Bottle. Very dark brown/black pour, frothy lasting head and an aroma of light roasty chocolate. Flavor has a medium bodied light toasted dark malt, hints of light chocolate and coffee and finished slightly dry. Nice porter, expecially at $6/bomber.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a large bottle into a trumpet glass to drink. The beer had a rich, dark black color with a big creamy dark tan head with great retention, and excellent cling and lacing. Its aroma featured smokey chocolate and coffee tones, with notes of molasses and sugar, along with some earthy and grainy bitterness and tones of licorice. The beer was fairly sweet and malty with some caramel and lighter chocolate tones along with some subtle earthy bitterness. It was a fairly wet and watery beer without a thick or full mouthfeel, but had good lively carbonation.

I was surprised to see this on the shelf since Iíve barely heard of Cisco. Dark black with a fluffy head, looks like a rootbeer float. Smells roasty, delcious. The flavor had chocolate, roast, malts, pretty good. I was surprised how much I liked this but Iím a sucker for a good porter.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz bottle. Black pour, light brown foam. Nice raosted barley nose, loads of roast, burnt malt, dark chocolate. Tastes of burnt grains, chocolate, licorice, cocoa. Very well balanced. Soft and creamy, a bit on the heavier side. A bit too heavy to session, but its worth the attempt. So much flavor. This Porter is badass, full of flavor! (3487)

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
interesting porter, I think the longer it sat at room temperature the better it was tasting. Black pour, off brown head, decent lacing. Definite chocolate teaste, with roasted flavors as well. Balanced, medium body, slight bitter chocolatey finish.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rich, smoky aroma has an overtone of semi-sweet chocolate and subtle roast malt and licorice notes. It pours a deep, warm sable with a thick, fluffy and rather persistent tan head. Flavor, though, lacks the depth that the aroma promised - still smoky like a good porter with roast malt and coffee notes and hints of licorice and chocolate, just not as strong as the bouquet. Texture has OK body but plenty of fizz. Overall, a good porter, if not an outstanding one. Definitely worth a try, especially if you like dark beers.
