3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle in Bellevue, ID
Dark black color with light head and no lacing. Nose of robust roast and light coffee, vanilla. The flavor is fairly 2 dimensional, roast and sharp carbonation but has some smoothness to it. Finishes non-creamy and a bit bitter but overall tasty. Nice find!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark clear mahoganey, average sized creamy off-white head. Light chocolately vanilla aroma. It is pretty sweet indeed. Sweet chocolately coffee, with more vanilla. Mouthfeel is ok.... good amount of flavor, but a bit thin on the tongue. Overall, ok, but could be better.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a dark brown in color with minimal head. Aromas of chocolate and coffee yet the flavor was the killer. Way too sweet and sour on the tongue. Probably one of the worst porters I've had.
