2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Big tuff beer. Pour is nice and dark, almost brown near black. Taste is roasty dark beer enjoyment. could have a few more manners but comes across rather nicely. Yes, seems like a higher alky stout. Not bad overall, a medium fine beer drinken experience. Ceramy at times. Some roasted bitterness on the finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Roasted and chocolate, with a rounded and full flavor profile that ends in an oddly bitter and somewhat disappointing finish. Moderate porter palate, in part to be expected. Bottle.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
22oz bomber from EZ. poured a thinner black body under a large bubbly super light beige head. Aroma of chocolate milk lite, lactose, chocolate, grains and dust. Body is thinner and the carboantion is on the strong side with a quick fading aftertaste. Flavor is the same as the aroma with a touch more roastiness then the aroma. Decent beer but not in love with the palate on this one.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz bottle. Almost completely opaque dark red color, minimal light tan head. Mild hop, some chocolate aroma. Mostly a bit watered down, it seems. Carbonation is prominent. Very light sweetness. Light bitter. Kind of a boring porter.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
pitch black with large white head. nose of chocolate and some crystal malt. solid bitterness before high crystal and chocolate malt with a bit of an astringent character. some yeast esters before a dry finish without much residual sweetness. a flavorful porter, somewhere between a brown and a robust, but the malt recipe results in a stinging malt character that makes repeated drinking challening
