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.

"Pretty decent porter. Nice roasted malt, coffee, light chocolate dark fruit aroma. Flavor also has hints of nuts and Carmel. Feel would be very smooth but for a slight overcarbonation, leaving it just a touch pricklier than wanted. Finishes semi sweet and dry."

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very tasty porter. Malts, chocolate, coffee, nutty. Deep deep roasted nutty flavors throughout- almost a burnt coffee flavor. Very bold flavor and if you’re not into the heavy coffee notes this might not be for you. Sweet, a wee bit bitter.

Bottle: Super dark with an off-white head. Aroma of burnt wood, semi-sweet chocolate. Taste is initially sweet like chocolate cola with a malty aftertaste. Fairly thin body and doesn’t seem to have the slick oily feel of many porters. Ok,
