3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Growler courtesy of BlueOkie. Pours deep mahogany with nice mocha head. The aroma is a bit odd with firm earthiness moving roasty with a mild background of red wine like fruity tannin tartness and then almost ashy and dark chocolate. The taste is pretty rich with malts and chocolate blending toward earthiness, some roasted malt astringency and then the out of place red wine tannin tartness. It ends mildly dry and roasty.

Thanks to BA BlueOkie for the share. Pours brown with an off-white head. Nose is cocoa, chocolate, roasted nuts, and some fruit quality. Flavor is similar with a medium body and roasted nut and almost dark fruit sweetness. Enjoyable, quaffable porter. Thanks, Scot!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
[Tap] Pours a very dark brown color with an inch worth of beige head. Chocolate, coffee and a touch of smoke in the nose. The taste of this brew is heavily of chocolate and molasses. Notes of amaretto and burnt caramel. Thick and full flavored. One interesting thing I found with this beer was a creamy smoothness until the finish, which was quite dry and roasted. Another great Coop beer!

On tap at Tapworks in OKC. Pours dark brown with tan head. Aroma is heavy with roasted malts and lot of chocolate with some light caramel. Flavor is very roasty with lots of chocolate and some caramel. Finishes dry and thick. Almost like a bitter chocolate milkshake. Tasty brew but a little unbalanced. Pretty good.

Enjoyed on tap at brewery with a private tour. Very nice dark brown color. The head was perfect, with great german lace. Nice and balanced chocolate and roasted smell. The Porter was a great and balanced Porter. Not a stout for sure, it was done right and I loved drinking it.
