3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2016 12 oz bottles (in 2014 & 2016) poured near black with a towering, creamy light brown head.
Feel: creamy and full bodied feel. Soft, medium carbonation.
Rich and relatively complex, with a good suggestion of chocolate and a hint of coffee with the dark roasted malt character. Subtle hints of smoke and black licorice.
O: a robust porter in style, this is also on the new label.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
330 ml bottle fro the beer stroe in Pompano Beach FL. Pours a dark black with a dark tan head. Aroma is complex malt, coco, nuts and hops. Taste is a bit hoppy for style but good. The palate leaves a burnt metal effect but then mellows out to a stale cigar. Overall not bad but not great either in over all or by the style.
