3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Large tan head, rocky, lasting, gobyalers of lace. Black, opaque. Nose of pine and roast, hint of resin, green. Body is med/full, chewy, dry and grainy. Decent blend of hops and dark malts, maybe a hint of patent, roasty with a slithering hop juicyness to it, piney, citrusy.Dry, roasty finish with a tame bite. I,ll take Another One over Weez, though still nice.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a solid black color with a huge tan head that persists forever. Earthy hoppy aroma with a roasty chocolate some dark fruit and a hint of cardboard. The flavor is earthy and citrus hoppy with a fair amount of dark chocolate and roasted coffee. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a slick roasty gritty mouthfeel. Nice hoppy porter very tasty.

Huge piney danky hoppiness and chocolate back bone somehow work in this one without being too muddled. Roast and citrus are light and round it out well.

Bottle. Pours dark mahogany, almost black with a large beige head. Aromas are floral with dark, roasted malt. Buttery mouthfeel with plenty of hops and malt showing through. Long, bitter finish. Awesome beer.

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2013 Draft at Churchkey. Beautiful black pour with a medium-sized off-white head. Nose and flavor are fully rife with earthen loam and rich pine and spruce bitterness, hints of pink grapefruit and lemon rind, and beautiful chocolate and roasty bitterness. Smooth and flavorful throughout the taste. Not quite as vibrant as my favorites of the style (Shaun Hill), but that’s a tall order, and this is an outstanding brew.

Pours a deep burnt umber with a finger of thick sticky khaki foam. Lots of roasted chocolate, pine, citrus, grass and coffee in the finish. Overall a nice beer with a pretty silky mouthfeel. Easy to drink just a bit underwhelming.
