Tap. Pours a clear dark brown body with a small tight bubbled light brown head. The nose is chocolaty and roasty with a nice light hoppiness. The flavor is pretty solid, nice chocolate and light roast, a light sweetness. Medium bodied with a little cling and soft fizzy carbonation. Very solid Porter.

Aroma is not very strong here, but displays hints of roast and dark malts. Deep brown color with a stable tan head that drops to a thin film until the end of the glass. Deep sweetness with mild roast character and very light hop bitterness. The body is thinner than I like a porter to have, though still solid enough to satisfy. Finishes clean and has no lingering film on the palate. Luckily I had a 750, so I could see how the beer improves as it warms. Would probably be a great porter on a beer engine.

Really solid porter with all of the expected qualities. Dark mahogany pour with a creamy latte head. Cocoa, roasted coffee bean, vanilla, caramel, and toffee. Loads of malt and a thick, malt-like consistency. Nicely done!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown in color, with a pasty light brown head, this porter really isnít all that attractive in the nose. Thereís a little spice and roast present, but otherwise itís pretty empty. Itís a little sweet in the mouth, like cane sugar, and is somewhat pleasant. Although Iím unimpressed with this beer in general, itís still pretty good. I just donít understand the hype.
