3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Black with a small tan head. Average for a porter in many ways ... no great intensity or complexity, but drinkable balance of chocolate malts and sweetness, with classic British hops to provide some ibtterness.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A red-brown beer with a thin brown head. The aroma is sweet with primary notes of caramel, as well as lighter notes of hops and roasted malt. The flavor is dry and quite roasted, as hard roasted malt. An OK beer.

Bottle. Clear dark brown in color with a spare tan head. The only downside is a slight mild cheese aroma mixed with roasted malt. But otherwise this is a nice solid porter.

It had a nice dark brown color with a spare head. It had a nice smooth chocholate taste that was very balanced with a nice finish.

12 oz bottle, via nolankowal. Pours a clear dark brown with a small light brown head that fades to a thin covering quickly. Standard Porter aroma, heavy on the chocolate malt with a nice roasted malt accent. Fairly dry with some coffee as well. Flavor follows aroma in step, chocolate and roast with moderate bitterness, a little burnt astringency, and a dry chalky finish. Medium bodied with a moderate fine bubbled carbonation. A decent Porter, certainly drinkable.

Bottle. Pours black with a nice tan head. Aroma of chocolate, creme, with some mustyness. Typical roasted malt and chocolate flavors. There is an unpleasant flavor in the finish that I can’t figure out. This tastes like something made from an extract homebrew kit. Not very exciting

Pours black with deep crimson along the edges an a small light tan head. The aroma is kind of awkward...both milk chocolate with some light moldy characteristics make the nose a bit uninviting...but nothing to terribly off putting. The flavor is nice, roasty...with flavors of liquorice, caramelized sugar, and coffee with chocolate dominating. Malty, almost a bit clumpy at times over the tounge witha light bittersweet toasty finish. Nice porter despite a few minor flaws.

Light aroma but a great finish. Came from a bottle with the and had a chocolate taste with a little coffee and caramel. Extremely enjoyable, would definately buy this beer again.
