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.

nitro... canít 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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap. Poured black with a thick yellowish brown head that lasted throughout the beer. Aroma was full of light chocolate notes that clashed a bit with a honey night. Flavor began sweet from the honey but transfered to more of a milk chocolate finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is sugary sweet with roasted malt and caramel notes. Black hue with a good looking tan head. Flavor has notes of roasted coffee, chocolate but also an off metal taste. Medium to full bodied and soft. A bit of a cloying feel. Almost there but what happens near the finish kills it.
