3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours reddish brown with a tan bubbly head. The aroma has cocoa, cream, chocolate malt, caramel, butterscotch and a hint of vanilla. It has a medium / light body with a light amount of semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor begins with a bit of a watered flavor of the aroma. It is sharper and drier and has a dark chocolate note. The finish shows some mineral notes. Good porter.

Black pour with a tall, mocha head.
Aroma of cocoa powder.
The flavor follows the aroma. A bit of sweetness but not overly so, very little bitterness.
A bit thin but otherwise a nice beer.
