3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark coffee brown with a medium white/tan head. Aroma is of coffee, roasted malt, and chocolate. Moderately bittersweet. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation on the tongue, slightly bitter finish. Overall, very satisfying and surprisingly sweet; sure pleased one who is not overly fond of porters.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle This is another of the 12 beers per month as a gift. This porter is excellent. The porter pours a pitch black with tan head and no lacing. Rich aromas of chocolate and licorice greet you. This is one the best I have had. The medium body porter had soft carbonation. As it sits on the palate chocolate and nuts last long on the tongue.

UPDATED: MAY 15, 2015 Tasted from bottle at 2015 St. Louis Microfest into a willi becher glass. It poured an opaque black colour with persistent beige foam.

Medium body and carbonation, complex aftertaste. Well-crafted and tasty.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a near-black color with a rather large tan head on there. Nose is toastier than it is roasty, but has a nice dry black coffee smell to it. Taste is dark and roasty, and nicely drinkable. Good dry porter and fairly light.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
From a bottle. Pours extremely dark. Hints of malts, coffee, and nuts. Taste of roasted nutty flavors throughout; almost a burnt coffee taste. Not my favorite porter, that's for sure.
