Reviewed from notes. Thanks to joecaddie for the bottle. Pours dark brown with a light tan head and a bit of lace. Good retention. Nose brings some chocolate a good deal of darker malt. Taste is a bit more plain with some slight chocolate and a bit of semi-roasted malt. Good body and carbonation. Drinks pretty well and is a nice introduction to the brewery.

Bottle pours brown with a tan head. Aroma shows notes of cocoa, coffee, roast, and a touch of ash. Flavor shows the same with additional notes of caramel and plum. Overall body is somewhat thin, but very drinkable.

Lucky 7 Porter pours black. The head fizzles quickly. There is a freshness to the aroma. Itís mildly coffee-like. The brew is bitter and dry. The alcohol is apparent but not that intense. The roasted malt follows through and lingers. Not great in my book, but not terrible either. Drinkable.

Dark brown pour. The nose is slightly herbal with a bit of light chicory character. There is a distinct dusty yeastiness and a little bit of autolysis that I could definitely do without. Meh - itís really not all that great.

Brown pour, light tan head. Aroma of light cocoa, coffee, smoke, and roasted malt. Flavor is smoke, molasses, light espresso, and dark dried fruit.

This was a nice porter that poured black with slight red hue on the head that didnt latst for long. The porter was smooth and the cc&s notes were not overwhelming. I would say there was more chocolate than anything else.

This was my first porter and Evolutionís Lucky 7 Porter was a dark brown with a tan thick head that very briefly masked the aroma. However, very quickly I could smell smoke and a lot of it and a trace amount of wood. There is a definite bitterness to this dry beer, but smoke overwhelmed everything to me. There was good carbonation. It finished a bit astringent and overall was not to my liking, but I will be sure to re-rate this after I have a few more beers in this style.

A: Pours a dark brown color with a sturdy khaki colored head and mild lacing. S: A very strong smoke aroma to this beer. Some good roasted malt notes and maybe a bit of dark, bitter chocolate. Maybe a little bit of a soap in there. The smoke really dominates the nose, though. T: Kind of harsh and slightly astringent. The smoke is again at the forefront and really makes up most of the flavor. A decent roasted malt flavor and just a bit of bitter dark chocolate. M: The body is medium with a moderate carbonation and a drying feeling on the tongue. D: An alright beer, even with its strong smokiness. Donít know if Iíd want to drink a bottle, though.

pours black with a thick tan head...nice retention and lacing. aroma is pleasantly mild with subtle coffee and cocoa...milky...the faintest hint of dark fruit too. flavor is roasty with a bit of caramel and nice coffee notes...a bit of burnt toffee towards the end. mouthfeel is a bit thin for the style but the finish is roasty and lingers nicely. not bad at all.
