3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Roasty aroma with a bit of chocolate. Pours black, not completely opaque, good clarity, huge tan head with great retention, a slug of foam remained throughout the drink. Flavor: mellow roast, very smooth, hints of chocolate and caramel, a good easy drinking porter. I thought the body was a bit on the thin side, very smooth and creamy on the palate though, medium carbonation.

Pours dark brown with a kahki head that fades. Aroma light roasted malt and earthy. Taste is more toasty roasty malt with faint mild coco. Palate is slick and watery which finishes dry. Not bad!

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Dark brown pour with a thin, creamy brown head. Light aroma is dry and roasty with bits of bittersweet cocoa. Roasty overtones dominate the flavor, but there is not much else going on. A little bittersweetness in the tail. A little metallic twang that goes away once it warms a bit. Ok, but nothing noteworthy.
