crazyvin's rating

3.1
   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 13/20
crazyvin (1979) - New York, USA - APR 2, 2014
A black body with a tan head. Aroma had a robust coffee presence initially. Hints of chocolate and mild licorice. Flavor seemed to be mostly coffee malts. There was some sweetness to it. Almost one dimensional. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

loubar (51) - Los Gatos, California, USA - NOV 17, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Trader Joe’s. Nose is light and slightly skunky. Taste is a little smoky but that is where the porter similarity ends. From there it’s mildly acidic and watery. Ugh! Fortunately I only purchased one bottle.

Patrickctenchi (3969) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - OCT 30, 2014
Bottle: Deep brown, rubied, with a small tan head. Cola, chocolate scent. Taste is moderately bitter dark chocolate/cocoa, flat cola. Light, earthy-nutty bitter. Not too bad, pretty watery, though.

rosenbergh (7248) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 24, 2014
12 oz can. BBE J/15. (Trader Joe’s) Greenville, SC.
Dark reddish brown colour with a small white head. Toasted malt, sweetness, some hops and some cardboard in the aroma. The flavour is toasted malt, dryness, cardboard and some mild hops. Thin.

shrubber85 (7877) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 23, 2014
Bottle. Light ash, hay, and chocolate malt aroma. Chestnut brown with small head. Sweet cocoa malt and moderately bitter herbal flavor. Very light body. Okay but very light.

SoberDave (145) - 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.

slowrunner77 (6035) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 29, 2014
"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."

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 8/20
Elwood (3336) - 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.

suprchunk (2323) - Crestview, Florida, USA - SEP 16, 2014
Brown pour. Tan head. Little lacing. Smells of not much. Butter bomb. Sweet finish. Too sweet.

Frank (2976) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 1, 2014
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 (4323) - 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.
