3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, tobacco, pear. Appears dark brown, nearly black, and opaque with a big frothy caramel head and some lace. Tastes sweet upfront of pear and some honey followed by a balancing coffee and dark chocolate bitterness. Palate is a bit fuller than ordinary. Overall, good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap: deep brown near the edges, nearly black in the center with a chunky, khaki collar that has good staying power. Aroma has notes of bitter chocolates & cocoa dust, residual "honey" sweetness, some caramel, light brown sugar, perhaps inducing a reminder of graham cracker. Taste is pretty sweet, but controlled. Dark chocolate, roasted malt, light caramel, honey finish. A touch of ashy hops with some faint brown sugar notes. A pretty nice & easy drinking porter.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at the brewpub. Pours brownish-black with a medium tan head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and a touch of honey. Light body with flavors of sweet malt, honey and a tinge of mineral water. The finish is sweet and roasty with a short malt aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

Draft. A nice porter with a little extra sweetness from the honey. Smooth, chocolate presence is there. I had just a sample but will try more on another visit.

nitro... can’t believe there is so much honey in this, I get a bit of the chocolate but this is so dull, the base must be terrible

On nitro tap at the brewery. Pours a dark brown with a thick tan head. Aroma of chalky malt (it did not have a strong aroma). Flavor of bitter chocolate, light honey sweetness, and sweet roasted malt. A decent porter that is on the sweet side.
