3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
No sign of head. Toffee and dark fruits but really thin, especially the finish. Time for a fresh keg?

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can from Brewtopia. Near black with lasting tan head and a little lace. Nice roasted coffee chocolate nutty earthy aroma. Chocolate sweetness with just enough fruitiness to balance it. Earthy roasty bitterness with just enough wood and a touch of ash. Medium light body creamy. Really nice. If I was stuck drinking this all night, I wouldn’t complain a bit.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub.
Dark brown black color with a decent but short lived creamy off white head. Roasty chocolate with hints of fruit and earth. Nothing earth shattering but less flawed than the other beers I tried today.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This was just an excellent beer. Draft at source. Came with a nice off-white head. Aromas of roasted malts, mild hops. Taste was rich and full with malty initial flavors blending into strong roasty flavors very smoothly. Smooth bitter finish balances out the malty flavors nicely.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at Millys. Pour was dark...no head no lacing, nothing. It’s flat. The flavor was complex with chocolate, fruit and a bit of roast. But it’s flat....and that kills everything.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Millys. Nice deep dark brown almost black color. Thick head that left substantial lacing. Aroma is intense dark chocolate, burned malts, slight char- brown nutty malts, and coffee. A little roast in the flavor- lots of chocolate malts, nutty, toffee, light fruitiness, and a good caramel middle- nice smooth finish. I agree with AirForceHops, the General would be proud!!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at Millys. Nice deep dark brown almost black color. Thick head that left substantial lacing. Aroma is intense dark chocolate, burned malts, slight char- brown nutty malts, and coffee. A little roast in the flavor- lots of chocolate malts, nutty, toffee, light fruitiness, and a good caramel middle- nice smooth finish. The best brew in the session. The General would be proud of this beer!! It pared well with my steak tips.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap of course. It pours brown to black with some ruby tints when held to the light. It is topped with a tan, foamy head. I really did not note any distinctive aroma. There was a freshness about it but no chocolate scent as is typical with a porter. The mouthfeel tended to be on the thin side. The taste had bitter and malty air to it along with a decent hop chaser.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black with a small off-white head. Aroma is fruity with licorice. Fruity sweet flavour with toffee and licorice, and a strong roasted charcoal note in the finish
