3.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 Oz bottle. Pours black with a big tan head. Nice, dark malt aromas of brown sugar, molasses, chocolate and raspberry. Flavor is sweet up front, with berry notes. Morphs to mild roasted malt character with nice coffee. Finishes with a velvety, bitter roasted linger. Full body with a thick mouthfeel and mild carbonation. Overall, a tasty Porter. Great aromas, but fairly simple flavor profile.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz can poured into a shaker. Aromas of coffee, grass, and caramel come through as well as a floral touch. It pours a dark, opaque caramel brown color with a tan, even, small-bubbled head. A thick ring with a sudsy surface is retained and a messy lace is left on the glass. The taste is a medium sweet and light bitter combination. The oily beer has a medium malty body with a soft and sudsy carbonation. Coffee, chocolate, figs, and plums come through on the palate with a floral, herb, and spice finish. Clean and fresh chocolate and grass notes stick around in the aftertaste. Overall, there’s a noteable spice note that stands out (for a porter).

A can I picked up at the South Loop Binny’s in Chicago as part of make your own mix 6-pack for 10$. 6.8% It pours pitch black with a beige head of foam that leaves spotty lacing behind. Served in a snifter it has a sweet savoury chocolate aroma with hints of smoked honey glazed ham. Medium to full bodied with a fairly smooth mouthfeel. The taste is meaty dark bitter chocolate, a hint of smoked ham, very savoury and sweet with a mildly roasty semi-dry finish. This is really nice.
