3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 ounce bottle. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a mostly clear dark brown/reddish color with about a half inch light tan head. The head didnít stay around for too long, and there isnít much lacing. The brew smells like roasted/caramel malt, nuts, and a bit of chocolate. Taste is the same as the aroma, it tastes like roasted and caramel malt, nuts, and some chocolate. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, itís a bit slick, and itís smooth and easy to drink. To me it seems more like a brown ale than a porter. Overall, itís not a bad brew, just decent. Canít complain since I bought only a single of this. Worth a try!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear dark amber with a light tan head and swirls of lace. Taste is an easy-drinking caramel malt with edgy carbonation. This is a good, common, outdoor BBQ beer, or maybe for hot dogs and potato salad. Much more than the natíl brands, but nowhere near the good crafy brewers. It is successful in what it intends to be.

Bottle. Nutty roasted malt aroma. Deep chestnut with a moderate beige head. Nutty caramel malt flavor with a roasty finish. Light body, moderate carbonation. Reminds more of a nice brown ale than a porter.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours deep, clear ruby-brown with a large, whipped tan head.
Caramel and chocolate aroma.
Taste is strong, sweet malt, light chocolate.
Some fruitiness...almost a pear note.
Very light, but a really nice taste and feel.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pint on tap at Mayberry gastropub. clear reddish brown color. Very light compared to how your typical American craft porter looks. Thin off-white greyish head, nice chocolate nose. Lighter body. Smooth lighter carbonation, dry texture. Sort of toasty. Nice light bitter taste. A macro-tasting porter, light and watery. But that light chocolate note is pretty pleasant

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle to pint. Looks solid; a transparent brown with light beige head that quickly dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes semi-sweet and malty. Average on the palate. It exceeded my expectations.
