Great beer. Had off a nitrous tap which made it very creamy. The taste was great.

Best by 11SEP12
Pours a nice coffee brown with an etched, light tan surface with the slightest rose color. Smells robustly soily, some cardboard, molasses and cocoa (nestle, carnation, something cheap). Flavor of coffee, cocoa, light toasted grain and some smoke. Thin with low carb and an off dry finish. Meh, wouldnít look for this or advise somebody to drink.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rich, roasted, but bright in flavor, black malt defines this porter, which is fresh on the nose and sweet, but almost sour, in roasted richness in the mouth. Nice and thin, but full enough on the palate, itís a nice choice for breakfast. It tastes like fresh roasted malt and a little like coffee grounds, especially in the finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: very dark brown, with caramel edging when backlit; one finger of creamy light tan head and minimal lace. Aroma: chocolate, coffee, some nuttiness and general roast. Taste: sweet milk and dark chocolate, some coffee and cream. Finish: smooth and roasty, with lingering sweet chocolate. Notes: This is a pretty one dimensional porter, focused almost entirely on sweet chocolate flavors. That said, itís still drinkable and tasty. It doesnít try to do too much, but what it does, it does just fine.

Beer of the Month club. Nose of roasted malts ( weak). Taste of some coffee, malt, touch of bitterness - but also a little thin on the finish, which detracts from the good start. Ok.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle - via Ale in the Mail. Black and opaque. Roasty aroma with some malt. Very good. Definite roasty flavor but without being more like a stout like many porters do.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Total beverage. Pours black with a thin khaki head. a bit of roasted malt on the nose. Smooth on the tongue without being particularly flavorful. finishes clean. Drinkable but unexciting, I see why this rarely leaves Colorado.
