Thanks to José Pérez. Dark brown color, almost black with a minimal and quickly diminishig off-white head. Aroma has notes of licorice, some coffee, and light roasted malts. Flavor is slightly sweet at the beginning, roasted notes with licorice and coffee beans notes, some ashes in the final with a light bitterness.

Nice, really smooth beer. Pours a dark color, taste faintly of chocolate. I think this would be a real good intro beer for some who hasn’t tried/doesn’t like dark brews. Easy to drink!

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Average with some flaws. Aroma was very malty with tiny bits of roasted character and vanilla. Typically dark brown color with a sustainable head. Palate was full but left a malty puckering feel that was not all that pleasant, which was not from souring, just imbalance. Flavors were roasted and vanilla with a little nuttiness. The hops presence was minimal with the maltiness being somewhat dominating. Not worth a return visit.

Bottle. Poured dark brown with a tan head. Smelled like a vanilla cola or some sort. Thin, fizzy vanilla and cola flavor. Really filling. I like some of their stuff but this isn’t one of them.

This beer had the promise of being something really special. A great style by an imaginative brewery. Unfortunately, it was saccharine and thin, with more sugar and fake vanilla flavor than the notes that make porters great.
