3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle dated 6 months ago from Evergreen Discount. Black with a nice tan head and light lacing. Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malts and light mint. Similar flavor, roasted and bittersweet with light vanilla. Medium body with soft carbonation and nice roasted coffee finish. Overall, nicely balanced, full of flavor and easy to drink. This held up pretty well.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Smooth taste for a Porter. Coffee flavor is perceptible but not that strong. If there is no other Porter on the menu, you can't go wrong with this one.

Poured from bottle to glass. There wasn’t much of a head after pouring. Faint porter and coffee aroma. Great solid porter flavor throughout infused with a proper amount of coffee. Drinkable with big flavor benefits.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours black coffee. Aroma is nice: kona coffee, cereal, hops are hard to find, some dough, leather?, more coffee... Taste is balanced with a nod to bitter. I wound up not enjoying the watered down iced coffee feel. Won’t buy again. Won’t drink again.
