Tap at EBF. A little bit of raspberry in the nose, licorice, beets, hibiscus. Nice pink-orange pour, puffy head. Fizzy, soda-like carbonation, citric acid sourness, light body, lots of fresh berries, very mild.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft @ EBF. Black pour with some tan head. Body of this beer is lacking, perhaps a side effect of the maple syrup, porter is predominantly maple and some warming along with dark malts.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
EBF 2010. POurs a big dark brownish almost black body and a foamy mostly lasting head. Aroma is big rich chocolate, but a bit harsh and acrid, nutty, burnt notes, grass and earthy. Flavor is a bit sweet, maple syrup- earth, a bit meaty, wood, chocolate, nuts, burnt hints and a rich dark chocolate finish with a bit of a thinned out finish from the maple. Ok.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
EBF 2010 Session One: Deep brown pour with a khaki film that retains well. Starchy rich aroma with a mocha presence and a toasted and dry maple presence that’s slightly woody. Creamy body with a richly toasted flavor. Mild roast with notes of wood, dark crystal malts that remain dry and toasted cocoa residuals into the long finish. Rich yet dry- nice!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pouring at session one of EBF in Boston. Pours a murky black with a medium sized tanned beige head. Oddly, a bit of baked potato on the aroma, but I could have been seeking it out. Chocolate, sweet. Roast, and a touch more sweetness. Tasty.
