3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Acceptable aroma: roasty, coffee, a little sour. The appearance is dark brown/black, decent head. Flavor starts out sweet, then a noticable burnt roastiness. Finally, there is a wierd sourness to it. The finish lingers, but it has a strange sour milk quality. The mouthfeel is on the thick side. OK porter, not the best by any means.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a deep dark brown with a long lasting tan head that is fed by a stream of carbonation bubbles. Very nice aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. The flavor is less distinctive than the aroma with some roasted malt and a bit of chocolate follwed by some hops bitterness. Somewhat bitter and a bit dry at the finish. An ok porter.
