The aroma is less than what is expected for the quality. I would like a darker hue for what can be considered an imperial. Taste is balanced and clean. Very pleasant to the palate. Overall a nice brew.

Bottle pour. A little chocolate Porter tonight! A really good chocolate aroma and subtle chocolate and coffee taste! Solid brew.

22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours very dark brown with a lacy, light beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, some light smoky/coffee notes, chocolate, a little dough, and some light bitterness. Flavor the same. Average texture. A pretty good beer.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Wonderful smell – like deep deep dark chocolate. I could spend all day smelling this. Pours clear reddish brown, looks a little thin. A little bit on the bitter side, could do with some sweetness, but it goes well with the dark chocolate smell. Feels a little thin on the tongue, no significant carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thin brown with lots of aroma and flavor but the thin character takes away from it. Flavor is a lot of cocoa and vanilla. Too much really. Some licorice and coffee. Alittle dusty and dry. Didn’t really get any banana talked about in the description.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a thin looking brown with an almost white head that fades to a ring pretty fast. Aromas of chocolate (obviously) but also some nice cigarette butt elements. Pretty chitl. I do love me some cigarette butt taste in my porters, although I prefer them to be in Baltic Porters, they work quite well here as well. Finishes slightly sweet with a dusting of cocoa powder. Nice.

Thanks for bringing this one, OmegaX. I liked how balanced the chocolate was in this porter; there was a genuine chocolate aroma and flavor all around traditional earthy flavors. Finished dry with vanilla and a touch of coffee. Cheers!

Bottle into snifter. Aroma is big chocolate, earthy, roasted notes, light vanilla. Creamy mouth feel. Flavors are similar. Cocoa, dark chocolate, roast and some vanilla. Good stuff.
