3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the brewery. Pours an opaque dark brown with a whispy off-white head. Good, straightforward chocolate, roast porter with a bold flavor and a slightly bitter finish. A nice flavorful example of the style but nothing exciting here. Moderate carbonation and watery mouthfeel.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Crown. Pours a nice enough near black, red at the edges with a tan head. Nose is coffee roast, caramel, faint herbal hops. Also a charred note. On tasting, more of that dark malt char that lends an astringency. Caramel notes are pretty big here with the coffee. Drying roasty finish. Hops are very subdued overall. Okay Porter.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap pour at Industrial Revolution in Valpo - Pours dark with an off white head. Aroma is sweet malt, some roasty notes, and chocolatey. Flavor is chocolate, roasted malt, dark cherry, and a hint of coffee. Slightly thin on the palate, it is still not untrue to the style. Good offering that Iíd definitely enjoy again if given the opportunity

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at Twenty Tap in Indianapolis. The beer is a dark brown color with a medium tan head that diminishes steadily to an outer ring. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee and a bit of sweet chocolate. Medium, semi-dry body with a roasty character and flavors of chocolate malt and hops. The finish is roasty with a coffee aftertaste. Decent overall.
