2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
I love porters but this beer just does not do it for me. Looks great, smells great, but it has a finish that lingers and it really ruined my palate! It almost has a mint taste finish. Do not recommend ! Really disappointed and this is someone who loves porters and stouts!

A bottle I picked up at Craft Beer Base & brought to share at the Kyoto Craft Beer Fest. It pours a dark brown with a tan head. A nice chocolaty solid porter, sweet & malty with hints of chocolate and roast bitterness.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Sugary sweet nose, caramel, very herbal, cocoa, coffee, way to sweet and a odd flavor that really ruins the beer for me.

Bottle from Scott. Aroma and flavor of molasses, semi-sweet chocolate, and some fudge. Taste profile blew the palate out of the water, as it was fairly bright and rough around the edges. Carb was good. Very nice, rich beer.

Great Porter. Really well balanced, hugely drinkable and the roasty finish is so well integrated in to the package it comes off as one well rounded product in the mouth. Nice heavy, though well weighted body too. This is what good beer is all about - no need for huge ABVs and off kilter ingredients. Just good, honest beer values.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice dark roast malt and coffee nose, but a bit flat. Coffee brown color. Flavor also seems flat and mostly light roast coffee. Good but not great. Doesn’t hit all the right porter spots for me. Maybe fatigued palate after tasters of their IPAs at Hops and Pie’s tap takover? Will need to try again if I get a chance.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Hops and Pie poured a clear dark reddish brown with a small lasting tan head. Aromas of milk chocolate, dark fruit, vanilla and light earthiness. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of dark chocolate, coffee, roastiness and light vanilla with a smooth dry lingering roasty finish.
