Slight roasty notes and very drinkable. I’d like to try this one on cask with less carbonation .Goes well with their food!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy dark cherry amber with a long lasting head/head cover, wisps of lace. Taste is a chewy caramel malt with a hint of toast. Taste grows through the palate, becoming slightly chalky on the roof of the mouth before adding a light hop bittering to finish. Overall, a solid traditional porter. Recommended.

Dark brown with red tint and light tan head. Aroma is smoky roast coffee. Taste is roast malt, a little sweet and hoppier than most. Enjoyable.

Pint glass of draft. Dark brown to almost black. I thought very hoppy for a porter and reminded me of a black IPA. The more I drank of it the better I liked it. Lots of chocolate and vanilla flavor to offset the hops . Enjoyed it thoroughly.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured deep deep brown. Like that of some watered down coffee. Tan frothy head that does a nice job of hanging around. Has a very rich complex nose of sweet breads, toast, ripe fruits, raisins, caramels. Flavor is moderately sweet and rich bread flavors, toast, caramels, chocolate, coffee. Full body, medium sweet finish, rich oily texture for the strength of this beer. Very enjoyable.

12oz bottle. Dark amber brown hazy color with only some lace on the glass. A complicated aroma of caramel, nuts, and toffee. Flavors are also well-blended and easy to drink. True to the style and delicious.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Poured medium-deep brown with a short, easily-resuscitated, yellowy-beige head. The aroma picked up sweet, toasted biscuit, chocolate, and nutty notes with accents of vanilla and a little honey.. very sweet overall, but it worked. The flavor found sweet black malts, chocolate, and vanilla at the core, with vanilla bean and cocoa through the finish.. dry, roasty malts with a touch of related tartness and full carbonation around.. finished a tad tart, with a lot of very sweet, tasty malts. Medium-bodied with a lot of carbonation on the palate.. very sweet, but it had a decent amount of contrasting stuff to keep it balanced.. overall a very solid brew.

Bottle. Very, dark brown. Not hazy, but so dark can’t see through it. Very slight head. Some lace. Aroma is burnt toast but weak. Taste, also weak but some burnt coffee notes and not actually too bad.
