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. Itís flat. The flavor was complex with chocolate, fruit and a bit of roast. But itís 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!!

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.

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
