3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Blind Tiger, pours dark brown / black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out toasted malt upfront, not much else. Flavour is along the same lines, with a meaty quality to the toasted malt. Big body despite the low gravity. Not especially complex but a thick feel in the palate. Very good.

Nice color and aroma.I missed the sweetness but must add there was no bitter either. It’s a fair porter...has no real distinction forward to compliment.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can pour into nonic pint glass from Julio’s Liquors. Appearance is dark brown with mahogany tinge, no discernible sparkle, finger-width foamy light brown head with poor retention and no lacing. Aroma is strong toffee, roasted malts, mild chocolate and vanilla. Taste is sweet roasted malts with mild chocolate, dark fruits, late roasted bitterness. Palate is medium bodied with thin, creamy texture, lively carbonation and mix of sweet and bitter roasted malts. Overall, not as chocolatey as advertised but nice nonetheless. Better as it warms.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from VE. Nose sweet and dark, lightly scorched with sweet caramel. Pour brown that accumulates to black in the glass, foamy light brown head. Taste heavy chocolate with light-medium mineral character, faintly airy, excellent persistent low bitterness with good hard roast, light sweetness that also persists, flourishing red berry. Lightly tart, smooth and slightly creamy, full but not fat body. Malt a little straightforward but this is a drinkable, classic porter. [2016.09.14: 3.4]
