3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle pours a reddish black color with a finger of off-white head that leaves some sporadic lacing on the glass. Aroma is roasted grains with hints of chocolate and mild floral hops. Taste is light chocolate and malt sweetness with some roasty bitterness balanced together nicely with a mild hoppy bitterness in the finish. Body is a little thin for the style and carbonation is soft. Overall, a pretty decent brew.

Dark body with a thick beige head. Smoke and roasted aromatics. Thin and a bit watery while also smoky therefore not offering much pleasure. Just ok.

Had on draft, came muddy dark brown, aroma a little sweet and malty. Flavor is mild for a porter, chocolate, slighty malty. Nothing stands out with this one.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a very dark blackish mahogany with a fair sized light brown head. Nose of chocolate, molasses and malt. Creamy on the palate but with a little thinner viscosity than most premium porters. Taste is malt, chocolate, coffee, molasses with a little hoppy bitterness on the finish. A good porter but not quite top tier. Pairs well with dark meats such as goose or duck.

A nice, tame, interesting take on the London Porter from a Montana Brewery. It’s not my favorite, but I am very happy to be enjoying it.

It poured a deep brown color with a beige head. The aroma was a blend of roast and some chocolate. The flavor was roasty and had a strong hoppy taste. Not bad.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Poured clear, medium garnety-brown with a tall, fluffy khaki head. The aroma picked up sweet, burnt black malts first and foremost.. hard to place.. some molasses, chocolate, and vanilla present.. brown sugar and ash too.. charred roast accents.. I didn’t like it at first, but it grew on me. The flavor found burnt, lightly smoked black malts at the core, with ashy roast rolling outward.. some sourness on the back-end, giving the expected London porter feel.. the malts never really popped, though. Light-medium bodied and very roasty/burnt on the palate.. the transition to sourness across the middle was well done.. still not greatly enjoyable or interesting.
