4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours amber with small head. Aroma: dark chocolate, cocoa, some espresso. Taste: again dark chocolate and cocoa in the first place, followed by espresso, roasted malt and some hops in the palate. For me this is a perfect example of a super drinkable US porter. You immediately want to take another sip. Aroma and taste kill with their intensity, at the same time is is super drinkable, not too high carbonation and well hidden ABV. Fantastic porter I could drink all year long, not just in autumn and winter! P.s. I kept it for almost a year in my cellar. Not sure how a fresh one tastes but this one was awesome.

Old rating. Bottle from Old Town. Deep brown with ruby highlights with a quickly dissipating tan head. Milk chocolate, coffee and roasted malts on the nose. Oily mouthfeel with a medium body. Sweet on the palate with caramel an dark fruit present as well as the chocolate and coffee aromas. Smooth finish and slightly warming on the finish.

Pours a deep amber colour, not quite as dark as some porters, minimal head. Aroma is sweet malt, chocolate, coffee and some berry type fruit. Taste initially rather sweet but is quickly balanced by a toasted dry bitterness, which isn’t over powering. Smooth and nice, a good porter.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, shared with Parksy. Oddly more golden amber than dark brown. Milk chocolate, caramel, mildly hoppy finish. Not a very good porter, surprisingly.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Choc and roasted barley aroma in this clear deep brown brew. Choc flavor thru out the whole drink kinda crisp up front and a slight alcohol burn or taste on the back end. It's medium bodied and easy to drink. Not a bad brew.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Taste roasted malt, chocolate, sweet. I thought this was good. I would drink this again.

A good all-around porter. Not too heavy, not too strong. Has a dark brown-near black color. Tastes of malts, slight coffee, bits of caramel. Good carbonation and head. One of my favorite "budget saver" porters out there.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Absolut in Ordnung, ohne dabei in irgendeiner Form aussergewoehnlich zu sein. Trocken, knackig, sueffig, dabei jedoch recht dunkel, bitter und roestig. Nicht ganz mein Ding, aber absolute Qualitaetsware.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Rudat in Dortmund. The beer has got a deep black colour with an airy but steady head and medium body. Aroma of malt and roast. Taste of roasted malt, torf, dark bread, stroong coffee, leather and earth. Dry and roasty finish. Easy drinkable and solid in its style, yet nothing very spectacular.
