2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Pours dark black, medium tan head, dissipates pretty quickly with some residual and lacing. Aroma is coffee, heavy roasted malts, molasses. Flavor is odd, light sweet with a sickly note to it, not pleasant. Coffee and lemon juice, molasses left in the sun, super burned malts soaked in water. Acrid and somewhat tart. Light sweet, light plus bitter. Medium body. Infection city? Mine was not a gusher like Travlr’s bottle, but still a big time Nope.

Massive aggressive gusher. Opaque cloudy brown color, massive beige head that continues to rise over the top of the glass. Aroma of cafe au lait and chocolate bars. Taste is sour chocolate, aggressive bubbly mouthfeel I got an evil bottle, apparently. Beautiful aroma, but undrinkable.

Did a full flight at Helm’s tasting room. This was their most bold beer of the day. Easy to explain. Lots of coffee. It was still light bodied to go down easy.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
650 ml. looks to have been bottled 06/30/2015. Opaque inky black with a touch of ruby and a thin disc of cream on top. Really nice looking brew. Nose is dark chocolate, espresso and vanilla cream. Taste is the same. Long finish sweeps away the richness with some spicy herb and a dose of charred wood that also brings a hint of smoke. Medium body has an awesome balance and a smooth low-medium carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Eastbound. Pours very dark with a decent head. Aromas were very chocolate and coffee. Less so on the flavor. I think maybe I kept thinking stout but this is a porter.... but even so it was decent while not amazing.
