Great aroma of dark cocoa and coffee. However, taste is rather average for a porter. Mouthfeel is a bit thin and watery. Strong bitter aftertaste. Disappointing after the great aroma. Can.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark brown coloured body with a bit of a clear brown glow and a decent, two centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of earth, light nuts, malt, peanut butter and a bit of caramel and unfinished sugars. Medium-bodied; Malty flavour at first with a hint of peanuts, some light earth and some cardboardie flavours that finish with some definite breadiness and touches of yeast. Aftertaste has more of the same with the malt hitting first, then some subdued earth notes and finally a bit of unfinished sugars and yeast. Overall, a decent beer - showing some good qualities, but overall, about average. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Charleston Beer Exchange in Charleston, South Carolina on 19-April-2015 for US$1,79 sampled at home in Washington on 05-May-2016.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can. Pours dark chocolate brown with a thick and persistent tan head. Aroma delivers anemic but still tempting roast malt, chocolate and caramel tones. Flavor is definitely bolder, presenting chocolate, roast malt, caramel and molasses tones. Mouthfeel presents firm body and good fizz. Get pluff, but if you get too muddy, please contact Lyft or Uber.

On draught at the brewery. Pours a medium brown, with a moderate khaki head. Nose is roasted malt, and the taste follows. Classic porter flavor of dark roast malt followed by just the right amount of hop bitterness on the finish. True to style, and quite tasty.
