3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. Clear reddish brown with a thin creamy tan head. Huge coffee, syrup, butter scotch and chocolate aroma and taste. The butter and butter scotch flavors dominate; it’s diacetylic as fuck! I don’t mind the flavor, but if you do, beware.

Draft. Brown beer with a tan head. Buttered popcorn aroma. Flavor of lots of butter and some malt. Medium-light bodied. Butter and light malt lingers with light darker malts.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A - The beer pours a dark brown with some ruby coming through around the edges making them slightly clear. There is a finger of frothy tan-brown head that forms atop and fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some decent lace.
S - The aroma is a mix of roasted chocolate malts with some light burnt notes and a touch of vanilla. There is also a bit of earthy hop mixed in as well.
T - The beer hits the tongue with a mix of roasted chocolate malts and a touch of vanilla and deeper burnt notes. There is also just a hint of earthy hop mixed in. Through the middle, more roasted and chocolate flavor comes through with a bit more earthy flavor. The finish is a mix of sweet and roasted malts, some lightly burnt flavors, and some earthiness that lingers.
M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. It is smooth with a super slick and roasted finish.
D - Very drinkable. Nice sessionable porter that goes down very smooth. Could have used just a bit more boldness.
