full yet clean mouthfeel with coffee notes on the finish. I’m not a coffee drinker so I like when porters are not overwhelmingly coffee flavored. This one is nicely balanced. Very drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
"Packaged April 3, 2014"...two years old now. 12 ounce bottle purchased at Bine & Vine ($2.19). POURS a very dark brown (basically black) with a good finger and a half of tan foam. AROMA of quality roasted malts, mild coffee, leather, with a bit of nutty vanilla. FLAVOR of earthy dark malts, some dark chocolate, light black coffee, and dark caramel. A bit of lingering roastiness into the finish. Somehow this is overly light in body. Not bad but was hoping for more heft and character. (1493, 1021)
