3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Poured medium brown with a tall, well-retained beige head. The aroma picked up burnt molasses and dark cane sugar with vanilla and earthy accents. The flavor found burnt black malts, bakerís chocolate, and fruity notes with vanilla bean and sharp roast around.. finished bitter, roasty, and dry. Light-medium bodied with high carbonation and lots of roast on the palate.. hard to swallow due to the carbo.. OK overall.

The beer pours an expected dark chocolatey black. The head lasted for a few seconds but not as long as I anticipated. The aroma is malty but there is a hint of hops that hang out through the aftertaste. Overall the beer is good but not a standout.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle. Donít judge a book by its cover, and donít let bland bottle art ruin your impression of a beer. This beer has all the looks of something youíd find on sale at Jewel, but I was pleasantly surprised by its robust flavor and less-filling delivery. Itís a dark, opaque brown with a continuous layer of foam and lacing on the glass. The aroma is woodsy and the flavor is unsweetened chocolate and nuts. Iíd like to try more from this brewery because they did a good job here.

Dark pore. Malty nose. First taste very hoppy for a Porter. After that a good malt and chocolate flavor. Have had better, but is good.

Bottle. Pours black. Massive tan head that looks like a milkshake. Very malty. Good retention. Mild chocolate mild aroma. Roasty flavor, but not bitter. Mouthfeel is roasty coffee. First bottle of this a week ago was more bitter, but this had nice balance. Not supper thick, but nice drinkable porter.

At the brewery tap house. This was pretty good. Decent malty porter but not overwhelming. Some where between sessionable porter and a chewier porter. Serving: Tap

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled 1/7/2012. Pours crystal clear very dark reddish brown color with a very nice 2 finger dense khaki head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Some good spotty lacing clings to the glass as well. Aromas of milk chocolate, roasted malt, caramel, nuttiness, toffee, biscuit, herbal hops, and slight smoke. Very nice aromas with good strength and balance. Taste of milk chocolate, roasted malt, caramel, biscuit, nuttiness, toffee, light coffee, and herbal spiciness. Fair amount of bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of chocolate, roasted malt, caramel, toffee, light coffee, and herbal spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance malt and bitterness; quite robust and no cloying flavors at all. Medium carbonation and body; with a creamy and very smooth mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with pretty much no warming noticed at all after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice porter. Robust, balanced, and very drinkable. I really enjoyed this one, I donít know what the other reviewers are drinking.
