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.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours dark cola, with a huge, chunky tan head.
Aroma is light coffee, lighter chocolate.
Taste is mild coffee, cream, slightly dry cocoa powder.
Tastes pretty good, but it certainly lacks any punch.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black bodied and beige head. Chocolate, cereal, roasted and milk malt base with American moderate hop balance. Doughy milky yeast. Medium body, light roasted taste with again a milky feel, yet not necessarily oily or thick. Good amount of flavour. Nice brew, very high quality and tasty too. (33cl bottle from Beer City)

Not a big fan of this one. Southern Tier has much better offerings. It’s go a nice dark appearance in the glass. Smells of nuts, toast, earthy, chocolate, coffee. Taste of some coffee and chocolate with a smokiness in there. No bitterness. Not something I’d try again, but it was good to test this at least.

bottled - Not all that good. I had Founders Porter right before this and that was much better. Not as much chocolate or coffee notes as you would expect.

12 oz. Bottle. Pours a deep dark mocha with creamy tan head and good lacing. Toasty coffee and bitter chocolate aroma. Body is medium. Bitter coffee and chocolate flavor does not linger, only hangs around on the tongue for maybe a second.

First smell has a strong scent of roasted beans. First taste has a bit sweetness, roasted chocolate and some hints of red fruits. Remarkably well balanced. Recommended.
