(12oz bottled on Dec 2 2009) clear medium brown, oily light tan head, and excellent lacing of the glass. Nose of sweet chocolate, nuts, brown sugar and subtle vanilla. Smells pretty good actually. Taste of roasted nuts, dark chocolate, cream, oily medium-light body that’s moderately refreshing and quite creamy.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours nearly solid black, big frothy light tan head. Aroma of roasted caramel and chocolate malts. Taste is sweet with caramel again and some floral hops, followed by a slight burnt bitterness. Medium body, smooth carbonation. Very flavorful for a Porter, seems more like a sweet stout.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Dark brown in color, off-white head. Coffee aroma and roasted barley. A little chocolate malt. The body is light and softly carbonated. Long-lasting finish. The taste is lightly sweet upfront, but finishes with a coffee and roasted bitterness. The body is too weak and the coffee bitterness in the end is harsh. Barely tolerable.
