3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Pours almost black with a huge, dark brown, very stable head. The aroma on this is great. Malty, roasty, coffee, and chocolate all come through strong and balanced. The taste is similar but not nearly as strong as the aroma promised. Dry and just a bit too watery. If this would have tasted as good as it smelled this could be a real winner. As it is it’s still a pretty good porter.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at the taproom. The best beer these guys do, by far. Dark brown pour with red edges. Smallish mocha colored head. Decent retention and some nice lacing. Nose of espresso beans, coffee grounds, tobacco, cocoa and dark malts. Smells pretty damn good. The taste is a bit disappointing after how good it smells, but it’s still not bad by any stretch. Reminds of a weak cup coffee mixed with hot chocolate. Light to medium bodied, creamy palate. Finish is lengthy, roasted notes all over the place and a sweet milk chocolate ending. I wish they bottled this, I would have brought a few six packs home.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours dark with nice brown head. Medium bodied, with hints of coffee and malt. Bitter when you first start drinking, then it disapates. My favorite beer at this brewery.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz from GodofThunder pours deep brown with a creamy tan head that hangs around for quite a while. Big time roasted coffee aroma and some cream too. Very thin body and not a lot going on. Some burnt coffee at the end and a little bit of sweetness. Very dry and that feeling lingers. Coffee porter gave me high hopes, but maybe I will try again in when in Florida this summer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
I think, by far, the best beer at OBP. Deep brown with a tan head. Robust coffee and chocolate flavors. Slightly oily palate that suits it quite well. Well-bittered on the back end. If I said that it was the best porter brewed locally, I wouldn’t be lying.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Dark coffee pour with minimal lace. Extra roasted coffee, coco. Not overwhelming and balanced bitterness. Medium body. Nice even in humid Orlando.

A lite porter. Lite to medium bodied. Dark in color. Nice aromas. The label is awesome. Tried this at the tap room as part of a sample packet.
