3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750mL c&c thanks to Ed5388! Inky pour generates a healthy, beige coffee head. Huge retention. Big lace. Nose is sweeter, some esters, phenols, somewhat chemical with lots of volatiles. Eventually gets some sweet apple. Taste is sweet, lots of grape soda. Palate is chalky, powdery. Finishes a bit lemon acid tart from the coffee.

[Tap @ dmacís] Nearly opaque black with a medium sized, tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, nuts, coffee, and chocolate. Taste of coffee, roasted malts, lactose, cocoa, and a sweeter finish.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared at Paulís Housewarming Tasting 2013. Pours a deep, dark brown body with nice tan head and lacing. Aroma is rich chocolate, cocoa, delicious coffee roast, lactose and espresso. Mouthfeel is perfect - especially for the porter style, thin-to-medium bodied but not watery, while still displaying great flavors of espresso, milk chocolate, vanilla and a nice earthy roast.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a deep black body with a foamy beige head. Aroma had slight green peppers, burnt toast, black coffee with lots of sweetener, some fermenting dark fruits. Palate is nice with a medium to full mouthfeel, good carbonation, slight finish of heat but itís almost masked by the sweetness. Flavor of dark coffee grounds, sugar, dark well done toast, nice bitterness, dark fruit skins. Overall a very solid beer but the aroma needs a slight tweaking.
