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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz Bottle. Charred and roast malt aroma. Straightforward. Cocoa and coffee meet ashiness and some strange, roving citrus qualities (the hops?). There’s a glassy, filtered-feeling quality to the body that leaves this a little thin and cola and soda-like. The roast ashiness is definitely out of balance and needs some malt texture to support it. Otherwise, no major off-flavors. The better of the three initial releases from Foolproof.
