3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not a bad beer from the brewery. One of their better ones in my opinion. Pours fairly dark, but not black with a light tan head. Nose is roasted and chocolatey with alcohol presence as it opens up. Flavor is sweet caramel and roasted with some light darker fruit notes, almost fig like, but it works well. Not bad overall

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draught. Pours an almost black color with a moderate tan head on there. Nose is very coffee laden and roasty with only a hint of some cocoa coming through. Taste is a bit sweet, though some nice roasty bitterness comes through. The chocolate is very present, but doesn’t overpower. Nice brew.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from South Bay Liquor: Created a monstrous sizing of foam head while a dark brown rested below. Aroma is bold with whole grains and bread like scents but does allow room for a bit of roasted malts and vanilla bean. The drink is strange and has an unbalanced taste of roast malt and hops and doesn’t exactly come off as a porter style. Aftertaste finishes with a roasted malt profile and a bit of table sugar.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Near black. Fair fizzy beige head, partly lasting. Aroma is a beautiful chocolatey coffee roasty with lovely vanilla. Hershey syrup. Lighter Medium body. Soft. Flavor is loaded with really smooth coffee, a notable amount of vanilla, rich chocolate. Alcohol pretty well hidden. Not overly complex, this beer really comes together, with the chocolate, coffee, and vanilla joining harmoniously. I like it!

Pours a dark ruby red with a nice caramel head. Aroma is full of dark fruit and chocolate. Taste is full of chocolate, dark chocolate and figs. Reminds me of Nogne Imperial Stout.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a big foamy head that fades fast and leaves some lacing. Aromas are tobacco, dark chocolate, vanilla and toasted dark bread. Tastes like unsweetened dark chocolate, vanilla, and burnt toast. Medium body. A bit over carbonated. Decent porter.

Fairly solid but a little weird. Had a wine-like sourness. Other than that, very strong vanilla and chocolate flavors make this is decent porter.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sweet vanilla and roast nose. Taste has a large cola component, but still dominated by the sweet vanilla, some caramel, cocoa, sweet and dark chocolate round out the flavor profile. Just eh for me, but the bottle was lacking carbonation.
