3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
5 oz sample at a tasting. Pours a nice dark brown with small bubbly head. Aroma was baking chocolate, coffee, roast malts, and some vanilla. Flavor follows the nose perfectly and is nicely balanced out. Medium body, slick texture, average carbonation, and a nice bold finish with bitterness from the hops. Solid porter.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Jet black pour, but holding onto light at the bottom of the glass is a deep, ruby red. Creamy, milk-white head with nice lacing. Aromas of burnt coffee, roasted malt, chocolate, caramel and brown sugar. The taste is not as sweet as the nose; coffee, bitter chocolate, and nutty pine, with bitter finish, but has a nice slight sweet after taste as it warms. Creamy, medium-bodied porter with a pleasant mouthfeel. Overall, this is a nice American Porter

I’m not big on porters, but this is definitely one I’d recommend to others. It’s flavorful and it’s not overpowering. It’s kind of scary looking at first, because it pours so dark, but the flavor doesn’t smack you in the mouth. It’s just not a beer to drink in big sips.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The body is shades of sasparilla with a nice tan-browned head. The nose is moderately roasty with nuances of chocolate and coffee. Similarly, the body has a good balance to it and an easygoing roastiness made up of equal parts coffee and chocolate character. A solid porter.
