3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Foggy root beer brown with a dense light tan head. Very nice roast aroma which reminded me of toasted almonds or parched soy nuts with a little dark chocolate. Lightly buttered, nutty light sweetness, coffee. Light body, lingering coffee and nuts, but generally a crisp finish. Very enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tallahassee, FL - on tap at the brewpub. Dark brown pour, nice thick khaki colored head, nice rings of lacing. Aroma has some marshmallow accents, a hint of bittersweet choocolate, some sweet marzipan. Flavor is rich, some chocolate notes, some melted marshmallows, a touch of licorice and back end of toffee. Silky mouthfeel. Overall, a very poundable porter.
