3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Smells dark and chocolaty. Pours deep brown with ruby accents with a foamy tan head. Taste hits the right notes between sweet and bitter. Goes down smooth with a sweet aftertaste.

Has a nice roast malt smoke flavor. Seemed a bit thin, has a bit of a roast aroma, pretty standard good porter.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
0.355 bottle. Black, impenetrable color and a big, thick, cream-colored head which leaves not a bad lacing. Strong notes of toasted malts on the nose, coffee, a touch of licorice and dark bread; overall medium sweet. Taste is malty as well but this time with a lot of roast and smoke; again medium sweet with a tinge of bitterness. Medium body, a bit creamy texture though hinting towards slick, carbonation is soft. Finish is sweeter than the rest and introduces a fleeting sour tone. Overall the beer is really good and the only thing preventing me from giving it a higher mark is slight wateriness which is unwelcome in porters.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The black hazy beer with huge tan head smells nice of roased notes and a little hop. The beer is medium bodied at best, I would even say a bit watery, with nice bitterness. For me the biggest issue is the carbonation. So much that it takes away from the creamy mouthfeel and becomes watery.

Pours a black color with a tan head. Aroma has plenty of chocolate with some molasses, roasted malts, and a hint of coffee. Flavor is also full of chocolate with the roasted malts and coffee. Slight bitterness on the finish as well.

Good malt backbone with touches of chocolate. Little carb, the brew is not totally opaque. Super subtle bitterness that rounds out the palate with a hint of coffee. Very drinkable and very...true to the style?
