3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle: Pours a dark, chestnut brow, almost black. Little tan head dissipates quickly. Aroma of roasted malts, grassy hops, slight smokey vanilla and licorice. Taste is a big malt profile with a hint of almost burned coffee beans thrown in. Cocoa, slight spruce hop finish. Sweet on the front and slightly bitter on the finish. Slick on the palate, slides down easy. Pretty good.

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.

some acrid smoke a touch of caramel and plastic. after some time a juicy citrus fruity plastic seems evident. more time produces the disjointed different grains. perhaps infected. body on the lighter side of moderate and foam is caustic and weak.

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Am I drinking a chocolate cigarette? I like it. Rich thick dark burnt caramel tones. Cabin in the woods with a dog fire and a hand log.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep dark brown coloured body with a super thick, five centimetre tall light brown head. Aroma of nuts, earth, caramel and a bit of funk - cardboard, too. Light to Medium-bodied; Very earthy, roasty malt flavours with a caramelised sugar flavour, some light peat, and even a bit of metal noticeable. Aftertaste is quite strong with deeply roasted malt, some nuts, burnt sugars and a lot of bitterness at the end. Overall, a strong and relatively robust porter with some good complexity and nice depth. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Chevy Chase Wine & Liqours in Washington, DC on 28-October-2011 for US$2.29 sampled at home in Washington on 07-October-2012.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark with minimal, quickly dissipating head. Looks like a porter. Nothing overwhelmingly bad about the appearance but it as it should be. Same for aroma. Roasty, hints of chocolate. Tastes pretty good with dry, choclately aftertaste but nothing outstanding. A good beer but probably would not preferentially seek it out.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz bottle from a 6pack purchased in Rehobeth. Poured with the tell tale sign if an infection, 90% big beige foamy head and 10% super dark chocolate brown. Aroma of used band-aids, cola, hint of soy sauce, dusty chocolate, dark rotting cherries. The body is super fizzy, sort of like seltzer on steroids, medium density and the aftertaste is all carbonation fizz. Flavor held in there for now and seems to be brown bread, chocolate, hint of lemon citrus. Three sips for a tick and the rest down the drain, won’t be buying any EVolution 6packs anytime soon.
