2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sample from the tap at the brewpub. Pours a translucent deep brown with a light brown head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has notes of roasted malts and chocolate as well as a realtively strong butterscotch notes. Flavor begins with roasted malts and chocolate, but finishes with strong butterscotch and sweet grains.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Delafield Brewhaus. Poured very deep brown with a 2" creamy tan head.. good lookin’ beer! The aroma picked up toasted nutty notes, chocolate, and coffee.. quite dry and sweet overall. The flavor had dry sweeter chocolates, a little molasses, and dark fruits.. a dry-roasted coffee bitterness worked well in accenting the edges.. the tasty finish was quite bitter. Grainy on the palate with the body on the lighter side.. could’ve used a bit more carbonation.. kind of fell off the finish. Very solid overall.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft at the brewpub. Pretty much the spot-on visuals, black enough. Too thin for my liking, but drinks with an OK bitter chocolate edge, bit of an ashy, gritty feel. (#5094, 7/2/2013)

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Looks pretty good - dark brown, with a soapy tan head - medium bodied, with a creamy mouthfeel - semi-sweet vanilla and roasted malt give way to a smoky, slightly ashy finish - the ashy character gets really strong as it warms, and kind of takes over the beer - meh.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the brewery. Chalky brown-black. Steady beige head. Mild, subdued chocolate aroma. Leagues better than the Amber, but still a little thin and watery. Some caramel tones, specialty malts cover up the odd Delafield undertones. Dealable, about as nice as a Michelob Porter without the quality control.
