4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz can pours with a nice dark brown body that supports a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up malt sweetened roasted malts, chocolate and then a thin layer of molasses and caramel malts. The taste is pretty thick with malt and molasses sweetness that sweetens up the roasted malts and chocolate as well as earthy coffee goodness. In the background I get some spicy black licorice. Very nice.

Can provided by the beernut. Consumed with gusto by myself. The thing about a solid English porter iz that it shows a good deal of reserve. This porter does just that. In the description it sounss as if it may be a hop bomb in porter’s clothing. It is not. Well built and round in all the right places. Just the right amount of twang. Hmmm sounds like a girl i picked up in a honky tonk back in college.
