4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Very well-finished, sweet porter. Rich, tasty, with no off-flavors. Lingering sweet finish. I definitely prefer the robust flavor of this porter, which is plenty potent, without the boozy high-ABVís typical of imperial stouts.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
chocolate, caramel, smoke, brown, light sweetness, lightly bitter, medium body, thick feel. Dark brown, unappealing sediment visible. Dark chocolate and smokehouse aromas. Thick in the mouth. Bitter chocolate taste, with heavy artificial smoke notes. Reminds me of high-school bonfires, slightly flat and though cool, tastes warm. Not bad per se, but honestly the smoke is overpowering.
