3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Was expecting more from the ratings. Dark Chocolate and some roasty malts. Much more alcohol in the aroma and taste than I would have though from a 5.2%. Typical dark brown/black color with a moderately tan head.

Pours dark Brown, almost no light through, slight, thin khaki head, thin lacing. Aroma roast, caramel, slight chocolate, coffee and earthy hops. Taste big roast, black malt, cracker, caramel, earthy hops and chocolate and coffee in the background. Medium body, slightly higher carbonation, very slight roast astringency, dry finish. Overall very good beer, excellent representation of style, very tasty, complex and balanced.

"bigger, thicker mouthfeel than a lot of porters, which is why it stands out from the crowd. has all the chocolaty, roasted goodness you can ask for...not too many american porters are better. i’ve had this one a lot, so sometimes it’s taken for granted, but it always stands out in a taste-off."

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark brown with a medium tan head that leaves good lacing. Nose is of roasted nuts and coffee. Taste is not an ounce sweet with some nice roasted and chocolatey notes. Some lactose-like sweet afterthought and more nuts. Body is medium and carbonation moderately high. Overall a fine porter.

Black color and no light comes through brew. Low in sweetness...but light on flavor compared to my favorite porters.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. Translucent edged deep brown-amber body. Steady, lacy beige head. A pretty classic US Porter. Clean and well executed. On the fuller side of medium bodied, very drinkable. Smooth roasty chocolate tones. A lot of Porters are more exciting than this, but this is straight down the middle, solid.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Deep brown body, not quite jet black with a quick fading khaki foam that settles to a small film & collar. Aroma of light coffee beans, some chocolate malt, a bit of creamy sweetness, & a faint touch of roast. More dark chocolate & roasted malt in the flavor with a small undercurrent of residual sweetness for balance. A touch of coffee beans & some very faint black licorice. Thin body, washy mouth feel.
