bottle; dark brown-red with medium beige head; aroma-roasty, coffee, fruits, some chocolate but really light; taste-light sweetness, lightly bitter, light body, thin feel, lively. This is a light porter. Not my favorite from the brewery.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
on tap at Miss Lucy’s Kitchen in Saugerties, Ny. poured into a cheater pint
Pours a deep dark amber color with ruby on the edges, foamy 1/2" tan head with good retnetion, educes to a small cap. Nose is kind of bland, light roast and chocolate. This is a well balanced porter, roastiness is the main influence mixed with faint chocolate, flower, slight toast. Medium body, tends to feel a bit flat and thick on the toungue. Finishes dry, I wish it had a tad more carbonation to help.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Woodmans in the Falls. Pours very, very dark brown with ruby highlights and almost no head. Aroma has vinous fruit, earthiness and some chocolate. Taste brings dark fruit, chocolate, some roasted coffee. Not very sweet, but somewhat. Very little alcohol presence. Flavor is a bit thin and finishes quite short. Why is STier disappointing such a large percentage of the time?

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep dark brown with a tan head. Sweet fruit aroma mixed with a chocolate aroma.Pleasant and almost tangy. Fruity chocolate taste with a nice clean finish. Most unusual Porter I’ve had so far as far as taste. Has a clean finish rather than a dry feeling as many in this style do. Mildly bitter. Very well done.

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2012 Nice porter that is on the roasty side of the spectrum. Not a whole lot of sweetness and goes down nicely.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. This seems like more of a brown than a porter in terms of body and color. It does have coffee & chocolate but is thin for the style. Just okay and not one to run back to.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark brown with very little head and lacing. Aroma of moderate amounts of roasted malts and coffee. Smooth taste, but alittle watery. Easy drinking porter.

bottled. Pours dark brown to black, lots of malts and a fair bit of smokiness. Pretty good porter.
