3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma of caramelized malt. Dark brown with thin foamy head. Good clarity. Bit of an astringency that is characteristic of some porters. Mouthfeel is velvety, heavy. Dry finish. Not for guzzling. Flavor is that of dark roasted malts, dark fruits and nuttiness. Great beer.

Dark brown ale. No head. Smells of hops and molasses. Honey. Rye bread and good floral notes. Lighter than i thought it would be. Very good.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clean crisp taste, however taste is not long lasting. Appearance starts strong, but is short lasting. Not a bad beer, but far from a favorite.

New beer rater, but I will try. Beer looked appealing, but head was very short. Relatively light to medium feel on my tongue. Okay going down, but aftertaste was much better.
