3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
7/13/2011: Shastafarian Porter... Aroma: Chocolate cocoa, vanilla; slight mineral characteristic; rich, high grade espresso. Appearance: Really deep, dark mahogany color, opaque; firm brown head; this is a really attractive porter! Flavor: Wow, really good, complex, and interesting flavor that has held up very well... Smoky chocolate and char, rich roasty and caramelized malts, muted licorice, black tea, soft espresso, chocolate milk finish. Palate: Medium-bodied; good thickness, slightly soft. Overall: This is a REALLY nice brew that has held up fantastic over the years; Iíd love to have a few more bottles of this to enjoy; super sessionable porter!
12 fl. oz. bottle (Alc Vol 6.0 %) via trade from kenb in 200?. Thank you! Rating #132 for this beer.

Sweet smell and beige head. Thereís definitely a caramel and coffee taste at first the it goes in the nutty/vanilla direction in the aftertaste. Tastes lighter than it looks. Not to say itís light, the color is just a very dark brown. Would be great in cold settings.
