3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUL 30, 2011 Bottle. Poured a very dark brown with a medium (1-2 fingers) sized creamy tan head that was mostly lasting and had fair lacing.
The aroma was moderately strong with the scent of roasted bread malts, mild resin hops and a dark leathery yeast with notes of dark chocolate, coffee, and molasses.
It tasted nice and malty with a hint of bitterness and a dose of coffee at first and finished with a strong bitter and a mild sweet flavor that had a hint of chocolate at the end. The flavor that was left did not nearly last long enough.
Mouthfeel was medium in body and a little watery yet a tad creamy in texture with a very soft carbonation.
Overall not a bad Porter, although it was rather tasty it could of had a little more body for my liking. With that said I enjoyed it totally and it is definitely worth a try.

Pours mahogany with one-finger off-white head. Aroma contains toffee and apple. Initially quite acrid in the mouth, but then comes a dominant malt roast and almost floral hop bitterness.

12fl oz bottle. Dark ruby brown colour with lovely ruby highlights. Decent tan head lasted well and left nice lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate and espresso. Light to medium sweetness and similar bitterness, touch of astringency. Light to medium body; surprisingly thin but gritty texture; slightly dry but long lasting roasted finish. Glad I tried it but didn’t leave me wanting another one. 7.

A very nice chocolate aroma gives way to a rich delicious flavor. Very easy to drink but worth taking your time with it to savor the flavors.
