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.

Bottle. Pours brown with a big creamy beige head and nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of coffee, smoke, caramel, mocha. Sweet maltiness, notes of coffee, chocolate cake, cocoa, caramel, dark fruit, roasted grains, light acidity with dry finish. Medium-bodied, smooth and pleasant to drink. Nice.

Tap at Imazato. Dark brown pour with highlights. Aroma of roasted malt and light cocoa. Taste follows. Nicely carbonated, medium body, smooth drinking. Pretty much a textbook porter. Solid, easy drinking, decent flavour.

Bottle poured into a nonick pint. Pours a deep, dark brown with a hint of ruby and a cream colored head. Nice lacing. Milk and dark chocolate with a hint of roasted coffee to the nose. Very roasty at first with some cream and vanilla. A little hoppy on a mostly dry and malty finish. Creamy and smooth palate with just a bit of carbonation. Excellent. Just a great porter. Really drinkable and I?ll be back for more!

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is a very solid porter! 12 oz variety pack. Pitch black pour with a beautiful tan head. The head laced around the inside of the glass very nicely. The nose was deep and balanced with notes of chocolate, vanilla, cream, roasted malts and some light flowery hops. The body and balance of flavors were spot on. This is one smooth and drinkable porter! The mouthfeel was silky and smooth and the flavors were extremely delicious. I tasted flavors of chocolate, cream, vanilla, roasted malt, light caramel, smoke and slight hoppiness. I haven’t had a porter this good in a long time!

Smooth, no aftertaste, aroma too understated, not nutty enough, a little too much hops for me.
