3.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma is sweet caramel, appearance is more of a brown than a dark porter, taste is caramel/chocolate/malt. Overall a very sessionable porter that is not too intrusive.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Poured clear, medium reddish-brown with a short, tightly-bubbled beige head. The aroma picked up sweeter chocolate and vanilla notes with light accents of burnt licorice. The flavor found roasty licorice and sticky black malts, with charred vanilla beans on the edges.. lots of dry roast on the finish. Lighter-bodied, dry, and a little scratchy on the palate.. touches of sourness on the back-end.. this was an aiight drinker.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Breeze Thru. Pours a reddish brown with a rapidly disappearing tan head. Aroma has cherries, chocolate and some roast. Taste is of light bittersweet chocolate, some caramel, some dark fruits. Leaning toward sweet and a bit watery. Medium bodied. Finishes lightly sweet and fruity. Dissipates into a choco/cherry lager with the lack of depth. Decent flavors.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dispensed to plastic at Husby’s for this year’s Sister Bay Fall Fest. Showed a black/brown color, with a decent layer of frothy, tan head foam, and spots & strands of lacing. The aroma was roasted & cocoa, with a touch of woodiness to the nose. The taste was rather dry, with a resiny, tanniny bitterness, and fair malt. A little less than medium bodied, okay carbonation, but a bit thin texture wise. An acceptable brew that fit the occasion well.
