3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap in sampler: Not getting all the love for this one. Pours black with a thin tan head. Aroma of chocolate and coffee. Taste is predominantly coffee, but with some chocolate, and lots of water. Mostly water actually. Thin body, not much going on here. It’s not bad, but it’s very lacking.

Black pour with a thin khaki head and sticky lacing .... nice aroma of dark bakers chocolate, coffee and roasted malts .... coffee is potent in this one .... taste is of bitter dark chocolate, coffee, roasted malts very bitter and coffee like brew .... has a very bitter dark roasted dry finish with a long lingering bitterness ... the dark chocolate and coffee flavors are very solid in this brew ... has a thinner mouthfeel

Draft at Milk Boy. Black pour. Strong foamy off-white head. Tastes like watered espresso. Hints of chocolate and dark fruit but coffee dominates. Slim aroma. Medium-bodied Porter. Good stuff but lacking gravity.
