12 oz bottle. Earthy, nutty aroma, not unpleasant. Had a slight tan head. Medium-to-thin mouthfeel. Robust malted flavor, with a very bitter nutty aftertaste. A good porter, one of the earthier ones I’ve had.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Woodmans in the Falls. Brown pour with a light brown head. Aroma has caramel and fruit and molasses-y old socks. Taste is of sweet caramel, some molasses, a bit of brown sugar and light earth. Medium bodied. Finishes sweet and earthy. Mix of a brown and a scotch ale, more than a porter, IMO. 12.8

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Crushed with Jakebra
Pours a dark brown with reddish hues when held up to light. The head is medium sized and leaves some lacing on the glass.
Man, the aroma is really sweet... lots of molasses & raisin. It’s got some roastiness, but geeze it’s really raisiny.
The flavor is tart fruit, like to the point of sour. It’s nutty & has some coffee to it, it’s got plenty of raisin, but man this comes across more as a sour. It’s not bad, it just took me totally off guard.
What a strange beer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a nice mahogany. Medium creamy khaki head, little lasting with dome lace. Aroma has a good amount of licorice, some caramel, faint dry light roasty chocolate. Flavor is mild hoppy, very light roast, more licorice, dry bitter coffee towards the end. Medium to full body. Very creamy. Feels good on the palate. Light bitterness. Light dryness. Good but not too exciting.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz. bottle that I purchase in Wisconsin during my recent roadtrip to Yellowstone. Pours very dark brown, just about black, with a thin-moderate tan head that is gone by the second sip and leaves no lace. The aroma is roasted malt with stale tobacco. The flavor continues the roasted malt and stale tobacco theme, but also includes a notable metallic twang. Medium bodied. Not worth finishing...and I didn’t.
