3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle... Pours dark and sits just about black in my glass with a small, creamy, khaki head. Fantastic retention. Watery, chocolaty aroma offers modest notes of roasted nuts. Medium-bodied and very creamy with soft carbonation. The flavor provides some nice chocolate and coffee notes, but is thin and fairly bland. Leans barely on the sweet side of balance - and that’s at beach temperature, 15° more than room temperature. Lengthy, chocolaty, lightly bittersweet finish. Bottle provided by otakuden!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Pours a clear black with a reddish hue, pale tan head doesn’t stick around, but this beer leaves decent lacing on your glass. Nose is gentle woodsmoke, dark malt, roasted malt, and fruit. Flavors of roast, creamy coffee, and fruit. Nice broad, dry palate. Maybe a shade thin, but overall still quite good.

Bottle. Bozeman, MT. Small malty aroma. Dark brown w diminishing beige head. Malty balanced bitterness. Some coffee/chocolate notes. I get a subtle sour, slightly fishy tang at the end. Curious. Nice mild porter.

On draft in Billings. How can you see a name like this and not try it? Nothing really to say that isn’t in the "classic" porter description. For what it’s worth, it is a decent beer...fairly roasty, drinkable, and satisfying.
