3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(07.25.06) 12 oz brown bottle from Liquid Solutions. Best by 8/24/06. 5.2% ABV. Lot 1158b. roasted malt aroma. Poured clear dark brown with small white head. Soft carbonation. Light –to -medium bodied ale that starts dry with roasted malt and fruitness (raisin?) flavors. finished dry with light roasted malt and some bitterness. Monodimensional in flavor complexity. Though on the thin side, this is a good drinkable porter.

One of my favorite porters. I love the aroma, and the complexity of the flavor, very rich, with hints of molasses.

Had a nice roasted coffee flavor. The aroma was rather faint, but when you got up close to it, it was nice. Nice porter, but certainly not the best ever.

Black body. Aroma is coffee with roast, chocolate and caramel. Some malt bitterness here. I thought it was a decent porter, but I don’t see what all the hype is about. I’ve tasted a zillion others just like it..

The porter-style offering pours black and settles dark brown that appears red in the light. A fizzy, off-white head forms above. Poor lacing and a fully diminishing head. Aroma is of strong burnt malts, with notes of dark chocolate. Initial taste is moderately sweet which carries right through to the finish. Long duration. Watery and thin on the mouth, it has a sweet, smooth finish with light carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark mahogany, almost black with a tan head. Strong coffee aromas with semisweet chocolate and licorice. Prominent flavors of roasted coffee and chocolate. Balanced fruity sweetness with a restrained bitterness. Creamy texture, kinda light, but enjoyable.

Nice damn porter. I like the choloate and roasted coffe balance. Slight oakiness (coudl be the glass though). Flat mocha cream head. Very plesant drink, wished I had more. Not too strong, much more of a "session" porter. Pretty dark "cola" color when light is viewable. Not too chewy, pretty light an watery on the tongue.

Smells like baking chocolate, tastes like Cola and chopped nuts. Nice color, and suitably dry. I love this style in the fall in California -- light enough to fit the sunshine, dark enough to remind you what your family back east is looking up at when they stari out the the window. And so I like this too.
