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 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.
