3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Appearance: Near black body, though, when held aloft, some ruby-hued accents are noted at the far edges. Thin film of light tan foam.
Smell: Full roasty tones and a touch of bittersweet chocolate marked by citrus hops and worrisome, biting acrid notes.
Taste: Dark roasted malts with an acrid pop of burnt coffee. There’s some hints of sweet chocolate, but it’s not nearly enough to things smooth. Lemon and grapefruit tastes from the American-born hops. Ample bitterness joining in with the burnt grain astringency. Bitterish and deeply roasty at the end. Finishes quite dry.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Smooth mouthfeel.
Drinkability: A bit sub-par. The harshness of the overdone grain astringency certainly holds back the beer’s drinkability.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. Poured dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of pine hops and chocolate. Taste is similar, though less hoppy. Chocolate really comes forward, as does some swet malt. Mouth is pretty full. Pretty easy drinking. Overall, an interesting american stout.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark red hues with no head. Chocolate and a little roasted malt. Could use more hops for an american porter. Not too bad paired with the stout marinated pork chops.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a very dark brown with a creamy head. the aroma is a thin roastiness and a bit of hop character. The flavor is a bit thin and lacks the rounded maltiness I was hoping for. Not bad, and a great compliment to the porter and molasses marinated pork chop I had.
