3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at a bar in downtown Santa Fe. Really a great porter. Ordered up a second one, and then a third, which is really rare for me for porters. Usually I’ll have one, then move on to something else. But these were going down so good I stuck with it and had a great session.

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. Crisp graininess, caramelly, toasty, mildly roasty. Great aromatic/biscuity malt notes. Hints of coffee, chocolate, dark fruits, slight tartness. Nice English ale esters. 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.
