4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Dark as night. Black beer with cinnamon coloured smallish head and some lacing. Aroma has coffee, roasted malts, syrup and some berries. Taste has roasted malts, vanilla, coffee, some chocolate and fruits. Full body and low carbonation. With just a little bit better aroma this would’ve been near the 5 mark.

Wow, very happy I took a gamble on a single 12oz bottle of this tonight for Labor Day celebration. This porter they concocted is sweet, thick, and malty as hell. "Lil" surprised how sweet this is, but damn if I don’t like it! ABV is very well masked.
