3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Colorado’s Best Beers in Conifer. Black appearance with a light tan head. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, light toffee, caramel malts, light earth and light roasted coffee notes. Similar flavor, adding medium sweetness and minimal bitterness. Light to medium body with a smooth, creamy feel, a little thin. Pretty tasty overall.

can from Hazel’s beverage world. Pours coca-cola brown with a thin brown head. Leaves a lot of lacing. has a bit of malt on the nose. Lots of nuttiness on the tongue which is an interesting twist on the porter. finishes clean. Not bad.

"There sure seamed to be a plethora of quality flavored porters on this trip and this one qualifies. Actually went there for this beer. Solid feel - not thin, fairly robust for the abv. Flavor and aroma very pleasant chocolate, vanilla, roasted malt, dark fruits and a wisp of smoke. Well done."

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Picked up a 12 oz can of this one. Sweet. Opaque brown/black with a tan head and decent lacing. Definite chocolate and vanilla on the nose, with a bit of roast and coffee. Light bodied, maybe a bit undercarbonated. Flavor is more chocolate and vanilla. No off-flavors to speak of, just pretty bland overall.

Can. Aroma is roasty, vanilla, no graham cracker... Taste is dry, bitter, smooth, medium carbonation. Overall, it’s nothing impressive.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft. Recommended by a local I met at another brewery, this was indeed a great beer. Black of course, and the graham aroma brought me back to my youth. The flavor is quite mocha-like. Sweet, an utterly rich dessert beer, exceptional in the narrow category. (#5640, 8/24/2014)

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing.
Body is dark brown to black.
Aroma is moderately malty (chocolate syrup, roasted grain), lightly hoppy (grapefruit), with a note of vanilla.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation.
Simple and generic...vanilla-choco-roast, which almost every porter/stout has at a bare minimum...would love to find the advertised smoked cedar and maybe a touch of the mulling spices, but nope...just the usual suspects in this one. Pretty much the definition of average. Needs more finishing bitterness and a less syrupy body...it’s not much fun to drink.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Smells far better than it tastes! Accurate truffle aroma that pots brown w/ a thin head & moderate lacing. The body is pretty thin & the truffle taste hits towards the finish. Not bad.
