3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Pours a very dark brown color with a fluffy tan head which fell to a thin layer that left some lace. Roasted malt dominates the nose with a touch of coffee and a sweetness of chocolate. The taste is full of milk chocolate, coffee and roasted malts with a little smokiness and dark fruit. Thereís a mild hops presence that provides a little bit of balance. Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, sticky and very dry finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   Nearly black, soft sandy colored head, frothy, little bits of lacing.   Ashy licorice and prune like aroma.   Some roasted malt character as well.   Lots of ash on the tongue, roastiness and licorice are
minor.   Has a bit of stale or earthy prune as well.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Finishes a bit soily, ashy, slight oily prune thats well over ripened with soft roasted malt character.   Not bad.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pint at the Plaza. This is a really satisfying porter, actually. It has an even roasty espresso bittersweetness with judicious hop use. The palate is spot on for the style. Even flavors of cacao and espresso hit the tongue. Finish is balanced and bold enough. This is a good stock American porter.

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.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle poured a deep dark brown hue w/ big tan slowly diminishing creamy head leaving a nice cap w/ good lacing. Mild malty aroma. Initial flavor is a very light sweet with a subtle bitter finish of short duration. Taste is predominately the roast, which Iíd describe as a medium roast, there isnít a burnt French roast to the beer which to me is nice. Subtle coffee and chocolate notes. This is a solid straight forward porter. Medium bodied, creamy texture, soft carbonation, and light alcohol in the finish.
