3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Pours a dark brown body with a medium creamy beige head. Nose is caramel, raisins, dark malts, brown bread and hints of bubble gum, straw and nuts. Taste is bitter herbs, resin, harsh nuts, dark chocolate, cocoa and hints of bread dough. Medium creamy body, soft to medium carbonation. Fair enough, but quite bitter in an unexpected, harsh-like manner which draws the score down somewhat.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The Sampler, Brooklyn 11.2 ounce: Pours dark brown with a light brown head. Aroma is fruity, a bit yeasty, with minimal roast, and some hops. Taste isn’t quite in the territory of a black IPA. Certainly porter with something extra better fits this beer. The hoppiness is pretty light. The berry and fruity tastes are comparatively stronger. The roast is light. There is a light chocolate undertone. Dark bread is certainly there in greatest force.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Rich roast malt flavor, but not "bitter roasty". A dark aged fruit note, a tangy quality. Some hop bitterness in the middle. Dark and murky brown color. The juniper pokes out in the finish, just enough to notice and to add accent to the beer, but not enough to create imbalance. An interesting and fairly complex beer.

A very dry porter with some salty notes. Very bitter, salty dark chocolate. Pours black with good head and lacing. Bitter finish. No sense of caramel. Toasty malt evident with faint hint of toastiness. Tap at Churchkey.
