3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Small tan head and brownish black liquid. Aroma of grapes and dark fruits, coffee, somewhat piquant, but always fruity. The taste is immediately a build-up of dark chocolate, cocoa and some more coffee with toasted notes; an underlying sweetness contributes to its smooth and balanced flavour profile. Caramel and fudge too. Very tasty indeed. Medium or medium to full body, the texture is oily but not too thick, soft carbonation and a deep long finish. Nice porter.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black brew with decent tan head that holds on a while. Smells mostly of chocolate malts but the taste is roasted, chocolate, and mild coffee. Was thinking this was more bordering on a stout then I read the side of the bottle. Yep their deScription of this brew is dead on. Not as thick or hardy as I would like to have had on this cold rainy day but the three bottles from the sampler pack was enjoyable.
