Draught. Pours a near-black color with a moderate light tan head on there. Nose is roasty with a fair amount of chocolate coming off it. Taste is also quite roasty with just a little bit of sweetness coming off it, and some chocolate coming throughout. Nice drink.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Roasted, chocolate, slight coffee nose. Big coffee roasted malt flavor in the initial sip which leads to a sweet almost lactose like sweetness in the middle. Finish is rounded and bitter. Sweetness is slightly cloying and lingers in the afterbreath. Sessionable, mostly sweet, roasted porter which I wouldn’t reach for again.

Roasty coffee aroma and flavor. Not very rich in body but not a bad beer either. Not really anything to write home about.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the brewery. The bartender told me how they were sued by Magic Hat of the name. Apparently having a "9" on the label is too close to #9. Anyway, the new name is still the same beer. A porter that focuses on the chocolate without completely neglecting the roast. I would drink this regularly if it was local and came with an appropriate price-tag.
