4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Big chocolate aroma. Huge coffee flavor. Palate is medium full. Moderate carbonation bite, which compliments the nice body throughout. This is an excellent porter, borderline stout with its body and roastiness.

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; I’d love to have a few more bottles of this to enjoy; super sessionable porter!
