The beer has a dark cola brown body and sports a small tan head. Aromas include chocolate roast, subtle coffee. Perhaps a touch of vanilla in the flavor with a hint of smoke. Chocolates, mild sweetness. A touch of roast and coffee beans. Pretty easy drinking with moderate carbonation and a delicate bitterness in the finish. Pretty good.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice aroma of dark chocolate, roasted malt, and maple syrup. Nice ebony color...tannish head. Sweet roasted chocolate flavor up front. Notes of eepresso and coffee. Finishes with a sweet begining, followed by bitter chocolate that coats nicely and lingers just the right amount of time. Creamy mouth feel...nice brew.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a bottle bought at Binny’s in Chicago. Pours a dark brown to black with a thin tan head that dissipates quickly into a faint and uneven layer. Aroma is of roasty grains, light chocolate, faint coffee, cola, and faint caramel. More sweetness and vanilla comes out as the beer warms. Flavor is roasted grains and coffee right up front that linger throughout the taste and after. Distant notes of chocolate and maltiness are present but very subtle. The body is medium to light but sufficient and has just a touch of sweetness to it. I would have liked a little more roundness to the body and mouthfeel but overall, this is a fine porter. Not quite as big and chewy as some of the others but a solid beer and something I will definitely buy again.

Maybe I got a bad batch? The bottle I got was really tart. I leave it in my mouth and it’s just sour. There’s some nice roast and chocolate in there, but it seems like bad quality control. I tend to like sours, but this one would need some fruity notes or more character to be good as one.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark brown with a tan head, Aroma is light, slight roast, light cocoa. Taste is light. Slight roast up front that rolls through some malty sweetness, slight bitter hop then back into a bakers chocolate sweetness. Slight peanut butter sensation? Creamy body, but a bit light. This is being enhanced by the nitro tap.

Tap pour. Deep brown with white head. Muted nose of dark bread, toasted malt, and faint cacao nibs. Gets more interesting as it warms. Taste is much the same. Rough edges. Just above average; could use refinement.
