3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Shared with Travlr, on draft. Typical porter aromas - chocolate and coffee. Taste follows the schedule. Typical porter flavors - good, but nothing amazing jumps out at you. A good porter.

Pours a dark dark brown with a light brown head. Smells of caramel, chocolate, and coffee. Taste is pretty delicious. I like the slightly bitter dry finish that this porter has. Mmm

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
unfortunately this evokes the image of young teen male vampires. That said, I have not seen twilight and my vampire experience its limited to angel, buffy and count chocula. This beer remains good for me. The brown color relaxses me whole the burnt vampire taste entrigues me. How bout that review jerk?

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at BWI. Dark brown, small beige head. Aroma of coffee grounds and caramel. Tastes like a dilute Starbucks coffee soda, if there is such a thing.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
20100726 tap at Bel Air location. Darkest brown, light haze, with lacing, sticky beige head. Aroma is loaded with coffee, burnt bread, mild floral perfumes. Pretty hefty on the palate, but quite dry and after a bit even becoming nicely ashy. Finishes with a long drying bitterness, a bit of dry grass, and retronasally persistent coffee. Nice stuff.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Bowie location. Pours very dark brown with small tan head. Aromas of roasted malts, chocolate, and some coffee. Flavors of heavily roasted malts, coffee, and lots of bitter chocolate. Finishes really bitter and dry. Not the most drinkable porter, but flavorful none-the-less.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Arundel Mills in Mar 2008: Pours a barely transparent dark mahogany with a thin light tan head. Aroma of sweet earthy dark caramel and chocolate malts with some smoky complexity. Body starts sweet and smooth with nice roasty smoky flavor befoer a more bittersweet, fairly full dark chocolatey finish. A very nice porter.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft @ Bel Air location in April 2008. Tastes and smells of coffee, chocolate, and bitter, roated malts. Nice balance of these elements, but not enough of them to make this one really outstanding. An enjoyable beer though.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft - Black pour with a tan head. A very nice aroma of chocolate and coffee. An excellent porter. Typically not my favorite style, this was excellent and full of sweet malt flavor.
