3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at a taproom in Boynton Beach This was a nice looking porter with tan head and lacing. The porter poured a deep black with coffee on the nose. The taste has coffee, some light vanilla, and hints of chocolate. The porter had a light body with average carbonation. This is porter that is as refreshing as the morning ’s first coffee. A smooth finish with coffee on your tongue.

12oz can via trade. Pours a medium clear brown with a puffy tan head. Aromas of vanilla dosed coffee. Taste is semi sweet and lightly bitter. Flavors of vanilla, coffe, roasted malt in that order. Very thin mouthfeel. Thin and underwhelming. It’s just ok.

Can--near black color with a small, tan head that leaves a ring and a touch of lacing. Aroma is espresso with some sweet overtones. Roasted taste, didn’t seem like too much coffee to me with some sweetness. Thinner than expected. Total wine.

Rich, parched, roasted nose. Black, with a thinnish, coating foam. Bad can. Sweetish, fresh coffee. Medium body. Tasty, and I don’t like coffee. ABC Liquors, Betton.

Nice black pour with little head retention. Aroma of coffee and dark toasted malt. The taste is big coffee and the vanilla is very prominent. Kind of bubbly, and wish it was a little more dense and smooth. Very good though.
