Clear dark amber beer. Short lived light tan head. Semi dry palate, slightly soft. Smooth dark malt. Just a hint of roastiness. A little minerals in the semi dry finish. Well balanced if very standard porter.

Nice coffee and chocolate aromas, dark
Brown body. Had on tap @ FO. Relatively mild, very smooth. Nice flavors for a porter, a little less than full bodied enough. Pales next to victory at sea, but nice.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice large malted milkball colored head of very fine and dense bubbles. Light roasted grains, milk chocolate, a bit of toffee and some weak coffee. Color is a very dark brown. WOW, big roastyness and bitterness in the flavor. Did not see that coming from the aroma. Lots of strong roasted grains, coffee and some burnt toast. Most of the chocolate present in the aroma is masked by the strong roasted flavors. Maybe some bitter dark chocolate but not a lot. Some pine and floral hops flavors late swallow. A decent porter and a rather strong one.

bottle - Pours very dark brown and smells of milk chocolate and roast malt. It has a sweet chocolate malt taste with a little coffee. This medium bodied brew is a solid porter.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle. Rating #97. Dark brownish/red pour with a tan head. Sweet chocolaty aroma with a light roast. Flavor had a big roasty bite, a bitterness that stuck around for a good while, dark chocolate bitterness big time. (2255)
