Bottle. He pour is a dirty brown. The aroma is sweet toffee and some roastyness. The taste continues with the toffee, but more subtle than the nose. A little thin overall, but good beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark nutty brown with an inch of tan head. The nose is big on nutty chocolate notes with a light underlying herbal aroma. A bit bitter in the flavour with sweet chocolate and espresso flavours. A little light in the body with no carbonation. Overall, an interesting yet puzzling brew. Not sure how to describe it....a bit sour, herbal, roasted. Good but odd.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
A bit thin for a porter, a tad of sour edge so better as it warms. Dark brown with a wisp of head. OK drinkability.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark, rudy brown with a medium tan head. Dark chocolate and coffee aromas pour out of the glass. Rich chocolate flavor follows with a cake-like breadiness. Although the texture is rich, the body is right in style for a Porter, not too thin, not to thick. A bit of dark roasted coffee taste comes through along with a slight bitter acridness that nicely balances out the sweet chocolate. There’s an underlying earthiness to this but again it’s restrained. Leaves a lasting bittersweet chocolate flavor behind along with the coffee and slightly charred wood. The 8% ABV is completely hidden here and makes this dangerously and deliciously drinkable.

Bottle. Chocolate fudge malt and light herbal hay aroma. Dark chestnut brown with moderate head. Sweet chocolate malt and moderately bitter herbal grass flavor. Light body especially for the style. Nice beer but expected more.

22oz bottle shared by Ben. Solid. Doesn’t blow me out of the water like a lot of the other CC beers we tried that night. Chalky vanilla chocolate. Classic. Well done. Coffee chocolate tones.
