A lot going on in this complex, satisfying porter. Everything comes together in this big porter.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a dark brown. Consistency is thin, slightly oily with very thin head and some lacing. The aroma is somewhat sweet and pleasant. There is some carbonation and a slight bitter aftertaste. I did not like this very much. It was too light for a Porter and the bitterness was not very enjoyable.

One of my favorites. Great flavor yet still smooth enough to drink all day. I recommend it.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep brown with minimal head. Aroma is sweet. Toasted malt with hints of caramel and toffee. Toasted malt flavor leads before the coffee and chocolate come in. Nice dry, dark chocolate finish with a clear hop presence. Very good.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Roasted coffee and chocolate billow out from the pour. Dark carbonated light lacing with toasty finish. Was looking for a nice sweet finish but was suprised with a toffee dryness. Good offering but just was hoping for a photo finish.
