3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Pours a dark black color with a light tan head. Aroma of bitter roasted coffee, slightly burnt, notes of charred wood and tobacco. Taste is less charred, has some sweet sugary malt in back, a faint touch of wood. Decent blend of coffee and roasted malt. Light body, soft and smooth, assertive carbonation.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
On cask. Viscous, creamy body. Roasty grains accent the silky coffee notes which reach my nose and palate. Isn't too bold on the coffee front. Delicious, sessionable. Moar please!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Craft and Growler in Dallas. Pour is clear brown with a small tan head that quickly dissipated. Roasty, chocolatey, sweet vanilla, dark fruity, bready, somewhat earthy, and licorice in the aroma. Taste is light coffee, toasty, bready, dark fruity, raisins, toffee, caramel, and figs. Medium body with medium carbonation. Decent porter, although really not much of a coffee presence.

A little light for a porter and not what I’m used to for this . Not much body and taste kind of stale.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle compliments of Crajun, sampled with friends last weekend and rated by notes taken. Aroma of sweet malt, watered down coffee and yeast. Appearance seems a bit light for the style. Sweet malty taste seemed to lack the coffee punch that I hoped for. I get more of a mocha/ chocolate flavor. Dry finish. Not at all bad, just had higher expectations.
