3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours crimson brown with a rocky tan head. The aroma has cocoa, cream, caramel, vanilla, apples and a light bit of sourness. It has a medium body that’s crisp and has frothy soft carbonation. The flavor begins with dry milk chocolate, roasty malt, light spice and vanilla. The finish has some earthy hops and a berry fruit sort of thing. Decent porter.

Decent but not great. I really like porters to have more complexity than this.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap, last beer of the bunch. Pours a dark brown, with white head. Aroma of chocolate malt, tad roasty. Taste is chocolate, bitter coffee, a little to light bodied, and could use more chocate and less bitterness. Not too bad.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft sample at the Gatlinburg brewpub, dark brown color with tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, light coffee and some smoke. Taste adds notes of milk chocolate, some nuttiness and a dark fruitiness. Medium light body, medium carbonation, rich tasting, sweet with roasty finish. My second fav in this sampling, chocolaty light porter.
