2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Whatís with all the new brewery stuff on the shelves lately that are so-so at best? Iím thinking this brewery and Prohibition line in particular.
Pours a dark brown with a little bit of a head and some lacing.
Scent is roasted dark fruits and coffee.
Flavor is sour and kind of like peat on top of the caramel/coffee, but itís weak. Both the flavor and the palate are very thin.
Overall, save your money.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2004 Bottle pours dark brown, mediocre sandy colored head, with slight lacing. † Heavy coffee and roasted malt aroma. † Forwardly roasted malts, slight coffee, but it quickly subsides by the finish. † Body and mouthfeel are somewhat thin. † Only wishing this one was more flavorful on the finish. † This one seemed to be more of a Dark Ale crossed with a Porter.   Not bad, but not as heavy for a Porter as I would have liked.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not much aroma. Medium body. Taste is a little roasty, but has a background sourness that kind of puts the beer off. Not much going on.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Red/brown coloring, thin white head around the rim, chocolate/coffee aroma, dry dark chocolate finish, sweet chocolate malts, lightly carbonated, very slight hop flavor in the initial taste, palate is a little thin, but it makes for a smooth swallow, this was the last beer I had out my Hair of Dog tulip that fucking Frankenstein destroyed in a rage last night.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Dark brown, transparent, with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor were dominated by a sickening swampy, moldy character...YUCK! I could detect some roasted, chocolatey tones in there, but I could not shake the feeling that this beer was made with swamp water.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2004 #565 on my beerwall. Pours nice and dark with a small off white head that falls quick. Aroma is filled with chocolate. The beer initially tastes sweet and chocolaty then the hops come in after to back it up. After i was left with a metallic taste in my mouth.
