3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Opaque walnut brown with a small light tan head. Aroma is malty sweet with a bit of vanilla and roasted coffee. Flavor is dark roasted coffee and malt with a slight nutty sweetness. Finish is a short burst of light hops bitterness and almost charred malt. Medium bodied and creamy on the palate with a nice tingle of carbonation. A little shallow for a porter but still a very nice nice drink.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pretty good stuff. Bittersweet, without being overly sweet. Which is a pleasant change these days. A bit roasty. Sort of going in the direction of Guinness. Easy drinking. Very nice finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Mahogany color with a taller light tan head. Aromas of toasted to roasted malt and hints of coffee and dark chocolate. Dry flavors with some roasted malt and hints of ash. I get the roasted malt just need a bit more pale ale to mix and give this one some added depth. 5/12

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12/24/15. 12oz bottle while in IL for Christmas. I kept thinking the box said "Candy Dancer" and that it was going to be a peppermint porter or something, but it’s not. Which is fine by me. Almost black pour under a small tan head. Roasted malt aromas, coffee, dark chocolate, some fruitiness, light acidity. Smooth flavor, a touch light, hint of coffee and chocolate, caramel, cream. Not bad.

12 oz single bottle into a shaker, purchased at Hy-Vee Wine & Spirits - Muscatine. Dark brown appearance with a small tan head. Aroma of chocolate, toasted/breaded malt, roasted grain and a slight touch of dark fruity esters. Similar flavor, adding hints of coffee, caramel and toffee. Mild malt sweetness balanced by a light to mild bitterness (earthy/roasted) over a medium body. Solid porter overall.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour is a dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is some roast and a bit of sugary sweetness. Flavor is dry and does have a decent roasted malt with some black coffee bitterness. Finish leaves that coffee roast on the tongue after the swallow. This is ok. The best of the 3 I just had from this brewer. Decent roast albeit thin and watery mouthfeel for a porter.
