2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a dark reddish brown with an off white head. Some chocolate and nutty aromas but faint. The taste is a bit light for a porter but does have some bitterness that seems to lessen the sweetness a good bit. Not bad, and it is drinkable, but it doesn’t have anything really standing out about it. Average...

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The appearance has a clear very dark reddish brown color with a large off-white head that fades fairly quickly, and the aroma is a single-faceted scent of roasted malts. The taste is a bit disappointing due to the lack of robustness seen through the slight sourness, touch of sweetness, and touch of umami; furthermore, the palate combines thin and slick texture, average carbonation, medium body, and a malty finish, the last of which is the only redeeming factor of this beer when it’s in your mouth.

I like this beer for the price. Connoisseurs will not rank this among "best" beers, but if you want a nice, malty porter for a Kroger price, this is this way to go.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Dark Porter with a large creamy head. The aroma is flat for the most part and the taste and palate leaves something to be desired.

Aroma is dark malts, medium sweetness and toffee/caramel. The flavor is dark malts, fruit/berries and a very off/chemical flavor in the finish.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Not much in the way of aroma or taste, especially for a porter. It had a nice tan head, and a rich dark brown color.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
1 pint can. It pours a dark reddish brown with a large tan head. It has a roasted and coffee aroma along with a metallic can aroma. It has a chocolate, roasted and coffee flavor but the body is way to thin and there is a bit of a sour aftertaste. Although this beer is drinkable I wouldn’t buy it again and hold little hope that other beers by this brewery are much better.

Bottle. Pours a clear darker brown color with a small tan head on it. Nose is a little roasty and slightly sweet from some caramel tones coming through. Taste seems a little sour to me, with only a little roasting coming through in the taste. Not a particularly good porter.

3.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep ruby red with a lasting head. Aroma of roasted malt is faint. Flavor is well balanced and smooth. Notes of chocolate and dark fruit. An easy to drink porter but nothing to rave about.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
16oz can, thanks to caterwaul. Shared with friends over a game of Catan. Clear red / brown color. Not as dark as a porter typically is. Some rocky, off-white head. Bubbly lace. Medium body. Lighter, kind of soft carbonation. More dry finish. Bit thin for a craft porter. On par for a macro porter. Moderate sweet taste is predominant, and nearly cloying. Some sweet chocolate, cocoa powder, dark fruit, artificial candy sweetness. Mediocre.
