On tap as part of a flight at Five50 in LV. Pours walnut with mocha head. Plenty of lacing. Aroma is strong with heavy roasted chocolate malt. Similar taste, a touch of sweetness and a touch of bitterness. Body is slightly fuller than most porters with a nice creamy character. This is a really nice beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark mahogany pour with a tightly packed latte heard. Subtle cocoa, Nestle Quik aroma. Dark bitter chocolate, vanilla, and roasted malt. Medium mouthfeel. I get that the ABV is slightly higher than traditional beers in this style but have a hard time finding the imperial or strong in this porter.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a near black color with a small tan head on it. Nose is very dry and roasty with just a hint at some sourness, and reminds me of a dry stout. Taste is similar with a sour and bitter tone to it. Feels smooth, but it’s a little off putting. I got no chocolate in here.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Overall, a decent porter. Pours a deep red brown with a tan head. Not much smell, a bit of cream and chocolate. Taste is light, sweet, with some creaminess and peanut butter. Some bitter chocolate in the finish. Had in the bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had this at a recent tasting. This is a forgettable porter. I remember so little about it I had to recheck whether I even drank it.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber to pint glass. Medium brown with a tan head. Weak aroma, roasty with a metallic tinge. Flavor is really nice though. Milk chocolate and marshmallow notes meld with fresh zesty coffee and a light drying roastiness. Overall sweet but nice. No alcohol presence. Silky mouthfeel that turns a bit more syrupy with warmth but not in a bad way. Nice beer.
