A great looking beer, with a large light brown head with full lacing. Aroma o f malt, molasses and chocolate. Flavor of chocolate and malt slightly bitter. A short lasting watery, chalky finish.

Sampled at the brewery. It poured a very dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma was of chocolate, dark fruits and sweet malts. The taste was slightly bitter, with roast, chocolate and toffee.

Bottle. This was a bit of a disappointment. Rather on the thin side and definitely watery. You can taste and smell the roasted malts and some chocolate and even a bit of the hops, but nothing really distinguishes themselves. It is a good start, but needs a little more work. Not a bad drink, but somewhat underdeveloped.

Bottle from ross. Pours a dark brown with a tan head. Smells of coffee, oatmeal and some earthy hops. Tastes of some chocolate and coffee but very watery and boring.

Bottle. Quite a thin porter. Some light touches of sweet caramel, light toasty characters and light roasted malt notes. Soft carbonation, with a fairly dry finish.

Pours a very dark brown, damn near black. Surprisingly there are quite a bit of hops in the nose. Taste is slightly bitter hops with some roasted ash as well. Medium on the mouthfeel. Quite an easy drinking beer. Very sessionable, but not overly complex at all.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From bottle. Mild coffee ground and vegetal aroma, with light carbonic gaseousness and some lactose sweetness. Some DMS, as well, and an odd grainy dry dog food smell. Dark black-brown clear with thin off-white head. Medium watery body with medium carbonation. Starts with some good malty sweetness, molasses and some licorice, with mild coffee bitterness and light lactose sweetness. Fairly smooth throughout with a medium roasted bitter finish and mild sweet after. The aroma is just bad, though.

Bottle I think courtesy of hellbilly. Decent oatmeal aroma and normal swetness on the nose. Black body with dark tan head. Flavor was average sweet porter with a mild bitterness and semed to have lost it’s zip. Guess I expected some oatmeal flavor. Thanks.
