4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is sweet, malty, hints of coffee and vanilla. Appearance is dark brown, creamy darkish brown head. The flavor is lighter than expected, but tastes of sweet malts and a light coffee bitterness. The mouthfeel is super malty, just the way I like it. Overall, it is solid. Reminds me of Edmund Fitzgerald. I would buy it again.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @ Kuhnhenn:Jet black & silky pour with a small, khaki colored head perched on top for a short while. Huge roasted aroma with plentiful malts, char, & light smoke. Little bit of dried cocoa dust & a hint of ash. Mouth feel is a little thinner than expected, but still has some creaminess to it. Heavy roast on the palate as well with a modest campfire-like char & ashy tone. Some balancing sweet flavors come out; mild baker’s chocolate, prune, & a hint of red grape. A hint of toasted nuttiness lingers in the finish with more notes of heavily roasted dark malt. Don’t get many hops out of this one, but they aren’t necessarily missed. Good porter.
