2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
This draft brew from the brewery in Indianapolis poured a small head of mostly diminishing finely sized brown colored bubbles the left behind a good lace. The body was an opaque dark brown color. The aroma was mild with malt and molasses notes. The mouth feel was smooth and flat. The flavor was mild malty and brown beer like.

Black color with no head. Damn, this place just can not brew beer to have an aroma to save their lives! Bitter coffee taste. Very watery body.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Black with ruby colored edges and a small, poorly developed head of light tan. Typical porter smell, malt accented (with very little hop aroma), with hints of chocolate fudge, roast, espresso and coffee. While the aroma can almost be considered vibrant, the flavor is very gentle. Palate is soft and fizzy, almost chaulky. Light cocoa initially, which fades into a burnt fruit aspect. I don’t usually say this about Porters, but this could use more hop. Not enjoyable, maybe even a drainpour.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Dark cola color. An oat and malt taste. Sweet, but not in a grocery store candy bar way. Almost a cold leftover coffee aftertaste. Mostly bitter up front with nothing in the middle or end.

Had in Dallas @ Humperdinks as the Humperdinks brand .. . Medium dark brown, very light foam .. no lacing .. . low smell of tart burnt molasses .. . thin, and only lightly roasty .. . Disorder is right... . Then came the rocks -- jagged rocks, hitting me with their jags.

Very dark pour with a chocolate coffee aroma. Taste adds some caramel to the mix. It’s too much for me.
