3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz. undated bottle poured dark brown, with a thin tan head that immediately turns to a small ring.. Aroma: a lot of chocolate mixed in with medium and dark roasted malts. Rather subdued.
Taste: Moderate level of malt with chocolate and a trace of spicy hops. A little earthy. More from the roasted malt in the aftertaste than earlier on.
A bit light bodied for style, but very smooth; rather low carbonation.
O: rather light and uninteresting porter except for the high level of chocolate.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottled. Poured cola brown with a colossal cap of loose-bubbled beige head.. not a great sign. The aroma picked up sour, roasty coffee and black malts.. light vanilla and cherry dust accents.. not good. The flavor found sour, sticky, roasted black malts and cherry skins throughout.. some oxidation and more sourness on the finish. Light-medium bodied and sour on the palate.. not good at all, and almost certainly infected.. I’d give a fresh one another shot.

Very dark brown beer, clear. Light off white head. Typical Porter nose - slightly sour, a little smoky and malty. Semi soft palate. Tangy dark malt, subtle smoke and coffee followed by soft red fruits, Raspberry being the most noticeable. A little unsweet chocolate as well. A very decent Porter.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Purchased at Habersham Beverage Depot in Savannah, GA; enjoyed from my balcony view of the ocean on my final night of vacation in Myrtle Beach, SC. Appearance is a very dark black with no head, looks very thick which is surprising for the style. Aroma of chocolate, peppermint, molasses, smells intense. Taste is also intense, it does have a soy sauce like consistency, goes down relatively smooth and somewhat thick/syrupy. Molasses like flavor dominates the chocolate, slight bit of coffee bitterness. One of the thickest porters I’ve had to date. It’s good but not too good, happy to have tried it, this one almost tastes stronger than the 4.75% ABV states.
