3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
An average porter. A nice roasted aroma. Deep brown color with minimal lacing. The roasted malts I tasted are preferable to the heavy sour malts of some porters. I detected a slight earthy and chocolate tone as well. The palate was a little light. The uniqueness was not there.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at the brewery. Pour is clear brown with a small tan head and decent lacing. Roasty, earthy, lightly grassy, a touch of cocoa, and coffee in the aroma. Taste is this weird tangy, dirt, and coffee mixture - somewhat grassy and dark fruity. Light body with medium carbonation. Something is really off with this one.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing.
Body is dark brown.
Aroma is moderately malty (chocolate, roasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers), with a note of vanilla, light note of leather.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Decent and free from flaws, but pretty plain (and too lastingly sweet to be a good session/quaffing beer).

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Nose gave away right away that this had a major DMS problem...and this was on tap at the brewery. First taste confirmed it with butter overwhelming any hints of toast or chocolate malt. Flat out terrible.

Can. Pours a dark brown with a half finger of rapidly settling, light tan head. Thon, stringy lacing. Aroma is malty, sweet, chocolatey, alcohol. Flavor is sweet, malty, mildly roasted, dark malt, nutty, rich but mellow/smooth chocolate, mildly fruity finish. Super drinkable. Soft carbonation, medium body, and very smooth texture. A pleasant, mildly roasted, chocolatey, mellow porter, delicious.
