4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Churchkey. Rich, chocolate brown pour with a creamy beige head. Nose and flavor bring a lovely combination of creamy vanilla and chocolate sweetness, roasted bitterness, and dank, resinous evergreen hops. Velvety and smooth on the palate- surprised this is at the higher end of the porter spectrum for ABV. Another superb effort by Maine Beer Co.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml. bottled 02 25 2014. Opaque with a lasting disc of cream. Nose is cocoa, berries and marshmallow. Flavors of berries, apple, marshmallow, a squeeze of lemon and mocha. Medium body is to the sweet side but the tartness and a long finish of char keeps it in balance.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle. First time trying Maine Beer Co. Pours very dark with creamy tan head. Some lacing. Definite coffee aromas. Tastes of coffee, chocolate, caramel, and a hint of raisin. Great balance of malt with hop bitterness to compliment the chocolate. Very good porter that’s more complex than most.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle: This one pours an opaque, dark brown color. There was a dense, crea,y tan head on it that lingers a bit and leaves some lacing. The aroma is nice. Roasted malts and some coffee. Hints of some caramel and chocolate. The taste is good. Some roasted malts and coffee notes on top. Subdued chocolate in the background. Slightly biter: no sweetness at all. A very nice beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep dark brown beer with a thin foamy beige head. Nose of caramelized sugar, molasses, and cocoa. Flavor is less sweet than the aroma would lead you to believe. It starts with some dark chocolate, light roast coffee, and vanilla bean, which is then capped off by a medium bitterness that lingers. Good, mellow flavor, but I miss some of the roasted flavors I would like in a good porter. Still, a good beer that’s worth trying.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Nice peat flavors, roasty malt characteristics, sweeter than the average as well which probably explains the ratings.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours an opaque dark brown. Aroma is rich, chocolaty with hints of citrus hops. Full dark roasty body with hints of burnt/toasty malt. Has a piney bitter hops finish. A nice range and expression of flavors. A bit highly carbonated yet still smooth and with a lingering aftertaste.
