3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours opaque black with a thin foamy tan head which fades to very little lacing. Aroma is of coffee, roasted malts, dark coco, molasses, and some sourness. Taste is similar to the aroma. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi bitter, semi dry, medium-long finish. Overall, a pretty nice porter that has some nice coffee notes and it pretty drinkable.

Not a bad beer. Aroma was terribly weak. Could pick up subtle hints of coffee but hard to detect. Pour was a nice deep dark brown with a thin tan ring for a head. Luckily the taste was a lot stronger than the smell. Nice coffee flavor with a slight hoppiness. Chocolate comes out a little in the flavor. A little thin and slightly watery, but for a 5% beer this isn’t bad. Mild carbonation.

Notes from Reading Tap Room, Oct 26, 2013. Nice coffee flavor but this was just way too thin. Good coffee porters start as good porters and I doubt I would have rated this porter very highly without the coffee. Pass.

Sort of like day old coffee, kinda thin and watery with just a hint of sweetness. Ok I guess.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rich deep dark brown coloured body with a thinnish, one centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of coffee, roasted malt, nuts and a bunch of earth. Medium to Light-bodied; Strong coffee flavour at first with some maple syrup and a touch of toffee, all with a lot of alcohol and even more bitterness. Aftertaste shows some richness from the coffee, a good amount of roasted malt and a faint instant coffee like flavour. Overall, a decent coffee based porter that is a touch watery, but not bad at all. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle brought after a hockey game by Ed (from Philadelphia) on 15-January-2014 in Arlington, Virginia - Thanks Ed!
