bottle - Pours near black with a roast malt and coffee aroma. The flavor is much the same with nicely accented coffee notes and a decently balanced bitterness. I thought it was a touch thin and overall itís alright, but Iíve had better porters.

Poured deep brown with small brown head. Aroma of malt and not to much else. Flavor was terrible. For a minute I thought I was drinking out of a drity creek or something. One of the worst porters iíve encountered.

Pours a deep brownish black with a foamy tan head. Aroma of roasted barley, malt and chocolate. Goes down easy with a nice bitter chocolate, sour, toasted barley flavor. Pretty nice porter.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from bottle black with a tan head. Aromas of roasted grains and warmed chocolate. The beer tastes of toatsted grains, roast coffee and, on the sweeter side, bittersweet chocolate. There is a smooth almost creamy malt mouthfeel, yet itís easy to drink with subtle bitterness. Iíll be buying this one again.
