3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle to pint glass. Pours nearly black with a few amber edges, tan head which laces nicely. I get chocolate and some bready malt, maybe a little dark fruit, a fig. Taste is very balanced, sweet molasses,bread, a little coffee and chocolate, but blended well. Has a very slight dry bitter finish that complements it quite nicely. Silky mouthfeel. A very nice beer from Blackstone.

Bottle from Erica and Chris. Dark brown body that some light comes thru with a frothy beige head. Pleasant aroma of roasted malts, caramel and floral hops. The flavor is lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body with good carbonation. A pleasant roasted coffee bitterness in the aftertaste along with some lingering caramel notes.

Bottle at Bob’s Steakhouse in Nashville. Served very cold. Dark brown with virtually no head. Aroma is nutty, ash and coffee with bitter chocolate notes. Very sweet taste, very little hop character. Slick mouthfeel. Decent porter.

Draft at brewery. The pour is a nice darker brown. The aroma is very interesting. Sweet and malty nose blend well. The taste is more nut brown than porter to me. Smooth and nutty.
