4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
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!)

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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. It’s 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.It’s 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.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours dark brown/black with a brownish head. Good carbonation. The aroma is clean, perhaps too clean. I miss the wonderful esters present in English Porters like Fuller´s. The flavor is quite roasty with an ample bitterness. Lots of roasted coffee character through the use (overuse?) of black patent malt. Good beer, but it tastes like a hundred other craft Porters out there. And just as with so many others, the fine line between Robust Porter and Dry Stout seems to have been crossed. Just another Stout hiding behind the Porter name.
