2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
0.355l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. This is a deep dark ruby red colored one, it also has a small softly lacing dark beige top. Strange nose. Some old sun damaged chocolate and old brownie cake glazing. Sour cocoa butter with yeast and traces of phenol. Not a super aroma, but I think this is quite a old bottle. It has a just above average carbonation level, the small prickling kind and it feels thin oily in the mouth. Doesnít taste all that bad really. Softly roasted with a gentle nice sweetness. Dry cocoa powder, nugatti and itís rounded off with traces of burned sour thin coffee. Quite strange, but actually not bad. Just old. Older than it should be. 15.01.2014

"i was hoping northern Nevada would be represented better than this, especially being that their Angel Creek Amber is so good...but this beer is weak & boring, even if it were classified as a brown. worst porter iíve ever had."
