3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours almost black thin tan lacing. Mild aroma of chocolate, coffee, and bittering hops. Medium-high sweet taste. Heavy body, very thick texture, definitely chewy as described. Finishes very smooth, very light hop but also not a real sweet finish, which is good since there is much sweetness up front. Enjoyable porter, reminds me of an oatmeal porter.

Dark brown/black pour from draft at high velocity in Indy. Off white sticky head. Pretty malty. Earth dark chocolate and a slightly sweet taste. Creamy. Rich. I like it.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle, picked up from Kahn’s on Keystone. Dark red color, appears like a brow color. Thin light brown head. Some dark fruit, light caramel, mild coffee, and a hint of metallic in the aroma. Moderate sweet taste, very light bitter. Medium plus body. Kind of chewy texture. Lighter lightly soft carbonation, sort of tingly, lightly rough. An OK porter, a bit too sweet for me. More hop balance would be nice, but who knows how fresh this is.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle to half-pint glass. Looks decent; way too much head though. A hazy dark brown with foamy beige head that dominates the glass. Smells of dark malt and bitter roast. Tastes like it smells with an average (at best) mouthfeel. Unbalanced.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very well balanced. Hops come through, thicker then most porters, I really liked this one. Chocolate, vanilla, and hints of coffee come through on the finish. Would seek this one out!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Nose has some roastiness in there with some definite smokiness, very much like a peaty scotch. Taste is actually a touch sweet up front, with some toasting in there as well. Decently drinkable.
