4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Lovely dark brew. Like a true porter, itís smooth easy drinking after work. A fabulous everyday beer for those of us who know that dark beers are not simply a winter phenomenon. Good notes of coffee, toastiness, delicious yum yum time.

Dark brown body with thick brownish head with fair lacing. Strong aromas of dark roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, some cardboard. Body is quite thick , low in carbonation, dry and very bitter. Not well balanced, very bitter aftertaste.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured into an imperial pint glass it fills in nicely with a light coffee color head on top of an almost black body. Has almost a faint coffee smell mixed with malt. A little too far on the malty side for me (although thatís primarily because the taste associates slightly with soy sauce personally). Other than that it was a full and rich beer which I would have again.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle from "the Beer Cave" at the Kane County Cougars stadium in Geneva, IL.. Poured to plastic with a black/brown hue, a modest but frothy, brownish tan head, and a quickly diminishing ring of lacing. Both aroma and taste were chocolate, roasted coffee, and just a touch of woody smokiness. The body was medium to full, with a mouthfeel that had a nice creaminess to it, and no bite to the moderate hop bitterness. Went down smoothly as I enjoyed the game.

Bottle. Pours really dark. Another porter, better than most. Nothing to say really.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. The pour is dark with little head. The aroma is a standard porter, lots of malt. The taste is good up front, a mouthful. Fades a little at the end and all you get is some smoke. A good porter.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours black from the bottle with a creamy kahki head that sticks around. Aroma of coffee and chocolate, with lots of roasty malt. Very smooth mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Coffee and roastiness abound with a hint of chocolate. Hops come in but really fade into a creamy flavorful porter. Very nice beer.
