3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewpub in Portland.
lack and opaque with ruby-brown edges. A durable tan head left streaks of sticky lacing.
Aroma: slightly strong for style, with hints of cocoa nibs and burnt toast.
Flavor: Fortunately, there’s far less burnt/char quality in the flavor than in the nose. Black coffee kicks in for the lingering, roasty aftertaste.
Feel: full bodies with lively, medium carbonation.
O: Decent, dark-roasted version of the style.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a almost pure black color with a medium white head. A light nose of chocolates, some lactose. The flavor is medium toasted malts, lean chocolates, caramel, toffee perhaps, a bit thin. Some milkiness. OK.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Migration, Portland - 07/11/12.
Very dark mahogony brown bordering light black with a thin tan head.
Nose is dark roast malts, molasses, chocolate and liqourice.
Taste follows nose, roast malt forward, bitter chocolate.
Medium bodied with slightly spritzy carbonation, a little too much for me.
Ok - drinkable porter but nothing too exciting.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Smoky, roasted notes arise, followed by cocoa. Brown/black with garnet edges and creamy taupe head. Less roast on the taste than would be expected, but pleasant. Focus is more on chocolate. Finish is remarkably smooth. Medium body, but easier drinking than usual. For a style I’m not usually fond of, a great beer. Easy to enjoy and drink without feeling like you’re choking on a chimeny.

Draught. Pours black with beige head. Much lacing. Slight aroma, due to being slightly too cold. Aroma is malty. Medium to full flavour, malt, chocolate and coffee notes. Coffee finish.
