3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Growler. Pours a rich, warm coffee brown with an effervescent tan head. Aroma starts with a core of roast malt and hangs coffee, semi-sweet chocolate, caramel, vanilla, and subtle licorice notes to the sonata of scents. Lip-smacking flavor trots roast malt, coffee, toasty, nutty, vanilla, and shy licorice and woody tones across the palate. Texture is smooth and fairly thick, and fizz is firm if not lasting. Climb this peak of Dairug-beer XV!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Une bouteille bue dans mon camp de chasse. Ce porter frise le noir. Son col brun est assez solide. Les arômes sont fidèles aux fèves de cacao et à l’authentique vanille. Les saveurs bien chocolatées et caramélisées sont fabriquées avec une vanille jouxtée à des grains rôtis amers. Le corps est rond. La texture est crémeuse. Le liquide est gazéifié selon le style. La finale est rôtie et vanillée, sans sucre et pratiquement sans alcool.

I thought this was very good. I only had a small taste, definitely need to go back for more. From a bottle at an SF beer festival.

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!

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.
