3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured with a full 1 inch head with some lacing. This Porter is true to style. The color is dark brown not black. The taste is laced with nuttiness. I don’t know what impact organic ingredients play. This is a good Porter but not outstanding.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown with a definite ruby hue to it. Small dense foamy brown head. Nose is coffee and laden with roasted malts. There’s a nice caramel sweetness to it as well. The flavors are easily summed up with roasted malt, light coffee and anise, with burnt or smoky wood and caramel. Body is light body and a bit bitter and oily. Finishes smokier and more bitter than the taste. More coffee too. Good beer!

I really enjoyed this porter. I found it to be full, flavorful and true to style. A slightly lighter version than many of those one finds these days and I think that is what I enjoyed so much. Why brew a porter to stout strength?
Malty, roasted notes. Touch smoky. Mildy, mildly sweet. Nicely hopped and easily drinkable. This could become a staple around here.

New in Town!
Pours a dark amber brown body with a small off white head. The aroma has hints of French vanilla coffee, and chocolate. The flavor also has some bitter and toasted chocolate malt notes along with some raisin and fig. The palate is fairly luscious… this is a nicely brewed porter!

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle Poursdark reddish brown. Not black like some of the style. Virturally no head but fine lacing. Dark roasted nut and coffee aromas. Yes, coffee flavor is most prominant. Taste is a bit thin but quite good. Slightly sweet. Smokey and coffee. Feel is agan, somewhat thin and plain. Carbonation is low, almost flat. A nice soft finish.
Not my favorite porter but pretty good.

A very nice Porter with the usual and standard flavors. Nice malt tones with not a lot of hop as so many west coast brews feature.

Man can somebody say chocolate milk? That is what the nose and palate smell and taste like, nice dark brown to black body with a tan frothy head that last. Medium carbonation and not too chewy.

Dark, coffee look with a coffee aroma. Smoth, soft head. Hazelnut came out in the aroma. Bittery front and then a smooth chocolatey back. Much like mocha in the end. Very good porter. Nice.
