12 ounce bottle pours a dark darker black color with a nice foamy tan head that dissipates slowly. Aromas of coffee and toffee. Coffee and dark chocolate flavoring high level of carbonation. Medium bodied. A bit of a harsh aftertaste.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Smells delicious, notes of dark roasted malt, metallic, soy, tarry notes. Completely black with a rapidly fading dark brown head. Delicious beer, upfront more metallic and roasty notes in the taste, finishes with leafy hops and a building bitterness. Not too sweet. Medium bodied and average carbonation. Tons of flavor for the ABV and those that I personally like -- a great Porter.

2.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Black brew with a small head that didn’t hold for long. Smells of roasted malts with some hints at coffee. Taste is roasted and chocolate with the hints at coffee but also a spicy hop bite to it. Not really a fan of porters with so much hops. The hops make me think that someone poured an IPA in with my good porter just to mess with me.
