4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A nice opaque brown body with a tan head that had some retention and lace. Aroma had a nice roasted malt character. Rich coffee and cocoa dominated the aromatics. Some sweetness to it was just enough to take the edge off. Flavor was robustly malty. Good coffee notes upfront, dark cocoa and there was a nice pipe-tobacco quality to it. Very dry on the finish and very good.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Quite impressive porter. Pours dark brown with a yellow-hued head. Could almost classify as a stout in taste: rich mouthfeel; coffee notes; roasted malt backbone. Overall, an incredibly solid beer.
