   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 10/20
LSKennedy (15) - - JAN 2, 2012
12 Oz bottle in a English Pint. Poured black, as it should, with a One Finger head that quickly disintegrated. Very smooth texture, and tastes of Chocolate, coffee and perhaps Wood? No lacing to be had, but still a fulfilling brew. If I need a porter on the cheap, this is definitely a good choice :D

SoberDave (143) - Escondido, California, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Pours brown with a foamy head. Aroma of strong bitter coffee, a little cocoa and bourbon. Very bitter with faint caramel malt flavors, nothing really going on, not totally pleasant. Heavy bite on the tongue overpowers any subtle flavors that might be there. Cheap but wouldn’t buy again.

"for $5.99 a sixer (or a buck for a single) this is a steal. not anything special per se, but a more than serviceable porter. pours black with thin khaki head. a tad thin. the aroma and taste are a bit of a hybrid between an american and london porter...nutty, toffee, roasted malts. quite pleasant , and a pleasant surprise at this price point."

Elwood (3290) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 23, 2014
Serving: Bottle. Dark brown pour with a short lived tan head. Stale nose with a bit of roast and caramel. Weird acridic bitterness on the tongue. Light caramel with a touch of roast and earth. Not much else. Weak body. Pass on this one.

Brown pour. Tan head. Little lacing. Smells of not much. Butter bomb. Sweet finish. Too sweet.

This beer just isn’t any good. It is brown and headless in the glass. It smells and taste sort of vegetal and brackish. It does have a touch of caramel malt character but seems to be oversweet and sluggish because of it. Overall, this is neither good tasting nor drinkable so I can see no real redeeming value.

solidfunk (4135) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Not particularly good by any means. Pours black without much head or lacing. Kind of a sour dishrag finish with some light roast aroma. Bottle.

From TJs. Reminds me of old school microbrew porters, much thinner and less robust than today’s varieties. Mineral taste. Serving: Bottle
