4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Actually bought this in a 11.2 oz bottle at Gordon’s today. Coming in at 6.5% ABV. It poured out a perfect color for Porter Dark Dark brown but not Stout opaque and it had a thick light light brown head. Roasted Malt dominates the sweet aroma. A almost perfect smell for a porter. The palate isn’t as smooth as I expected, but the flavor is spot on. It starts with that sweet toasted malt flavor and just brings in the images of slow roasting some malt over an open fire. Ok, Time to enjoy the rest of this one without typing.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a deep mahogany color with a nice head and lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and coffee. Taste of roasted malt with a subtle touch of chocolate and coffee. Easy bitterness and a dry finish. Moderate body, nicely crafted, as the chocolate and coffee compliment not overpower the brew. Enjoyable beer to relax with.
