3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark brown/black with a medium tan head. Aroma has some chalky cocoa, light roastiness, and very mild dark fruit. Flavor has roasty malts, a hint of peat, and some tea notes...odd and very faint shellfish note. Mouthfeel is medium and silky and the finish is roasty/faintly peaty and mildly burnt.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a very dark brown with faint hues of red and very little head. A little light on the nose with typical porter scents of coffee and chocolate. The taste of smokey malts starts this brew out but that taste quickly fades to a dryness in the end. Not a bad porter.

Good strong porter. I thoroughly enjoyed this brew. I heard great divide will no longer be distributing beer where I live. Bummer they will be missed.

A - Pours a fairly dark brown-black color wit ha finger of frothy tan head atop. The head fades slowly down to a thick ring leaving behind some nice lacing.
S - Aroma is a mix of roasted caramel and coffee and some sweet chocolate. There is even some noticeable hops in the background.
T - Starts off with lots of roasted coffee and caramel flavor with a bit of hop in the background. Bit of wood as well. Through the middle, some chocolate flavor and stronger roasted flavors come through. The finish is a mix of coffee and dark chocolate that lingers for a while.
M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall smooth and even a bit creamy. The roasted flavors really fill the mouth nicely and the coffee flavor that lingers is very pleasant.
D - Very drinkable. The coffee and chocolate flavors mix together very nicely. The hop addition is also mixes in really well.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The beer pours a light black, showing brown in the light, with a very disappointing light tan head. It raises maybe half a finger but is gone quickly leaving a disappointing light soapy film.
The aroma is pretty subtle, I’d like it to be a little more assertive. What presents itself is mostly coffee a total one noter, sadly.
The taste is ALL COFFEE, where’d that come from. Way to much coffee and nothing else. I’m can’t believe this isn’t a coffee stout. Boring and no complexity.
The feel is great, totally coasting and lasting.

Thanks bro! Pours silky brown with a creamy tan head. Aroma of oats and funk, with some molasses. Roasted oatmeal taste that fades into coffee and bitter chocolate. Mellow and slightly carbonated, with a lighter body. Great aroma, but the taste is lacking intensity and body. Could be great with a little work.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a clear, deep red/brown with an off-white/beige head. Sweet aroma; roasted, remote hops, chocolate and slight creamy and spicy notes. A bit cloying. Sweetish and a bit tart flavour. Roasted and chocolate notes. Finish is dry with some mild smoked notes and a mild bitterness as well. Lingering grassy and apple notes. Overall decent, but doesn’t really do anything for me. Also, too cloying for my liking. 04.12.10.
