2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at the brewery. The porter started out as a nice and rich porter, but the exceesive dry hopping is too much and ruins this beer for me.

Plenty of roasty qualities in the aroma and flavor. Chocolatey notes come through nicely as well.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottled 10/30/02): Dark brown bidy with small tan head. Aroma is moderately sweet, roasty, chocolate, fairly rich. Taste is mild sweet, roasty, some chocolate, light vinous. Medium body. Nice beer, wonder how much better it would be if fresh.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Roasty aroma. Thin head with not much retention. I can
taste black malt or barley. Has nice burnt flavor that
adds to bitterness. Malty and delicious. Only complaint
is that it is a little on the dry side and would like more
