* under cap puzzle translates to: Miami Vice*
Pours oily black with a thin, dark tan head that dissipates quickly.
Prune, dark vinous fruit, coffee aroma.
Smoky, black cherry/ chocolate flavour....malty.
Acidic, sharp and toffee’d.
A very different porter...
Very enjoyable...imperial accents without the higher ABV.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours dark reddish brown with a 2-finger brown head. Aromas of cocoa, caramel, and toffee. The flavor is sweet toffee, caramel, and some burnt instant coffee. Medium carbonation, with a nearly tart feeling, probably from the sour coffee notes. Good.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
This pours a deep black w/ a small head. The nose is chocolate and butterscotch w/ maybe a hint of tart fruits. Flavors of charcoal and dark roast coffee predominate. This is slightly sweet w/ medium carbonation. The texture is decent, medium bodied, but that is the best thing about this beer. This is not good for Stegmaier or for a porter.

Ok on the palate not too thin.
Actually not a bad traditional style porter. A surprise from this contract brewer.
