3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle on 10/28/15. Pours pitch black with a thin tan head that dissipates to a ring on the outside of the glass. Nose is coffee and roasted malt, chocolate. Taste is the same. Robust roasted malt. Coffee, cocoa, not much else but hits the style profile and does it well. Some smoky elements perhaps. Tasty

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark in color on pour with a brownish head. There was a nice chocolate and smoke flavor to this beer. Not as sweet as most porters, and closers to a stout beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sexy black dress pour, gives good head, lots of lace- your a perv. Blueberry chocolate aroma, light smoke cherrywood. Caramel, nut, real nice. Same in taste. Very smooth creamy, almost not a porter but more a stout, real nice. Some earthy, slight citrus pine. Me like.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A 10 minute pour......the head blew up an inch over the top of the glass and didn’t allow the rest of the bottle to be poured in for 8 minutes, then foamed again as the last 2 ounces were put in. Disappointing. Aroma is washed out but hints of coffee, little else.....taste is quite good, coffee, unsweetened chocolate, nicely bittered, but obviously overcarbed. Pity.
