3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
bottle @ Double Shoppe / Ocean Springs MS --- Aroma of earthy bitter chocolate malt. Clear black color, brown head that slowly drops to a cover, lace that slides back into the drink. Taste is roasted malt, chocolate, and black coffee. All three are assertive and full-bodied. On the swallow, it runs a little fizzy, and somewhat sweeter. That is short lived, though, as mild bittering returns it to a more bitter version of the openers. A big, balanced, satisfying brew.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Mystery Romp has a medium, quickly-dying, beige head, tiny ascending bubbles, a dark-brown, nearly black, appearance, and almost no lacing left behind. The aroma is of dark-roasted malt, char, black coffee, baker’s chocolate, and toast crust. Taste is of all that, with acidity and burnt bitterness closing out the sip. Mouthfeel is rather thin and oddly prickly. Mystery Romp finishes semi-dry. RJT

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a nearly black with a quickly dissipating espresso head. Caramel coffee and cream nose. Lacking in body. Taste approximates the nose, but the bitterness of coffee gets expressed.

Bottle as an extra, thanks! Pours opaque black with a medium brown creamy head that dissipates slowly with nice lacing. Aroma is solid roasty, coffee, chocolate, a bit of ashtray. Flavor is medium sweet, light bitter, somewhat acidic and odd, seems like coffee has gone stale here. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel.

If this had the mouthfeel it would be awesome. Still good but very quick head. Nice coffee chocolate flavor. Sweet kinda thin on the tongue.

Pours very dark brown/black with a dark khaki head. Aroma is heavy dark chocolate, hot coacoa, roasted malt. Flavor is lighter than aroma but follows suit. Medium-light body. Creamy texture. Very good, solid porter, chocolatey delight.
