3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Color is dark with a cream head. Smelled like a stout. Taste was roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, and caramel. It was like guinness but stronger and with more flavor. A solid porter over all. I enjoyed it!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
One of my favorite porters ever. This is a fairly full bodied beer with a wonderful dark color, along with a thin dark head. I usually have it from tap. Pronounced coffee taste throughout the pint, flavor becomes more rich and unique as it nears cellar/room temp.

Draft, dark dark pour, I had this in nitro (nitrogen injected) and the regular draft. I definitely think the nitro was better, and noticeably different. Dark chocolate/moca flavor, with a roasted after tasted. Pretty good porter.

Seems like they just stopped on this one...It is a great brew with okay flavor, but falls short of my porter expectations. Well, it falls within my expectations, but not of my GREAT porters.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft. This American Porter is dark brown with a moderate head. The rich and pleasant aroma is malty sweet with a hints of coffee and chocolate. The taste is lightly sweet, toasted malt with some roasted coffee. Bad Moon Porter has a very creamy, thick mouth feel. The after taste leaves you with expresso and faint hops. This is a very nice Porter.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Fell’s Point. The mild taste is of chocolate and coffee. It is medium bodied, smooth and a bit sweet. Not bad at all.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is truly amazing. Roasty coffee and sugary sweet oats. The taste and palate are a bit weak though and slightly watery. Tastes strong as it enters your mouth but the aftertaste is non existent. A fine brew.
