3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle pours with a dark brown mahogany body that supports a thin dark tan head. The mild aroma offers up bits of dark roasted malts, chocolate and malt balls. The taste starts with lightly roasted malts, lightly roasted earthy coffee and then thin slivers of chocolate. Behind those notes the malts and a bit of nuttiness have an astringent edge to them. Classic Porter. The chocolate grows as more ounces are consumed.

On draft at Philadelphia airport. Deep brown with some reddish brown hues around the glass. Off white to tan head, dissipates quickly possibly due to the fact that this is poured ice cold, had to wait a few minutes for it to warm up to allow the aroma to open up a bit. Aroma is nice freshly roasted coffee, some milk chocolate, slight vanilla. Full thick mouthfeel with the expected taste of roasted beans, chocolate, some biscuit malt.

Best by date of 08.25.14.
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tumbler on 06.13.14.
A: 1 finger tan head. Opaque black with some red on the sides and bottom.
S: Chocolate malt. Slight coffee and woodiness.
T: Chocolate and roastiness dominate. Woodiness is subtle.
M: Creamy and bubbly.
O: This is one of the best porters that I’ve had. It leans towards a dessert, but it is not overwhelmingly sweet. The roastiness is not as strong or overdone as it is in others. It’s there just enough to balance the sweetness.
