4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Love this f***ing beer. One of my favorites.
-Pours a dark black, rose and burgundy in the light, tan to white creamy head dissipates quickly and leaves a bit of lacing. Aromas of raisin, date, paperclips, farmhouse, light chocolate.
Licorice, grain, peanut, pistachio shell, metal, vine, and sexy sex on the tongue. Slightly watery mouthfeel, medium body, tingly in the cheeks, bold but subtle palette. Finish is half dry half wet, long remnant of nut and earthy grain, little beef. Rather warming, a solid porter. This is what I want when I want a porter.

Bottle @ European Taste. Dark brown with tan had that dissipated and light lacing. Smells sweet and chocolatey with some liqeuer, molasses, and coffee. And a little damp earthy and vegetal. Sweet but not cloying. Fairly dry/clean finish.

Bottle at movie Gone Girl. Not great- licorice and sweet notes overpowering. Tons of toasted malt on the nose and cola. Medium mouthfeel. More of a winter beer. Sweetness and lack of balance kind of ruined it for me. Only mildly carbonated. Right look and mouthfeel- wrong taste.

A porter that will put hair on your chest. Slightly but not very boozy. Strong porter notes. Thinner than a stout; well labeled.

Pours black with a tan head. Aroma is roast, cola and licorice. Taste is sweeter then expected with some mild acidic tartness. Medium bodied with the alcohol well hidden, thin texture and soft carbonation.
