2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
An unspectacular porter. Actually delivers less than it promises. Too smokey and lacking in flavor. It gets a 2.6 but is really a failure. I brew better beer.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft 4 oz sample at the brewpub, 10/23/06: Pitch black with the barest of smoky coffee aromas. Not much to this one flavor-wise, pretty shallow. Just a kiss of sour-smoke, burnt toast. Least favorite here.

Had this on tap at little brothers. Poured very black with a thin head. Aroma was very choclatey and roasty. The flavor was of bitter choclate and some sweet maltiness. Overall pretty good but im not that big of a porter fan.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
I had this at O’Shaughnessy’s Public House under the name O’Shaughnessy’s Dam Good Porter. Pours black with a mocha head that fades pretty quick. Nice aroma of coffee, and sweet milk chocolate. Also lots of roasty notes. A real delight to the nose. Flavor is no disappointment either. This is a nice blend of chocolate sweetness and coffee bitters. Very robust and flavorful. Full mouthfeel with not too much carbonation. Very creamy and delicious.. This is a very nice porter and worthy of the name Dam Good Porter!

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light, light porter aroma with some fruit. Dark and transparent with virtually no head. A very mellow beer with some earthy/veggie (potato) notes. Indistinct, but balanced and easily drinkable for the porter novice. Lightish body, but smooth.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A very dark porter. Aroma is mild with some coffee, roast and a light hop aroma. Good body and carbonation. Flavor is roasted toffee with a mild bitterness. Some hoppy floral character, but minimal. Great flavors, but did not really stand out.
