3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Full-bodied pour, thick frothy foam topping off a reddish-black brew. The aroma is earthy and reminiscent of a smoky cabin. It drinks with exactly the promised notes of chocolate, coffee and smoke. Flavorful, well done. (#4721, 8/7/2012)

Porter is a style of beer that is drinkable if itís just average or excellent. Lucky 7 delivers the flavors of dark roasted malts and a light bitterness. Greatness eludes this porter.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle split with Anndiesel. Black burgundy, with a foamy beige head. Coffee chocolate aroma, a little odd, pungent. Mild, easing going, respectable enough Porter. Easy doughy chocolate, caramel flavored body. Watery black malt notes, a touch of amber malt in there too maybe. Smooth and sessionable.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice hop presence on this dark porter with ruby edges. Coffee, chicory, toast, a little pine sap and a little syrup. Full and long, but a tiny bit papery on the palate. Nice low alcohol makes this a cool porter.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark color, translucent, and a bit reddish. Aroma is very good, sweet cuban coffee and caramel. Flaovr is a very roasty espresso like burnt character. Lots of ash and bitterness in the flavor. Light though, palate is cool and witha bitter aftertaste.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
No bottling information.
Appearance: The body is a deep chestnut, appearing an opaque black in the glass. The head is short, thin and short lived. The head settles into a very thin ring with almost nothing on the surface.
Aroma: The aroma is a mix of sweet cocoa, hints of roast, fig, and smoke. The aroma has good strength, but I donít enjoy the blend.
Taste: The flavor is of dried figs throughout, very prominent with a touch of roast towards the end with a lightly smoked finish thatís semi-dry with a lingering fig.
Palate: The body is a bit watery in feel, carbonation is light to moderate.
Overall: This porter isnít really doing it for me. Too much fruit for my liking and too watery of a body.

Bottled...not much head, a bit too carbonated for me, but that aside it has a good smoky taste.
