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.

Nitro. Creamy near white tan head. Black body. Gently malt aroma. Taste is a nice light roast malt. Not super sweet. Just a tiny bit bitter from the malts. Creamy body. The light flavor maes it feel a little watery, but it’s still good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep brown color with quite large creamy, tan foam. Aromas mainly of malts which branches out to smootch sweet chocolate, light caramel and very subtlie coffee hints. Although do pick up very slight acidic notes. Palate, medium body, thick and smooth texture leaving very smooth but light roast malt/chocolate finish. Taste is very smooth and easy of chocolate and bit of light coffee, not too complex. Overall, quite nice porter, although it is a stile I have not explored much of yet. But this definatly was nice, would like bit more of thickness to it but then it would taste like a stout? Not sure, it is definatly nice and enjoyable but not to heavy going either + awesome label!

12 oz. bottle. Black, with a slight ruby hue, and a big, foamy, tan head that leaves lots of lacing. The nose is reasted malts, bitter chocolate, caramel, pine, and a bit of rosemary. Sweet and malty, with some roasted bitterness and a touch of hoppy bitterness. Medium to heavy body, syrupy, creamy, and a bit sharp. Overall, this is a pretty nice, well-made porter.

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.
