3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ Whole Foods. Smelled really rich and full-bodied, with a mocha coffee aroma. Too much coffee flavor for me. It’s highly rated but most people enjoy the smell & taste of coffee...though i am not one of them.

Mine was 1 year old, so not much nose, slightly chocolate scented. The color is rich dark black, with caramel head. Head recedes within minutes but leaves a small ring around the edge of your glass. The taste is incredile rich chocolate and coffee, roasty goodness. The palate enjoys the beer as it is smooth and silky like melted butter, very enjoyable and drinkable.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap poured into a shaker. It has aromas of coffee, chocolate, and a light toast quality. The beer is a dark, opaque, black-brown color with a dark tan, fluffy, soapy head which retains really really well. It leaves lots of sheet and speckled lace. The taste is a medium sweet and a medium / medium-light bitter. It has a light, foamy carbonation with a light texture, and a medium malty body. It’s smooth and buttery with flavors of chocolate syrup, spice, and grass. It finishes with a sticky syrupy chocolate that lingers in the aftertaste too.

Bottle. Nice roasty nose. Black, opaque color, with dark tan head that slowly dissipates, and leaves a little lacing. Taste is roast, malt, and a very nicely balanced bitterness. Full bodied. Absolutely delicious beer!

Chocolate and toast aromas. Small brown head dissapates quickly on top of a thick black pour. Delicious. Bottle pour into shaker, started too cold, got better as it warmed.

What a great porter. Really wonderful aroma of biscuit and caramel and slight burnt roast. Taste develops from a rich roast to a smooth finish. Love it!!!
