2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours dark with an almost nonexistent aroma. Initial taste is roasty malt, but it’s fairly subtle. Finish is dry. It’s just too uninteresting for my palate. I would not buy this one again.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Smells of pine and dark chocolate, oh yeah! Dark brown with a light-brown head. Medium body with a short-lived carbonation bite. Yowza! Flavor is chocolate, light roast, pine, leaf, a hint of nutmeg spice. Good.

A Porter from Portland disguised as a Winter Ale. Too bad it’s only mid-October. Ah hell, it’s my 800th beer rating, Merry Christmas!

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle with Carla. Pours deep brown/red with fizzy dark red/brown foam. Smells like sweet corn cereal. Mouth-feel is very thin. Tastes of molasses and allspice with somewhat sour alcohol.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
22 oz bomber. Pours a deep, dark brown color. Slight tan head. Aroma is very slight, mostly a toasted malt aroma. Flavor is also very subtle, with bitter coffee notes against a background of toasted malt. The thing that really caught my attention right away was the palate. This is really one of the fizziest porters I’ve had. Definitey unexpected.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle from superdave on 1/31/11.
rootbeer-ish porter color with some spots of foam left from the tan head.
it smells and tastes of roast, lactose, choco, grass, spice and floral hops.
the flavor has a touch of typical porter sourness on the finish. plain but solid.
it is a touch thin but i’d crush a ton of ’em. 6/3/6/3/14
