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.

"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."

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.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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,
