4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at brewery. Body-dark cola with a eighth inch foamy/dense head. Great looking for a porter. Nose-roasty, marshmallows, slightly lactic, lightly scorched, very light cola, low to medium sweetness, smore like, light nut, medium palate, light charred oak. One of the, if not THE, best Porters I have ever had.

Black as the dark side of the moon. Lasting, thick head. Mouthfeel is lightish, but definitely pronounced. Rich and roasty, without an overpowering malt sweetness. Mild burntness with a sugary coffee note. Wholesome, nicely balanced. Rich finish with a healthy hoppiness and a lingering bitterness. I really enjoyed this porter.

Smells sweet and of roasted malt. Nice mellow character - a very well balanced robust porter.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Roasty malts are somewhat chalky in the aroma with plenty of chocolate and hickory nuttiness. Opaque brown body with a strong, brown, fine bubbled head that recedes to cover with great lacing. Pleasantly hoppy for a porter but nicely balanced between herbal, leafy and orange floral hops and roasted malts with an underlying chocolatey sweetness. Bitterness is pronounced without overwhelming. Medium body is dry and well attenuated with a creamy texture and soft but lively carbonation. Sampled on tap at the brewpub with ClarkVV, Olivier_MTL and Rastacouere.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep coke, mounted by a never-dying off-white head. Elegant nuttiness sides along espresso, dates and blackberries just as a good dose of grassy and orangey hops procure a sense of spicy identity. Great balance from start to finish, the flavors blend in together. Medium bodied, engaging carbonation, dry palate, restrained bitterness despite the pleasant hop aromatics. Yum.

On tap at the Southern Sun Location. Poured a dark black color with red edges and a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of roast, coffee, and light chocolate. Tastes of roast, chocolate with a bitter coffee finish. Nice bitter finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at brewpub. Solid and enjoyable. Black pour with tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, coffee and vanilla. The flavor, too, featured the dark malts, but with a slightly sweet undercurrent and bitter, dry finish that hinted at licorice. Medium body, nice carbonation.
