3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rated on 7-01-2013 (Bottled 01-2012) The appearance is a large smooth tan head that mostly diminished, opaque dark brown body and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is cocoa, roasted coffee, chocolate, and malt. The flavor is roasted coffee, chocolate, malt, and a hint of caramel. The mouthfeel is soft carbonation and semi-dry. This beer is light-medium bodied. Overall, a very quaffable Porter with a very tasty flavor. It is worth trying.

Bottled Oct 2013. Pours inky black with a brown head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is chocolate. Tastes of cocoa and coffee. Light/medium body. Not too complex. Smooth and balanced. Finishes mildly bitter. This is a pretty good porter, a little one dimensional.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a bottle. Poured a medium brown with a tan head that had nice retention and lace. Aroma had a nice roasted malt presence and a heavy chocolate presence. Flavor had layers of chocolate some semi-sweet and some dark chocolate which. There was a nice bitterness in the after taste which may have come from the cocoa powder. A really smooth beer that was full on the palate.
