3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
The beer is a dark brown that is semi clear. The head is medium tan with good retention, good lacing.
The aroma is on the lighter side, mostly coffee coming through.
The taste is the same as aroma, mostly coffee, but not bitter coffee just some simple coffee.
The feel is ok, a little on the lighter side.

Off the cask at Revolution. Flavor is robust, but not overwhelming. Primarily hocolate and caramel notes. Medium-heavy body and mouthfeel. Pretty Smoove.

16 ounce / pint of chocolate malt with alcohol in it....very very tasty....one of the better porters I’ve had lately...which is a lot.....pour a dark brown with robust head which fades rapidly....hard to drink slowly...a great beer if you are a porter / stout drinker....will be back for more

For some reason this was a little bit of a disappointment. It was good but something about it didn’t quite click for me. Flavors a bit flat. I will have to retry. Serving: Tap

Growler, shortly after purchase from brewpub. Pours a rich dark deep brown with and off white head. Aroma of roasted malt and milk chocolate. Nice full bodied mouthfeel pleasnat carbonation. Dominant flavors of malty chocolate. The.sweetness is delicious and balanced. Great lasting milk chocolate flavor.

Sample at the brewpub on 10/15/10. Darkest brown pour with a thin tan head. Aroma of roast, chocolate and a bit of licorice. Fruity and molassesy flavor up front, then licorice, chocolate and roast round it out. Interesting, and pretty tasty.

Draft at brewpub, pours black with tan head. Nose has a rich dense dark chocolate character, grassy hop notes, and coffee. Flavors are much of the same a rich robust porter with good hop presence and really sturdy body. Long chocolately finish leaning slightly sour towards the end. Really nice porter.

tap. initial aroma is quite enjoyable, as a boatload of roast, creamy milk chocolate, and bitter coffee greet the nose. sucker for dry, roasty, porters, and that seems to be what we have here. the chocolate malt gives this some tight roast character. great beer.
