3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft @ Whole Foods. Pours a deep, dark cola color with reasonable clarity; thin, medium-tan head with light lacing. Rich, roasted coffee, brown sugar, and dried dark fruits. Medium body; moderate CO2; no overt alcohol. Lots of well-roasted coffee, caramelized sugar, and chocolate notes; roastiness serves as the main bittering component, with a light, nondescript hop character; nice balance in the mouth. Long-lasting finish: brown sugar, roasted malts, milk chocolate; lightly sweet.

Bottle shared by Marcus. Pours ruby brown with a transient light tan head. Strong, strong coffee aroma. There’s so much coffee in it that it suggests chewy bitter. Amps down a bit with time. Simple and tasty. Extreme beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. Bottle to snifter. Brown pour with a kahki thin creamy head that dissipates to a collar. Aroma is vibrint coffee (very strong) and roasted malt. Taste is pure coffee that is alittle bitter, but tasty and good malt maybe even a faint coco taste as well. Palate is thin to medium feel with a subtle fizzy feel and finishes dry. This is pretty tasty and the coffee is very noticable.

Sample at the brewpub. Clear dark brown with a thin beige head. Aroma of Kona coffee, chocolate and roast. Flavor is robust bitter coffee with a bit of chocolate. Not subtle and that’s just fine.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours dark brown with some ruby tinged edges when held up to the light. The aroma is really inviting with a heavy roasted coffee presence, some nuttiness. The flavor is dry and roasted with lots of coffee and nuts. The body is a bit thin, but very tasty.

Another unimpressive porter from Six Rivers. This was the only beer that I gave a 5 for appearance though as I thought it looked exactly like it should in the glass. Good head and some lacing left on the glass.
Very watery palette and not a ton of the coffee or chocolate flavor I was waiting for.
