bottle from sampler pack. great dark pour and moderate thick head, bread and coffee nose with some roasty malts in there too. great smooth mouthfeel and some mild sourness in there too. almost perfectly balanced with long somewhat sweet aftertaste.
A great porter overall. Similar to their milk stout in the mouthfeel, but more sweet and well-balanced.

I could be way off the mark with this but my initial reaction was Black Jack gum! Smells just like a fresh pack! Being a porter of course the sweet sugar taste isn’t present but licorice, licorice, licorice screams outta the glass!

Thick head. Dark brown, almost black color. Smells wine and bread that is about to be toasted. The mildest non-nitro beer I’ve ever tried. Sweet bread, roast that is there for you in the aftertaste as well. Light bitterness in the finish. Good.

0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Way too hoppy for a porter, definitely not "black", smells like water. Horrible beer.

bottle into goblet glass. Deep dark brown with very small head, slight sweetness then you get the roasted malt with a hint of coffee. It is smooth and light and pretty well balanced, overall a nice porter.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle into tall goblet. Very dark brown, minimal head. Typical porter light coffee roast blended with plum nose. Roasty flavor, finishes with refreshing touch of bitter. A solid porter, but nothing terribly special.

Not bad but not great either. Good color, nice aroma but still kind of falls short.

Decent Porter. It’s a bit mild, smooth, other stuff. 6.8% alcohol is a good thing.
