3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap snifter. Poured a dark brown color with an average frothy light brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted chocolate malt and small earthy hop aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted malt bittersweet flavor with a medium complex dark malt bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Solid complex brew.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
10oz on tap at Cock & Bull. Thin head, more of an off-white / greyish tan color. More bitter taste. Decent lace. Clear very dark color. More of a red hue. Medium body. Toasty malts. Some chocolate. Moderate carbonation, with more of a pronounced texture than Iím used to from Oskar Blues. Dry texture all the way through, no silkiness at all in this body. Prominent bitter herbal hop, definite above average hop levels here. Interesting porter in how bitter and hoppy it is, but personally itís not exactly what Iím looking for in a porter.

Draft to snifter. Looks good; an opaque brownish-black with foamy beige head. Smells good too; chocolate and malt with a touch of roast. Tastes like it smells with a touch of hops and a nice, silky mouthfeel. An excellent example of the style.
