650ml bomber pours a deep black color with a finger and a half of light brown head that leaves some decent lacing on the side of the glass. Aroma is chocolate and roasted grains with some dark fruits. Taste is a roasted grain and hop bitterness balanced nicely with a chocolate and dark fruit sweetness. Medium bodied with decent carbonation that satisfies the palate. A very satisfactory porter which is sure to please most beer lovers taste buds.

Red brown pour slight tan head. Aroma of soil, lactic acid, cream, horse grain, coffee. Tastes really grainy wheat toasted acid. Watery palate. Could use more body. Seems like a authentic light bodied vintage porter.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Really enjoying this one, and am surprised by the low ratings. Almost "stout lite." Strong mocha notes in the base stouts. Carries through . . . . forever. Just good, and recommended.

Nice dark brown with a sheet of light cocoa powder foam. Smells of sweet malts and some nutty character. Some toast and Graham on the nose. Flavor is sweet cocoa, leather, some rye bread a bit of coffee and some pleasant soil hints.medium on full bodied with a good soft carb and some dryness on a mostly watering finish. I really fund the mouth feel here outstanding.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at college inn. Deep dark pour, tan head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted coffee. Taste follows, with nice roast bitter finish, mildly sweet. Smooth texture, surprisingly full body, average carbonation. Overall: I'm impressed by how tasty this is. Feels more like a stout to me (if there's really any diff b/w stout and porter in the first place).

On tap at the GJBF Osaka. Fantastic creamy chocolate notes to this porter. A full bodied smelling beer with a small tan head & a dark clear brown. Wow, the flavor gives you more roastiness and coffee but with a chocolate backbone. A delicious beer for 5.1% with great balance. Frikin’ excellent.
