2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz btl. Pours a really dark brown with a nice tan head. Not too strong of nose but the usual sweet, dark malty smells arise. Mouthfeel is medium with light carbonation. Taste is of mild toasty amlt, some sweetness, with a little alcohol on the end. The finish is short and sweet. Not bad. Hoping it was better but its hard to give a dark beer a bad rating.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Una discesa nella mediocrità per Flying Dog con questa porter senza tratti caratteristici: caffettosa, con note di mati tostati, una sfumatura di cioccolato e un leggero tocco amaro nel finale. Piacevole, certo, ma incapace di affermare la sua personalità.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: deep brown pour, some faint clarity near the edges with a khaki colored head that recedes quickly. Aroma is somewhat mild, with notes of light chocolate malt, roast, caramel, & light prune. Taste is a touch watered down with stronger licorice flavors; anise, roast, caramel, notable malt finish with a touch of bitterness, bother from the roast & some moderate hopping. Far from the best in the style, but easy to choke down.

Decent porter, but not much more. Has the characteristics of a classic porter, but does not rise above mediocrity.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Gentle metal and aged malt on the nose; this isn’t as fresh as would be ideal. Looks great though; a rich, consistent, coffee brown color and an appreciably thick cream head. Despite a dilapidated aroma, the flavor is great, albeit definitively mellow. A porter, cut and dry.
