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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is light, roasted malt, coffee, some chocolate. Appearance is dark brown, light tan head. Taste is super light, a light roasted malt, light chocolate, coffee, nothing. Mouthfeel is thin, light to medium body with light carbonation, aftertaste fades quickly. Overall, this is about par for a porter.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle into tulip glass, opaque dark brown color, some reddish hue, with tan head. Aroma notes of heavy roasted malt, light coffee and chocolate and a tad smoke. Taste adds more coffee/chocolate, ash and light earthy bitterness. Light-medium body, moderate carbonation, lively, tad astringent with short earthy roast finish. Solid porter but nothing really stands out, which is nice sometimes.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark mahogany pour with thin off-white top and minimal lacing. Rich aromas of malt, roast. Flavors are malty with just a bit of smokiness. A bit too carbonated and thin to really get a good rich mouthfeel though. Not bad, but there are better close by on the shelf.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle in pint glass from Downtown Discount Beverage in Dover, NH. Aroma is light bready malt with hint of grassy hops. Appearance is very dark mahogany--almost opaque, with surprisingly robust sparkle and 1 finger-width foamy head and nice minimal lacing. Taste is more lightly sweet than lightly bitter with a lingering pleasant long bitter finish. Palate is medium bodied with thin texture, average carbonation. Overall, I’ve come to expect a lot from this brewer and thought they’d knock this out of the park. It is OK but there are a lot of better porters out there.

@BeerTemple , Amsterdam, 30/5/2015 - Aged Porter van 2012 die 3 jaar in de kelder heeft gestaan... schenkt zwart met bruine kraag. Aroma van koffie, chocolade, gebrande mout, best ok. Smaken zijn direct bij de eerste slok al opvallend dun, hmmm dat voor een aged bier..... erg dun allemaal.... verder uiteraard de koffie, bittere chocolade, vanille, weinig aging kenmerken.... erg vlak en flets allemaal.... bittertje in de afdronk en wat droog.
