3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pint can from the Flying Saucer in Little Rock, AR. Pours a deep brown colored body with a finger-width, creamy, brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is roasty with a light dark chocolate sweetness, earth, and a few hints of dark fruit. A bit of a licorice character to this as well. Flavor is similar. Pretty heavily roasted with a light dark chocolate sweetness, touches of dark fruit and licorice, and some burnt malts. Finishes dry, roasty, lightly sweetened, and fairly earthy with a medium-light bitterness. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium-light body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid porter. Roasty, earthy, and somewhat burnt with a nice, light sweetness to balance. Not bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma of burnt caramel and malt. Pours a dark brown with an mostly lasting tan head and minimal lacing. The taste is a nice combination of sweet vs. bitter. Sweet fruit initially followed by roasted malt and a nice bitter finish. Medium body with medium carbonation. Overall, I liked this porter.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The color of this beer is gorgeous, for it is a deep brownish red with a small white head. Also, the aroma of the beer is interesting as a combination of caramel and roasted chocolate. The taste and palate make for a intriguing combination: there is a sweet yet bitter taste of a stout mixed with a light body, thin texture, abrupt finish, and soft carbonation.

It poured a nice solid dark, dark brown color with a small frothy tan head. The aroma was of thick roasty malt with some dark chocolate sweetness. The taste was quite similar with a huge milk coffee flavor and a hint of burnt wood. A decent Porter, good job.

Liked this new porter - reminded me a little of Founders in overall flavor profile, but not quite as complex smell or taste-wise, and a little more watery in the palate. Still, a nice beer.
