3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A really roasty and drinkable porter, with a great hoppy bitterness in the finish. Coffee, toffee, toast, almonds and slight spicy esters blend well behind the roasty and slightly sweet chocolate profile.

Chocolate from the bottle not much from the glass on the nose. Light brown by porter standards. Light chocolate no coffee to speak of a bit of a sour on the finish. A little thin and watery. A decent bitter but lacking in body, flavor, and complexity. A very average porter.

Tap @ brewery. Good looking pour with decent mocha head. Nice toasty aromas, dusty pine hops and burnt coffee highlight the aroma. Nice chewy roasted malty body with light caramel and vanilla touches. Fairly well constructed and a tasty brew overall, not outsanding for the style, but solid all around.

Pours dark brown, thin head. Flavor is roasts and chocolate. Watery and thin mouthfeel. Not bad, but nothing to make it stand out.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark dark brown nearly black with hints of ruby in the light. A thin light tan head that doesn’t last at all save a small ring at the edges. Roasty aroma, sort of thin, some chocolate. Body is light and taste is harsh bitter malt flavor then a slight hop finish.

Confused by the low rating. Some people might have drank this brew too cold perhaps? Let mine breath for a bit was pretty complex. Nice dark roast character but medium palate. Some smoke, good.
