3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle:   Deep caramel, moderate to large foamy sandy head, spotty lacing.   Not that dark for a Porter.   Roasty nose, a little acrid, slight pixie stix like powdery sugar sweetness.   Moderately roasty on the tongue, powdery sugar sweetness, with a strong airiness on the tongue that makes me think this is on the downslope.   Has a slight hoppy background, a little dry and husky too.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Soft roasty finish.   Seems like a Danish Porter given its airy powdery sugar sweetness.   Tiz okay, but seems a little artificial at times.   Meh...   Thanks Bill!

Initially some smoke and hop aroma. Citrus taste, the hops came through. A nice tasty hopped porter, well integrated with a hoppy finish. A few weeks after best date but it was just fine.
A very nice porter, thanks Beerenberger.

This beer pours dark reddish brown with a flavor to match. The roasted hops are evident in the aroma and the very drinkable beer.

Central Market bottle best by 03.17.13. This delivers what it promises: a hoppy porter. I liked how it was well balanced between the piney hops and the dark roast of the porter. Tasty.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown with reddish notes and clear, head and lace were pretty good.
Aroma is a little odd, quite hoppy yet still with roasty and toasty notes.
The flavor follows the nose and isn’t too far off from a typical porter, but with more hops character. Bitterness is about spot on tho, it’s not a porter-IPA mix or anything.
Body is medium with medium carbonation and a roasty finish.
It’s pretty enjoyable. Maybe not my favorite porter, but certainly someone put some effort into this beer.
