3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
For breakfast have roasted chocolate oatmeal with dark roast coffee, or have this beer as it smells the same. Brown to black appearance, indistinct. Classic porter flavor: burnt barley and blunted bitter hopping. Comes off a percent stronger than it is. On the weak side, the body could be thicker and richer, it’s a dry out too. Best beer from this outfit though.

12 oz. can. Pours black with a moderate tan head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. Pleasant aroma of mild roast with a hint of chocolate. The flavor is mild roasted malt again with a bit of chocolate. Mild bitterness at the finish. Medium bodied. Straightforward porter with no problems.

Beauty of a dark beast. Looks like it’s going to be heavy and it turns out to have this spike in the flavor

Can. Poured into a goblet glass. Dark brown almost black pour with a dark tan head that leaves a small amount of lacing. This was the third Foolproof I have tried and the only one so far that is actually half decent. It’s a straight forward porter, a bit on the thin side but no off flavors and quite drinkable. Roasted malt flavors without too much sweetness and a nice bitterness.

12oz can in an English pint. Pours near black with a small, tan head. Aroma of chocolate and lightly roasted malts, some floral hops, and light dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not bad but not great.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Purchased at Craft Beer Cellar in Belmont, MA; enjoyed at home after getting back from vacation, preparing for the impending work week. Appearance is ptich black, moderate to thin consistency, with a great tan head that laces to the glass. Aroma is rich in roasted chocolate malt, light coffee, as well as light hop bitterness, smells wonderful. Taste goes down with a nice roasted dryness, chocolate notes, light coffee bitterness. This is a pretty straightforward porter, but it’s done pretty well, very good stuff.
