Pours dark chocolatey brown, tan head. Aroma is that of chocolate and roasted coffee. Taste is robust, roasty, chocolatey and had a slight hint of hop floralness. Body is a little on the lighter side, very creamy. Great beer!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Deep brown/black body. Large, frothy tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate, vanilla, light burnt notes, cocoa powder, coffee. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, moderate carbonation. Nice balance between sweet malts and roasted malt/hop bitterness. Light acidity, tartness in the finish. Light graphite taste, but probably due to the age of the beer. Good beer.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured a dark chocolate color with a nice light tan head and good lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and can detect the oats. Taste has chocolate with a hint of sweetness that fades into a nice smooth roastiness. Brewed coffee flavor and a blend of mild hop and roast bitterness, along with some oat character in the background. Finished with mild roastiness and bitter. Mouthfeel was creamy with a medium/full body and moderate carbonation. Smooth, rounded flavors that cominent each other perfectly. Top notch Porter.
