3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. A hazy red-brown beer with a brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with strong notes of chocolate, as well as lighter notes of coffee and alcohol. The flavor is slightly acidic from hard roasted malt, but may also from a slight infection, which gives it a light touch of vegetables. If just the flavor was as good as the aroma.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown color, hazy. Caramel and chocolatey beer, quite strong bitterness; some nutty aroma; good body strength; in the end there is also enough roasted malt. It may be not bad, but it’s a bit infected, with some sourness.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A: The pour is a dark brown color with a bit of red when looked at through the light. There’s a finger of tan foam to cap it off.
S: Pretty typical aroma for a porter. Some dark chocolate to go with a lot of roasted malt notes. There’s a little bit of vanilla, even, and certainly a touch of coffee.
T: Like the nose, the roasted malt character is strong in this beer. A mild bitterness results, but there’s a smooth, sweet chocolate flavor to mellow that out. Seems to be even a hint of vanilla or cream.
M: The body is medium with a moderate level of carbonation. Not quite creamy on the tongue.
D: I really enjoyed this beer, as I have with almost all Central Waters beers. A really nice one to enjoy last night.
