Not much aroma but nice for what it is. Very smooth mix chocolatey flavors with some definite peat flavors. First taste was almost like a Coke but a different affertaste and not.so much carbonation. I am liking this Florida beer!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft at the brewery, poured a darker brown color, aromas of chocolate, roasted malt, a touch of coffee. Flavors are the same, not the best of this style, but a decent porter none the less, bought some bottles to go.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Charlie’s steakhouse in Kissimmee. The pour is barely brown in color with a thinnish off white head that dissipates quickly, Smells of caramel and a hint of chocolate with enough earthy hops to keep it balanced. Taste follows the aroma. Malty and a bit sweet with caramel dominant and chocolate, earth, and mineral supporting. Medium to thin body with a spirited level of carbonation and a fizzy sweet mouthfeel. It’s kind of light for a porter, but on an 85 degree day in April it worked for me.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
malt profile is thin and grainy with a bit of coffee. possibly, either stretching the malt too far, using a small amount of black-roasted malts rather than a generous amount of dark-roasted malts, or using water not conducive to the style.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Soft ,tantalizing chocolate kiss aroma,seems like its going to be a dreamy Edmond Fitagerald type of porter,taste ,however is a rather harsh black patent type of roastedness,leaving a somewhat bitter aftertaste. These malts are by no means unpleasant,just not quite up to the better porters available,and it seems it would be consumed only by locals.

Bottle. Some bakers chocolate in the aroma, which is mild, along with a dark fruity scent. Dark brown color, thin head, spotty lacing. The flavor consists of chocolate, smokey ash, residual sugar, weak coffee. A little thin in the body. Pretty good.
