4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thick and rich, i can only handle about two of these in a night, but they are delicious. Nice thick head, and hoppy mocha flavor. IIts only major problem is that its impossible to drink a lot of.

Had this at a bar one night. The next day went and bought a six pack. I really enjoy this beer. Pours dark brown with tan head. Nice chocolate flavor with malt. As porters go this is one of the tops for me.

Sweet chocoloate and malt aroma. Dark brown with amber highlights and a bubble thumb thick head. Roasty fore which transitions quickly to smooth chocolate and mild creamed coffee notes and finishes with a hint of molasses and maple syrup. Very tasty and full flavor wise.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark ruby, small cappuchino head. A bit sweetish, light roast plus yeast in the nose. Not very typical Porter. Chocolaty, cold coffee flavor, a bit sweet, not very intensive flavor. Basic, good drinkable "session porter".

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Intensely smooth and rich taste. Anise and licorice and alcohol aroma. Black as molasses and some of its taste. Excellent with my meal. Toast, well balanced, without being very sweet nor coffee nor overly bitter. Well carbonated. Bit of sourness mid-sip.

This dark ale poured with a small tan head, eliciting a vanilla aroma. The flavor was full and balanced, with a slightly bitter hop finish.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Had a good roasty sweet malty aroma but seened to go downhill from there. Dark body with small tan head. Thought I would get a good rich roasted flavor from aroma. But thought body was thin and somewhat watered down. Needed a palate cleaner after this one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep brown. Decent aroma. Tastes chocolatey and sweet, sweeter than the stout. Very good for what it is.
