4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle brought to Tim/Bills for Alenís birthday tasting. Split with 5-6 heads. Pours a pitch black with small coffee head. Aromas and flavor of wood, mollases, perfect amt of roast, earth and light vanilla. One of the most balanced and drinkable porters I have had to date. Medium to fuller bodied. Another winner from Seany Hill.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is one of the best porters Iíve ever had. The mouthfeel is so full and smooth that it makes you think that it almost makes you think youíre drinking a cream soda, which is really nicely amplified by the vanilla. The coffee and roasted malts play together well, and it makes for a rich, full, delightful porter -- another knockout from HF.

This beer pours a dark brown color with a medium foamy beige head that diminishes gradually to a film. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted coffee, malt and vanilla. Medium body with flavors of espresso, roast malt, vanilla and dark chocolate. The finish is roasty with a coffee and malt aftertaste. Solid beer all around.
