12oz bottle, Winter Mix 2012. Pours dark brown. Aroma of chocolate. Full flavored, nice roast. It really tastes like a Porter should. Most Porters finish like a Brown Ale. This is nice, and inexpensive. (3796).

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle thanks mike67. Pours black with a medium tan head. Aroma and Taste is of sweet roasted caramel malt, with some mild slightly burnt coffee with some mild bitterness. Palate is a medium body with moderate carbonation. Finishes with a roasted caramel malt and some burnt coffee flavor and mild bitterness same as taste. Not as robust as some other Porters but overall a good porter.

Bottle. Pours black with a thin tan head. Molasses aroma. Sweetness at the beginning with big roasty nutty flavor. Lots of bitterness at the end from the chocolate malt and coffee like. Porter is one of my favorite styles and this is a good one.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black with a thin tan head. Aroma is raisins, toffee, and damp leaves. Flavor is a bit sour; not as bitter as it should be. Thin viscosity, kinda watery mouthfeel. Not a particularly good example of a porter, but it’s not horrible either.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Faint roasted malt aroma. Medium-full body with satisfying coffee and other dark malt flavors. A bit of sweetness in the middle, then slightly dry finish. Very tasty but still somewhat underwhelming.
