3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2011 Bottle. Poured a clear dark brown with a large light brown creamy head that was mostly diminishing with some really nice lacing.
The aroma was of a moderate dose of dark roasted malts and a strong leathery yeast with notes of roasted coffee, a touch toffee and molasses.
It tasted lightly bitter-sweet with hints of molasses in the beginning and finished about the same but had a nice coffee presence at the end with flavor lasting only a short time after the swallow.
Mouthfeel was dry in texture and medium in body with a nice soft carbonation.
Overall a nice porter with the flavors one would expect form a brew of this style. Definitely a classic brew here...

Bottled. Medium to dark brown, low head. Nose of cocoa primarily. Rather light, chocolaty flavor. A bit of roast in the finish, but not all that much. Simple but tasty enough.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Marrón rojiza muy oscura. Abundante espuma cremosa y duradera. Aroma ricamente malteado, algo dulce y frutal. Cuerpo medio, bien carbonatada. En boca mantiene el predominio de la malta, con un sabor tostado, que también tiene recuerdo de café en el postgusto. Combina con un cierto toque picante y especiado y un regusto frutal ¿cereza?. Bastante rica, aunque lejos de la pale ale.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown clear color with some light brown foam head. Quite coffee intense smell. The taste is sweet, coffee heavy and kind of particle dusty. Like I imagining drinking strait from the coffee filter. Dry and sweet aftertaste.
