3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Easy drinking porter. The aroma was a faint roasted grain. The color was quite dark with an off white foamy head. Medium body that did not fill me up and it went well with a turkey burger. The flavor was roasted but a little subdued for my liking. The was a creamy quality and lactose element that reminded me of some sweet stouts. Good staple porter.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma is dark fruits, roasted coffee and chocolate, cherry, and a bit of booze. Appearance is a deep, dark brown with a decent sized brown head that dissipates quickly, leaving little lacing. Good hop character with lightly roasted chocolate and coffee, as well as a bit of toffee and molasses. Nothing too heavy. Remarkably well balanced and smooth. A bit of bready, sweet caramel to finish it off. Medium bodied. Goes down pretty easy. Overall a great example of a porter. Extremely well balanced with a nice bunch of flavors.

Bottle. Dark rich roast flavor with a little hop bitterness. Very smooth with easy-going aftertaste. A very complex and rich brew that is great by itself or paired with food (think comfort food like Mac and Cheese!)

Pours a beautiful dark brown color with a tight khaki head. Aromas and flavors of chocolate, coffee, nuts and a hint of citrus from the hops. Body was a bit thin but overall this is a great example of what a porter should be.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, shared by me... in my dining room... just now.
Pours a very very dark reddish brown with a good head and decent lacing on the glass.
The aroma is cocoa and raw coffee beans. Itís lightly sweet smelling with some mild fruity hop character.
The flavor is really well balanced, not especially sweet at all but mildly so with a fairly bitter roasty character.Itís got a lot of chocolate and coffee notes along with a pretty nicely defined "c" hop flavor.
Easily something I could drink a whole lot of no doubt.
