3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottled November 1, 2011. Served at around 55F.
Pours dark brown to black with a two finger brown head that leaves spotty lacing and holds a small creamy cap.
Aroma is roasted premium coffee, milk chocolate, roasted malts, straightforward, but good...especially the coffee.
Flavor is coffee, chocolate, roasted malts, some caramel & bread, some acidity and bitterness but there is some underlying sweetness not unlike a sweet stout. Minimal to no alcohol.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, a little creamy with good carbonation.
Very tasty coffee brew. The coffee comes through best in the aroma but still is pretty front and center in the flavor as well.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Black with a small tan head. Not expecting this dark of a beer. Aroma is coffee and chocolate. Pretty thin bodied. Taste is chocolate and not much else. Some roast malt gives this a slight coffee character. Maybe if it was 5 degrees out Iíd like this more, but it just isnít doing it for me at the moment.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very dark, almost black beer with a tan head. Very strong aromas of dark coffee. The taste follows the nose quite closely. Tastes of bitter dark coffee, a bit nutty, and has some lactic flavoring. Chalky, dry mouth feel. Bitter coffee finish. This was a sipper, I found the bitter flavors to be a bit overpowering, could have done with some more sweet. Still a tasty porter.

Pours dark brown with a good sized, creamy head. Strong aromas of coffee and chocolate. Bitter chocolate flavor works well with the roasted malts, making a solid porter.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a nearly opaque dark brown color with a dark reddish-tan head. Coffee on milk chocolate aromas. A little thin for the style. Micropinching carbonation scrub starting midway. Smoky olive, fruity, coffee, and faint dark chocolate flavors. Pretty acidic.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours jet black with an off white head. Aroma is coffee and roasted malt. Silky smooth mouthfeel with a well balanced dark malt flavor from start to finish. Just the right amount of carbonation and alcohol.to make this a superb porter. Well done. Would pair well with a frozen desert or ice cream.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Barely translucent dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of coffee grounds and piney hops. Taste is dry, with a bitter hop and coffee grounds finish. Just not into coffee-grindy coffee beers.
