3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample at Lizardville. Black pour with a medium tan head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast malt and coffee. Light-bodied with a roasty character of coffee and malt, with a slightly tart fruit flavor in the background. The finish is roasty with a coffee aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour dark brown with a nice, fluffy light brown head. Aroma is creamy, roasty and a little chalky. Taste is dry; creamy and roasty with a light coffee finish. Oily. Some nice lacing. Not bad but not flavorful enough.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This bottled brew from a restaurant poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized light brown colored bubbles that were and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque dark brown colored body. The aroma was roasted malt and toasted malt. The semi-flat mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish with a biting roasted malt hop aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of roasted malt mild hops and dark malt. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Maybe a bad batch, but very, very over-carbonated. Every bottle practically exploded upon opening and each pour was consumed with tons of foam as a result. More on the bitter side and dry. Maybe if someone else spends the money, Iíll try it again. Definitely not a re-purchase for me.

Taster at the brewery. Dark pour, slight head. Good mouthfeel, but seems to lack some of the stout roasted/coffee flavoring, or maybe Iíve had too many coffee stouts lately.

Draft to taster. Looks good; black with nice head. Smells alright; lightly Marty. Tastes decent with an average mouthfeel. Okay, but I wouldnít seek it out again.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle purchased at Party Source. Darkest brown pour with a huge tan head. Creamy malt and chocolate nose with a strange oxidized and lightly infected odor. Malty flavor with some slight funk that doesnít belong before a dry, roasty coffee finish. Must have gotten a bad bottle and by looking at the other ratings, that doesnít seem all that uncommon. Will try again when a fresh batch comes out.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours pitch black with a nice rich caramel head. Light to medium roast aroma with a hint of chocolate and coffee. Slight bitter with a medium to heavy sweetness. The body is medium to full with a creamy, thick texture and a somewhat sweet finish. This porter is pleasing to the eye and mouth and it is one that I will buy again, even if it has to be at the bar.

12oz bottle - pours black with light brown head and tiny trace of lacing. Nose is roasted caramel malts and coffee. Flavor is a disappointment - I donít know what it is but it accelerates the dryness (seemingly artificially). I have a feeling I will drink the other 5 as a last resort.
