The aroma is nice with chocolate, toasted malt, and brown sugar. The appearance is dark brown with a small head. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is typical for the style. Overall it’s nice but not excellent.

Bottle (12oz). Courtesy of my Secret Santa. Deep ruby-brown, clear, smallish beige head. Nice rich nutty/chocolate roast malt aroma, lactic and vaguely hoppy. Decent nutty taste, not too sweet, enough hops to impart a bitter finish, somewhat mild. Avearge porter body, dry, lightly astringent, medium finish - good mid-level porter, not exceptional.

Brownish porter with sacchirine aromas of toffee, chocolate, and coffee. Good chocolate taste, but light. The hop bitterness and the chickory backing begin to show through as the beer warms. Hope on the finish. All in all, palate is too light to showcase the good flavors working here.

On my first wiff of the aroma i detected some hoppiness which faded into a more normal, molasses and coffee porter nose. It is transparent dark brown with a tiny tan head, Flavor favors coffee with chocolate hints and a tiny hop finish.

Pours black with a decent head. Seems mild for a porter. Light aroma and flavor of coffee and roasted malts. Not too shabby.

Wonderful little beer. Initial taste is sweet and malty. Body is relatively bold with a nice molasses taste and slight bits of coffee. Goes down extremely smooth.

I enjoyed this one a lot. Reminded me faintly of the Milk stout. Very similar characteristics. Great color, a nice rich thick body for a porter. The aftertaste was sweet and creamy. Delicious.
