3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Chocolate roasted malt aroma and flavor. Has a bitter cocoa finish that detracts a bit, but also a lactose smoothness and slight lactose sweetness. Body feels a bit thin in the middle but overall it is a nice easy drinking Porter. There is a noticeable hop bitterness that comes through. Herbal, a bit floral, somewhat nice and a bit distracting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours clear dark brown with lots of floaters (yeast?), small beige head and some lacing. Aroma of milk chocolate, roasted coffee and vanilla. Taste of roasted malts, sweet caramel, chocolate and ashes
A good solid beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at The Brew Dock, pours black with a small tan head. Nose brings out dry cocoa and light toasted malt. Flavour is on the sweeter side, with sweet cocoa and light toasted malt. Certainly on the sweeter side - perhaps too much so. Competently brewed and decently balanced despite the high sweetness. Okay.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
