2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle - pours jet black with so much foam that I had to wait to pour the rest in the glass. I did detect a a chocolate and smoke flavor but for the most part this brew just wasn’t all that appealing. The mouthfeel seemed really thin as well. Drinkable but it won’t be on my want list again.

Has a faint smoke aroma. Has a nice bit of a chocolate taste. Has a creamy nice body. Not bad.

Draft at Spacebar. Black with bare lite tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, lite coffee, ash. Taste is similar, with hint of chocolate. Thin, bit watery. Good enough to drink a couple, but not to seek out.

First impressions: rather light for a porter, not as complex as hoped for. However, as it warms a bit and I keep sipping, it's flavors grow, but not to where I'd expect from a 7 malt beer. I detect hints of coffee, a little chocolate, and very subtle smoke on the tongue but surprisingly not on the nose. Overall, a decent porter but less than I'd hoped for.

Pours a nice black color, but has no lacing or head retention. I expected it to smell more of chocolate and burnt coffee, but those are barely present. It is more bitter than most porters I have had. Reminds me more of a black ipa than a porter.

This is an OK porter....slightly above average but nothing really special here. There’s some roasty coffee and chocolate flavors, though the texture and balance could be a little better. Evolution just made it down here to FL. My first sample from them, so I’ll give one of their other styles a try.

Sharp bitter chocolate and a lot of grain but only a little roast aroma. Pours black withouy much head. Light bitter finish. Bottle at right proper.

Weak aroma (could be the glass). Deep coffee color, clear. Hints of coffee and chocolate. Hop bitterness shows up at the end and lingers a bit long.
