4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2010 Nice dark color, cream color head. Rich chocolate taste but it doesn’t overpower. The flavor does not linger. Some beers leave a bitter after taste but not this one.

This beer is delicious. A lot of coffee notes, with a hint of chocolate. Perfectly bittersweet. Smooth finish, with a lingering "dark chocolate" taste in your mouth.

Sample at Cumberland on 9/14/13. Darkest brown pour with a thick tan nitro head. Aroma of malt, cream, chocolate and vanilla. Malty and chocolatey flavor with some vanilla sweetness before a bitter, roasty finish.

on draft at mellow mushroom...pours dark brown with the obvious nitro head that dissipates from the bottom up and yet doesnt disappear. the nutty malt aroma is quite good. the flavor is sweet malt and that same nuttiness...a definite solid porter.

Aroma of chocolate, light coffee roastiness and a touch of red grape. Appearance was dark amber with bone head. Flavor matched the nose, but with the roast level brought up a notch. Palate is soft and oily. Average.
