3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2013 Tastes closer to a schwarzbier than a porter, doesn’t quite have the edge. Decent for what its worth but could be more malty and complex

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured a deep chocolatey-brown with a good-sized tan head. Aromas of coffee and chocolate. Smooth mouthfeel, slightly light, slightly oily. Smooth chocolate flavor with notes of coffee and a slight fruitiness in the finish. A solid brew. Not outstanding, but FAR better than the usual from A-B.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz. bottle poured into glass. Pours a dark brown/very dark amber color with an off white head. Aroma is of dark roast and chocolate. Has the same characteristics as any other porter. More watery than most I’ve had. It leaves a dark, chocolate aftertaste but the first impression is almost like a generic pale lager. I’m biased towards porters so I gave this one a pretty good rating, but there are better porters out there. 13/20

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours dark brown with almost no head. Sweet taste and aroma of roasted coffee. Thin and weak for a porter, but off the charts for a Budweiser product

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a deep mohagany with a thin head. Very little nose and the palate is a little roasted barley but over all not good. Sorry If you’ve had it.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle; Used most to cook with. Dark cola brown. Aroma of caramel and roasted oats. Flavor was ok; a bit harsh, but ok. Actually tasted like the style, which was surprising

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Black with tan head. Almost no aroma...faintly malty. Flavor is modest malt...hint of chocolate. Clean finish. Ok mouthfeel. Not bad for a macro.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle served in a Sam Adams glass. Pours like cola, clear brown with a fizzy tan head. The smell is chocolate and doughy. The flavor is that of chocolate and molasses with a bit of a doughy finish. Body is thin and the carbonation a bit harsh. Quite balanced throughout. Very impressive for a macro.
