3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Awesome aromas of dark chocolate, smoke and strong coffee. Taste is bitter with hints of the chocolate and coffee shining through and the charred malt and coffee contributes to the bitterness. Good but needs more depth.

Bottle from clt85. Thanks Lane. I wasn’t that impressed with this one. Not much coffee and a little bland and thin porter

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle courtesy of clt85. Thanks. pours a dark brown color with a small beige head that soon recedes to a fine film. The aroma is big and bold with coffee and chocolate. The taste features strong coffee, mocha and bitter baking chocolates. The palate is thinner than I would prefer and the carbonation is soft. Finishes medium in duration and dry. Overall: Awesome on the nose, but mouthfeel needs work--the thin palate distracts. That aside its a very good porter.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours black brown tan head. Smell is sweet roasted malts, almost touch lactose, sweet flavored coffee. Taste is metal, coffee, with a just a touch or tart tinge. Ok but the metallic start and finish to beer makes it a one time venture.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From bottle. Nice coffee aroma with chocolate, molasses, and some carbonic gaseousness. Light oxidation notes. Dark brown-black clear with thin creamy tan lacing head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Starts moderately sweet with chocolate, coffee, and molasses. Medium hop bitter finish with bitter nutty after and light lingering sweetness.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Happy hour... Bottle. Just terrific aroma of freshly brewed coffee. Taste is the same, nice bitter coffee paired with dark roasted grain. Chocalate bitterness lingers, but similar to previous reviews, body ultimately is a bit thin. A richer body would have made this almost perfect.
