A delicious porter. Aroma of the candy Rollos. Milk chocolate and caramel. Pour was a nice deep dark brown with a thin tan film for a head. Taste was very full for a 6.2% beer. Deep rich chocolate and caramel are the big flavors with a sweet milky finish. Light on the palate but full of flavor. Nice carbonation rounds this beer out.

Thanks to Strykzone for sending me this bottle. Pours an opaque dark brown with a good sized beige head and lots of lacing rings. Nose is of chocolate roasted malts. Fairly bold body and a smooth creamy mouth feel. Flavor is chocolate first, then coffee. Nice drinking and tasty.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown, almost black beer, with a tan head. Strong aromas of dark chocolate and coffee. Tastes of bitter dark chocolates, some burnt notes, some toasted dough, and dark coffee. Finish is of bitter chocolate. Not much to it, one dimensional but good. Powerful for a porter, this is more of a stout.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The beer’s description pretty much sums it up... Dark blackish brown. Medium to large frothy light brown head, lasting. Aroma is milk chocolate, roasty, and a sort of earthy dustiness, slightly sweet. Medium body, thin, clean silky mouthfeel. Roasty, toasty, coffee in flavor. Dry bitterness. Roasty coffee finish.

aroma-roasty, chocolate, malt, oatmeal.
Taste is a lot thinner than I thought it would be, I guess it’s like silk! A little malty, chocolate, a little toffee coffee.
