4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, listed 7% ABV. Pours a deep dark brown to black. A vigorous swirl of the glass produces a finger or so of a tight-bubbled mocha head that settles slowly to a ring. Nose involves a large amount of dark chocolate with some brown sugar, toasted malt notes, and touches of dark fruit. Taste is nice and sweet with some balancing bitterness, but not a whole lot. Fuller bodied, creamy, softer carb, with a nice chocolaty finish. Good solid porter, nice flavor and aromatics, with hearty body and strength. Another awesome dark beer from Dark Horse.

On tap, poured into a shaker. The beer is a dark, nearly opaque cola color with a soft foam, off-white head with a moderate retention, and only a touch of lace. The aroma is roasted grains and chocolate with a light licorice note in the background. The taste is a medium sweetness with a medium-light bitterness. The beer is syrupy with a creamy fizz carbonation and a medium full body flavored with lots of chocolate and roasted grain that finishes with a clean licorice spiciness and some light notes of dark fruits. The aftertaste is a licorice cleanliness with coffee and bread notes.

Bottle to glass, large rocky light brown head that diminished slowly,not much lacing,tawny cola color.A light malt aroma with a burnt note.This porter is rather light in body, thin and slick.The moderate sweet flavor with bitter finish was short lived. Really not much of a porter.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Botella. Color negro opaco. Espuma beige jabonosa. Baja formación y retención media. Aromas a chocolate, licor, avena, cafe, algún fruto rojo maduro....en boca cremosa fina y carbonatacion bastante viva... los mismos matices aunque el chocolate se hace mas presente, helado de chocolate, barquillo, los dulces dominan...final en el mismo rollo bastante suave, aunque mas a café.en mi opinion según la bebes va a menos...

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Dark brown body with a foamy khaki head that fades very quickly to a measly collar. Aroma has notes of semisweet chocolate, molasses, & roasted malt. Very light undercurrent of prune, steak sauce, & faint soy. Not bad, but different. Flavor is decisively more roasty with a strong malt body. Faint charcoal, bitter cocoa dust, mild anise, & a hint of coffee bean. Slight coffee bean, & some prune skin towards the finish that adds a light acrid hint of astringency. Thin-medium mouth feel. Decent.
