3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A bit of toastiness in the aroma, but not huge. Fluffy tan head, which fell in the time between the kitchen and living room. Flavors of cocoa black licorice. Coffee bitterness lingering on the palate. Light body for a porter. Not a bad brew, and not overly expensive for an "exotic" beer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black with a thin brown head. The aroma is malt, smoke, and sour coffee. Flavor is moderately bitter, and very nice. I normally love dark ales, but the sour aroma turned me off a bit. Still, this isn’t bad at all.

The aroma is toasted and smokey with molasses and coffee. The appearance is dark brown with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is a bit thin. Overall a very good one.
