Can with Sander at his place. Decent roast aroma, some mild tobacco and cocoa. Medium sweet flavor, some earth, cigar smoke, burnt sugar. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish, modest roast, some dark sugar, light dirty bitterness of earth, mild charcoal. Pretty decent.

Can. And, in fact, drinking from the can, I couldn’tvreally tell what color it was. Dark, probably. It also had an aroma, I’m sure. Taste was kind of a dull chocolate milk and coffee.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can... Vero Beach “GET YOUR RUDOLPH ON” Throwdown… Dark brown ale with a small, fizzy, off-white head. The aromatics focus on mocha and minerals. Medium-bodied with meek carbonation. The flavor is bitter and nutty… but mostly just bitter. Finishes roasty, bitter and bone-dry. Can courtesy of Blazer06!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
16 ounce can. Pours a dark brown color with a thin creamy head. Decent head retention. Aroma of roasted malts with a sweet finish. Fairly faint. The taste is sweet malts, some roastiness, faint fruits and leafy hops. Medium bodied. A bit too sweet but still a solid beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours very dark thick turbid brown, toward black (no ruby here), with 3-finger creamy tan head and copious lacing. Nose is chocolate malt, some definite spicy , peppery, and hoppy hints. Tastes rich, somewhat sweet, witha big chocolate flavor, some carob nibs, roasty chocolate malt, and finishing hints of smokiness and molasses. The hops emerge late, and the palate remains complex and thick and smooth. A wonderful porter.

Thin, water, metallic, an extremely poor porter. The original must have blown if they are saying this is better.

Cheers to Tony @ OTH for opening this one.
Pours dark brown, off-white head.
Aroma dark malts, intense roasted goodness, caramel.
Flavor, amazingly easy to drink, lots of chocolate malts, roast, hints of hops bitterness, carbonation might have been a tad too high, nice bready/dough finish.
This is tasty!
