3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours black with a hint of brown. Small head, minimal carbonation. Aroma of roasted dark chocolate coffee grinds. Rich taste with coffee upfront melting into dark chocolate and milk mixed with more coffee. Brewed according in compliance with the German beer purity laws per bottle. Goes well with Gordon Lightfoot, you know which song.

Cocoa roasted malt aroma and flavor. Full bodied with a dry finish. Smooth Porter. Bit of a lactose smoothness. Pretty enjoyable and well done Porter

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Easy drinking porter. A little to light for my liking. More hops than I’m used to in a porter. Solid flavor though with a dry finish. Decent but not amongst my favorites.

Smooth, dark, coffee-chocolate taste...there is nothing I don't love about this beer. It goes with everything, and light enough to drink any time of year.

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.

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

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.
