3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
It pours a dark brown close to black and leaves a decent half inch white foamy head that immediately dies into the body. The smell is roasted malt, hops and coffee. The taste is bitter as the coffee and hops are taking precedence. The taste is bittersweet between the hops, coffee to the malts, comes through pretty nice. The palate is about a medium with nothing harsh on the tongue. It leaves a bitter and dry aftertaste and finish. Overall, this is a good beer for its style and its good for me, I’d come back to it.

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).
