4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
A delicious porter, very dark, with a medium head. The caramelized malt aroma and taste are the distinguishing factors. The malt overpowers the hops, which I like. Excellent porter taste.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. Dark ruby body with an average brown head that diminishes pretty quickly, but leaves a good lace. Smells amazing: vanilla, coffee, caramel, roasted malts. Medium sweet taste, here caramel dominates. Pretty thin body, watery texture, average carbonation. A very good beer, that would have been better if it had more body.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark brown with ruby edging, a thinner khaki head, and some spotty lace. Nose involves dark chocolate, licorice, toast, herbal hops, leather, and ash. Pretty sweet with a fair bitterness. Lighter bodied, active, creamy, somewhat thin, with a toasty bitter finish. Pretty good porter, on the lighter side despite the ABV, quite drinkable.

Pours dark ruby black with minimal head. Aroma of dark fruit, plums, sugarcane. Taste is a lot drier than the sweet smell, lots of licorice, coffee, dark chocolate, some roastyness. Light body but full taste. Very nice porter.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark with ruby tints. Small head and almost no lacing. Aroma: vanilla and roast. Taste is lots of roast with some vanilla in the finish. Does not linger particularly long. Slightly watery palate, though there is an elegant smoothness as well. Easy to drink, if not outstanding, porter.
