3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. The pour was a murky dark brown with a large (2-3 finger) frothy light brown head that to some extent lasted throughout and produced some really nice spotty lacing.
The aroma was kind of mild of a roasted dark bread malt and an earthy yeast with notes of chocolate, coffee and just a bit of toffee.
The taste was mildly sweet and malty with a slight toffee note in the beginning with a taste progressing into a slight bitter sweet roasty flavor with a noticeable infusion of chocolate and a moderate coffee presence at the end. The flavor lasted only a short while with the chocolate coffee flavor fading fast.
Mouthfeel was just about medium in body and smooth and creamy in texture with a nice soft carbonation.
Overall a slightly passive tasting Porter, with that being said it is still quite delightful to drink.

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.

Draft pour at Porter. Pours dark brown with a fading head. Soapy lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee. Taste is malt, roasted coffee, and a mildly bitter finish. Medium mouthfeel. An underwhelming porter with a thin palate.

12 ounce bottle poured and split. Pours a color black with a foam ring head. Definitely an english porter here. Huge roasted aroma and flavor. Quite a bitter side, opposed to my usual porter, but very tasty. Bitter roast with a rich chocolate background. Good lunch beer.

Very good porter! Nice robust malty chocolate flavor without the typical coffee flavors that overwhelm many porters. Dark roasty flavors and nice medium body.
