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.

12 oz bottle, pours a black color with some light passing through, little head. Aroma is very chocolatey with hints of roastiness. Taste is sweet and of chocolate with some fruitiness present. Palate is smooth and body is full. Average porter but overall good beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle, bottled on February 10, 2010. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours a dark brown/red color with a half inch off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both decent. Aroma is roasted and bready malt, chocolate, coffee, and a bit of citrusy hops. The taste is same as the aroma, itís all roasted and bready malt, chocolate, coffee, and citrus hops. Surprisingly, the hops are more noticable than I thought they would be. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium. It has moderate carbonation, but I think itís a bit thin for a porter. Drinkability is good, itís smooth and goes down easy. I think this is a decent overall brew, I liked it.
