3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap, pours dark brown with a slight redness with a light tan head with hardly any lacing. Smells of chocolate, coffee, and roasted malt. Tasted the same as it smells. Mouthfeel is thick and creamy. This was the only porter I drank back before I knew more about beer. I’d have to say its still one of my favorites. The chocolate and roasted flavors In this beer are amazing.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours near opague dark coffee brown, with ample pillowy cappuccino head. Aromas of roasted malt, with a subtle sweet-sour touch. Flavor starts lightly sweet then builds to a darker deeper drier roast flavor... not quite coffee, almost smokey. I like how the flavor blooms. Palate is lightly creamy with cleansing dry finish. This is very nice.

An excellent porter. Dark, coffee notes, not too over the top coffee though.

Bottle. Dark brown/black with thick cream head. Dark choc, roasted coffee, hop freshness on the nose. Flavours of choc malt, good roastiness and nice hop bitterness through the mid to late palate. Nice residual smokiness. Over carbonated unfortunately.

12 Oz. Bottle poured into a chilled glass. Slight hoppy aroma with definite chocolate background. Pours dark brown with a nice tan head. Lightly sweet taste and again, you can sense the chocolate in the background. Creamy texture with a great follow through. Love this beer!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle. Pours an opaque black, with a medium light beige head, which lasts well and leaves good lacing. Dark chocolate and latte are the dominant aromas, with herbal and floral hops notes in the mix also. Quite strong floral and fruity hops up front give way to dark berry notes and chocolate in the mid-palate. Mild coffee and a pleasantly savoury flavour make up the finish. A good porter from a consistently good brewery.

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.

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!)
