2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This draft brew from a beer festival poured a head of fine to medium sized tan colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a no visible carbonation semi-opaque brown colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The mild aroma was malty and coffee. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of mild coffee porter. An OK brew just nothing special.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewery, Indy. Dark brown pour but not especially impressive in terms of body and appearance, looking almost like a somewhat hefty brown. Nose of modest roasted malts and a dollop of chocolate, not much in the way of bitterness or complexity. Solid drinking, a bit overly carbonated, and imbalanced towards the sweet end of the spectrum.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle to pint. Looks solid; a semi-transparent amberish brown with thin light beige head that quickly dissipates into lacing. Smells of dark malt with notes of chocolate and roasted coffee. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. Not too complex, but decent nonetheless.

Draft. Deep brown body. Fizzy, beige head, rapidly diminishing. Aroma of roasted malts, milk chocolate, coffee and cream. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, soft carbonation. A very sweet porter that could use a little more hop balance. Raw grain aftertaste with some metallic notes.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma: Moderate roast with some coffee character; a touch of vanilla and underlying chocolate rounds out the nose. Appearance: Color is very dark brown/black with a creamy bone head. Flavor: Primarily coffee roast that tends toward astringency; chocolate and other notes are very muted. Palate: Full body, slick texture, average carbonation, long finish. Overall: Disappointed in how this one turned out, considering the noteworthy nose. Mostly average.
