3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 10, 2010 12-oz bottle. Toasty aroma with some hints of prune and bread. Dark brown color with reddish cast. Stiff brown head with legs. Bitter and mildly sweet at first. Roasted to the point of ashiness. Sour cherry and apple notes. Bitterness mellows and then deepens on the finish. Pretty clean however. Medium to light body with some astringence on the front. High drinkability. Changed my opinion about this beer after several bottles. It grows on you but it is still just slightly above average.

Drank from the bottle. Aroma consists of roasted nuts, coffee, vanilla, caramel, and cereal. Taste is sweet and revolves around the coffee and roasted nut flavors. Medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation and a sticky mouth feel.

First impression- dissapointed, look like more dunkel than porter.
Pours clear, reddish brown with dark, beige soapy top, some lasing too. Aroma- malty and malty with hints of vanilla, a bit chocolate, little clean, yeasty seems too. Taste- medium sweet with gentle toasted bitter, light dry finish. Medium bodied, watery texture, mild carbonation. Boaring and too casual for such price.
