12 Oz bottle poured. Part of my new year ratebeer resolution is to go back and rate all the beers I had a bunch before my rating days and give them the reviews they deserve. Especially the great ones. I have loved this beer for so long, it’s time I make it official. Dark brown pour with a thin fizz head. Caramel malt aroma. Flavor is mild milk chocolate, roasted malt and a mild nutty finish. Something about this beer. It’s a long time favorite of mine, and has to be one of the most refreshing porters around. Love this beer.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Poured from the tap into a pint glass. The appearance is a dark brown color with a medium sized tan colored head. The aroma is a fantastic blend of roasted malt and cocoa. the flavor is rich and full and is a perfect match for the appearance and aroma. The taste is roasted malt with cocoa and coffee as an aftertaste. This is one of the best beers I have ever had.
