4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
12 oz bottle from Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh. Nearly perfect. Smooth and creamy, with just the right amount of sweetness. Just a hint of bitterness on the finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle via me. High five to myself! Pours a very dark brown with a scant tan head that fades to a lacing within a minute or two. Aromas of coffee, roasted barley and dirty Englishman returning home after fishing the wharf all day. Those blimey biscuit eating bilge rats! Taste is semi sweet with a bitterness derived from the roast, not the hops. Flavors of dark cock sauce, coffee, dirty english man-ass. Really relaxing and enjoying. Plenty of flavor packed into this little brew. Roast, coffee, caramel, circumcised english cock. Pretty nice.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This pours almost opaque Mahogany with the deepest of walnut fringes. The head fully diminishes, leaving a thin ring of suds down the glass and trace lacing. The nose is of chocolate and coffee, slightly roasted. Sweet dark malt upfront, dark chocolate and some grains hitting the mid-palate, and finishing clean with a perfectly balanced bittering hop. The medium–full body goes down very smoothly, with a round mouthfeel and slick down the palate. Great complexity and substance in a highly drinkable porter. Very nice!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pour. Pours a dark brown to black with a khaki colored head of foam. Good retention. The aroma is nicely roasty and sweet. I get hints at coffee and vanilla beans. The taste is rich and roasty. Medium mouthfeel with low to medium carbonation. I liked this beer a lot more than I expected to. Very good.
