3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown with a large tan head. The aroma is full of milk chocolate with some roasted malt thrown in. I also get a slight him of coffee in the aroma. The flavor is similar. There is a bitter roasted malt and chocolate quality that really comes through strongly. Medium mouthfeel and medium to high (prickly) carbonation. A very nice porter. My only minor complaint is that I wish there was a little less carbonation.

3.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma of roasted malt, meat, coffee, and chocolate. Pours a deep black with a none lasting tan head and minor lacing. The taste is roasty, meaty, slightly bitter coffee, a hint of sweetness and a nice bitterness in the finish. Medium- full body with medium carbonation. Overall, a very robust and enjoyable porter.

Bottle. Pours black with tan head. Aroma has a hint of smoke with a strong dark roasted grain presence. Flavor is much the same with a hint of bitter sweet chocolate and signs if earthy hop in the finish. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Well made brew!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Strong hints of coffee with nodes of milk chocolate to follow.
From a presentation stand point it is beautiful, pitch black body and a tan head. The smell reminds me of putting my nose into a bag of ground coffee.

The darkest of beers. The tan head lasts longer than you do. The aroma hints at complexity begging you to distinguish between the rich malt, caramel, maple, chocolate, and healthy dose of hops, whose bittering power keeps all that nasty sweetness in check. Its a full bodied, full flavored malt beer, but bitter enough to be good... very good in fact. The only mystery is it leaves a clean glass.
