4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
One of my favorites from this brewery. Full bodied and good for the autumn / winter season. Poured from a bottle. Could have slightly more carbonation... Slightly..
I like this beer and have purchased it multiple times and will continue to do so.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown color with a small tan head on it. Nose is sweet and caramel with some chocolate in there. Taste has some roasting in it, but has a lot of sweetness in the finish without much else to balance it out. Not a great example of a porter.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Served in a Laughing Skull pint glass at the brewery.
Relatively lively carbonation for a porter, yet smooth. Medium+ body.
Very dark reddish brown. Clear, with a thin tan head that rapidly reduces to a lasting ring. Quite nice looking but a bit light and red for a porter.
Aroma: Lots of dark malt and coffee with just a hint of spicy hops.
Taste follows nose, although the coffee is less pronounced until the finish. Some dark chocolate too.
Good flavor and aroma, easy to drink, but lacking complexity and depth.
