4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a thick dark brown with a tightly bubbled cream head, aroma of chocolate, super smooth roasted flavours with coffee aftertaste. A rich full flavoured Porter for those that love dark beers.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
@ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear dark mahogany with a thick rim head and no lace. Taste is lightly smoked caramel malt with peat and earthy overtones. Flavor builds through the palate before adding a very light bittering to balance in the finish. A somewhat chewy, oily brew, filling, and not as satisfying as I would like. Decent, not great.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Pours a medium rapidly collapsing beige head, with some lacing, over a clear dark brown (SRM 30) body....nose is coffee, chocolate, smoke, hints of dried fruit.....taste is light smoke (with hints of Scotch Whisky), chocolate, coffee, cocoa, hints of toffee/caramel, leading to a moderate bitter finish with hints of pine and citrus peel.....mouth feel medium, slightly sticky, alcohol hidden, carbonation adds a tingle and light acid. This is a wonderfully complex, well balanced beer. It is a bit of a cross between a Scotch Ale and a Porter but does not over step the styles in such a way as to create a real muddle. BJCP 8/3/15/4/7

Decent Porter. Pours black. Aromas are sweet and malty... Caramel. Flavors are bitter malts with enough of that peat and caramel sweetness to keep it balanced.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark body. Not along lasting head. Pretty typical slighty sweet stout. Nice but not interesting.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle pours a really dark red-brown, with a tan head. The aroma is pretty malty, light smoke note. The taste is smooth, the malt provides a nice bitter in the finish. Overall the roasted barley is strong, giving this beer a good taste and a rich finish.

Aroma is roasted malts, with hints of vanilla. Pours a dark brown with a mostly diminishing tan head and minimal lacing. The taste has a roasty sweetness. Medium-full body and medium carbonation. Smooth mouthfeel. Overall, a nice porter that I would drink again.
