3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On Tap, into Growler. Pours a pitch black with very little, if any head. Dark roast and burnt coffee aromas. Tast is combination of roast coffee, malt and some slight toffee notes. Could use a more mouthy feel, but if you like coffee, this porter is for you!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Warsaw brewpub. Coffee, chocolate, sweet lactose aroma... smells like a sweet cappuccino. Black with a small creamy tan head. Dark roasted coffee, light chocolate, and ash flavor. Thin watery body and light carbonation. Overall, there was a slightly watery quality to both the flavor and body, but it was still pretty good.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft @ MABC: Pours a jet black with some mahogany around the edges and a medium-sized tan head. Immediately the coffee hits upon the glass arriving, notes of dark malts and an underlying bitter dark chocolate come in to the fold but this is mainly all about the coffee. Medium-full bodied mouth feel, perfectly carbonated. Flavor is all dark malts and coffee with some subtle chocolate flavors lingering. Good stuff and another solid brew from MABC.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Mad Anthony and served in a shaker. This beer poured a dark brown with a thick, creamy tan head that quickly settled. A decent amount of lacing was left around the glass. The aroma of the beer was made up of strong coffee notes and a bit of chocolate. The flavor was dominated by rich, strong coffee with a touch of chocolate and vanilla. The mouthfeel was medium-bodied and just a tad thin with a moderate amount of carbonation. An easy drinking porter with a nice coffee flavor.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This draft brew from the brewery during the Fort Wayne Locals Tasting event on 2/4/06 poured a small sized head of brown colored frothy fine to medium sized bubbles that were served mostly diminished. The body was dark black in color and very much opaque with no hope of viewing the carbonation. It left behind a fair lacing. It had a mild malty aroma with a mouth feel that was nicely tingly at the start with a nice hoppy note and a finish of mild coffee aftertaste. The flavor was a nice mix of mild coffee dark malt and hops.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
I could drink this for my morning jo. Pours dark with tan lacing and a fine head. Roasted espresso bean aroma and flavor predominate. Finishes clean with lingering coffee notes. Little in way of hop notes. Not bad.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at the brewpub - mild malt and coffee aroma, long lasting head with nice lacing. Mildly roasted malts and coffee dominate the flavor. Palate is fairly smooth with moderate carbonation. It’s not on the caliber of MA’s bourbon barrel porter, but still this is very nice porter. They’ve got the style and variations down very well.
