3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sasparilla body, ok head. Nice moderate roasty nose with restrained black patent usage. Berry-tinged flavor, with blueberry a likely culprit, melding admirably well with the roasty notes. An interesting and enjoyable fruity porter.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours barely translucent ruby-sable with a nice light tan head. Toasty malt aroma has a yeasty overtone and a hint of molasses. Flavor is definitely roast malt, with less yeast and more molasses plus a touch of coffee. Mouthfeel has OK body and good fizz. Reach for this star.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Old rating. Bottle from Old Town. Pours a dark brown with ruby highlights and a small tan head. Chocolate milk, toasted grains and malt on the nose. Bittersweet on the palate. Cacao notes become more pronounced as it warms up to room temperature. A little on the thin-bodied side. Nice finish bitter finish though.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2014 Tap @ Bluegrass: Chestnut brown & ruby tinted body with a thin beige collar. Toasted & light roasted malts with a faint hint of acrid & heavily roasted coffee beans lingering in the background. A little bit of faint cocoa dust & some metallic earthiness on the palate, too. A touch fizzy & light bodied for a porter.

2/28/14. On tap at the brewpub. One of their least offensive entries. Almost black pour with a decent enough tan head. Milk chocolate and mild coffee aroma, touches of caramel and maltiness. Flavor is just fine as well, chocolate, coffee, caramel. Not bad.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Bluegrass Brewing Co., Louisville. The main page summary is an accurate description. A thoroughly acceptable, middle-of-the-road porter. Good with fish and chips (the beer batter here is very good).

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle, notched production date of April 2013, served in a snifter.
Pours clear but very dark btown with a small and weak head.
Aroma: ample notes of milk and medium chocolate with roasted grains.
Flavor: chocolate, leaning more to the dark chocolate side than does the aroma. Malty sweetness is mostly counter-balanced by English hops. Long lasting aftertase features dark roasted grains.
Feel: smooth; medium body
O: Chocolaty, even for style.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a dark brown color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, dark chocolate, and, earthy hops. This is thin for the style and if too cold the flavor really suffers. Plenty of other low cost local options if you want a solid porter.
