Bottle pour. Aromas and appearance of a stout. Tastes of caramel chocolate coffee and roasted malt. Label makes sense with the stout-ish porter.

12 oz into a snifter,pours black ,average creamy medium brown lasting head, with good lacing.Heavy roasted /burnt malt nose with average hop. Medium body, thin creamy texture, average carbonation, with a lasting bitter finish.A good brew but the over the top burnt detracts from the over all beer.

Deep brown color, mild tan head. Nutty, savory, touch of vanilla sweetness. Quite bitter upfront, some sweetness sneaking in later. Heavier body, alcohol is present but disguised by some of the bitterness. Incredibly long and lingering aftertaste. Quite interesting, very good.

12oz bottle 4/6/14 (Binny’s Downers Grove Mix A Six)-40° in Shaker-Pours black with a big brown head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, and malt. Taste of the same with more chocolate and slight bitterness. This medium bodied brew is well balanced and goes down smooth. Great brew.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Purchased at Bottles and Cans in Chicago, IL; enjoyed on the first night of April after a long winter. Appearance is a creamy pitch black with a rich off white head that laces to the glass. Aroma of chocolate malt, biscuit, light coffee, not too potent. Taste is very nice, lightly bitter, dark chocolate notes, definitely a middle ground between stout and porter.
