3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Entering an old rating, 12 ounce bottle poured a dark brown color, aromas of light chocolate, light caramel, and a touch of earth. Flavors are the same, a little thin for a porter, but decent beer overall.

12oz bottle. Clear, medium brown color. Aroma of roasted grain, some chocolate. Smells like extract. Watery texture. Finishes with a burnt grain flavor. Boring.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle, part of the 15 beer variety pack I picked up at Total Wine in Jacksonville. Beer is a dark brown with a light tan head. Aroma is a bit of cocoa and a touch of malt. Taste is identical to the aroma, with a bit of hops bite. Nice beer, but a bit rich to drink. Good for dessert.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark caramel brown color with a crimson tint. A compact, spongy tan head settles slowly, leaving nice ribbons of lacing behind. The aroma leans heavily towards the chocolaty side, resembling something like an old school malted milkshake. Caramel and mocha are detectable as well. Flavors continue this theme, with chocolate and caramel malts showing well. The coffee component, combined with a hint of earthy hops, lends some balance. Falling short on mouthfeel, it is well carbonated but a touch thin for the style. Overall, I found this to be a surprisingly nice, enjoyable, "summertime" porter.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle courtesy Degarth. Pours a clear brown amber with a small light tan head. Looks like a Brown Ale. Aroma of light roasted malt and caramel. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium mouthfeel with a mild amount of bitterness. Good.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Courtesy of Degarth. Pours clear amber with tan head. Doesnít look as dark as most porters Iíve tried. The aroma is roasted malts, molasses, mild caramelization and no real sign of even faint burnt malts. The taste is mildly roasty with some just as mild burnt malts, faint earthiness, some kettle caramelization and notes of grainy malts. Pretty nice but not much of a porter influence as I think a porter would taste like, in my opinion.

355ml bottle shared with JesseM, RyanMac13, beerguyrayn. my bottle. pours brown ale brown with red licorice aromas. lots of sweet aromas but all the sweetness is a little disturbing. thin flavour profile with atificial sweetness after every sip. no detectable hops. im glad we started with this one cause it wound have been even more dissapointing later on.

1.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
12 oz. bottle shared with Matt7215, RyanMac13, and Beerguyryan. Pours a translucent brown, aroma is decent, grainy, maybe some chocolate. The taste is pretty much a disaster. Nothing really porter-like about this one, itís more of a poorly made brown ale. No hop bitterness, and thereís this weird dog-breath flavour in the finish/aftertaste. Yuck! But thanks for sharing Matt.
