3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
35 cl bottle @ home. Pours dark brown with an off-white head that leaves very little lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, milk chocolate, and cocoa. Flavour is much like the aroma – with an ever so slightly bitter finish. A little thin.

Perfectly decent porter. Seems the evening took a Colorado direction. Yep, enjoyed this and it was nice to be able to sit outside. I say sit, I mean stand. I asked a chap with his two friends if we could share his table, to rest a drink on while we chatted. He said no because he was in a big group. Said group must have thought he was as much of a prick as I did as they didn’t join him in the hour I stood next to the fucker.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle; poured a dark brown/black color. Aroma of coffee, cocoa and caramel. All a bit muted however. Flavor was the same. Not bad, but really lacking in depth and assertiveness. A nice touch of sweetness, but just lacking somewhat.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle poured nearly black but actually dark brown with orangish highlights. The tan head is moderate in size and retention. Good lacing.
S: A surprising amount of coffee in the aroma, with plenty of dark roasted malts and a hint of chocolate.
T: Roasted malts, soft coffee, toffee and a little brown sugar. Slightly sweet at the start but turns nearly bitter by the finish
M-- Light-medium body and carbonation.
O: A good porter, not overly sweet despite the apparent dirth of hops.
