3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (thanks to Daknole)(Iím not the hellbilly he is referring to)... Poured dark brown with a thick beige head. Remind me of a more English style porter. Worty sweet, cocoa, earthy and herbal hops. Low bitterness and thin palate. Oats and grains. Faint roast or toasted characters.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark brown color with a moderate light tan head. Very light aromas with some hints of cocoa, very mild roast malt and bit of herbal hops. Mild and mellow in flavor. Just a some light pale malt and touch of roasted malt. Easy to drink, almost in a water type way. Not sure if this would sustain me during a hard days labor.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rich deep dark brown coloured body with a thick, three centimetre tall pure brown head. Aroma of rich chocolate, roasted malt, lactose, cream and a good dose of caramel and nuts - strong! Medium-bodied; Assertive nutty flavour of hazlenuts, earth, milk, cream, lactose and even some dry grain noticeable. Aftertaste shows some depth with the caramel and sweetness alongside the bitter nutty and malt flavours - not much aside from that, however. Overall, a good porter and one that shows the roasted malt and earthiness expected from the style, but lacks a touch in complexity and depth. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from my coworker, Randy, on 27-October-2015 for US$9,99/six pack from a grocery Store in Great Falls, Montana sampled at home in [the real] Washington on 24-April-2016.

Pours a dark brown with a small tan head and some lacing.
Smell is of cocoa, malt, and a touch of coffee.
Taste is of dry, cocoa, malt, and a little dark fruit. Ends a tad bitter.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not pitch black liquid sitting under a small tannish head of foam.
The nose reveals notes of roasted malt and chocolate. One other thing there; either hints of fruit or something that the hops are creating.
Roasted malt, chocolate, a fruity presence from the hops, a wee bit of coffee. Thereís a month and year on the label for notching but I donít see where itís been marked.
Full flavoured for sure but it is a bit thin on the palate.
Easy drinking Porter because itís smooth and packs a nice taste profile. Thanks Jay for the chance to try it!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweet with sugar like flavor. Malt and darks are present. Thin fadinghead. Not thick and not astringent but a bit of a strange flavor. Is that the pig A** coming through? Still a nice brew I would drink again. Vanilla and sugar with light toast.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A bit too think for my taste. The mouthfeel and underassertive flavor was a bit disappointing. Bottle courtesy of the parents on their drive back from Alberta in 2015.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark brown, standard 90s porter nose, a bit fudgey. Sweetish character, and a touch of chocolate. Old skool - if youíre doing this type of thing you really have to nail it, which this doesnít.
