2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
I keep trying this porter and it keeps staying at one of my least liked. Aroma of slight chocolate, smoke, and coffee. Appearance is a perfect dark reddish brown with tan head. Taste is smokey with some bitterness. The chocolate aroma is missing in the taste making it one dimensional for me. Not a go to porter for me.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The description is perfect for this one- sweet, malty finish with deep malty roasty flavor throughout. Nice flavor and light, carbonated body to keep things sessionable. Good brew.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle from Cash Wise in Williston. Appearance: finger brown head, dark brown color, clear, good lacing. Aroma: chocolate, roast grain, light molasses, light grassy hops. Palate: full body, average carbonation, bitter finish, oily and sticky texture. Taste: sweet roasted malt, light chocolate, into moderate grassy bitterness (in contrast to sweet malt front at least). Overall, aroma is good, but bitterness is out of hand for the style, not a good balance in my opinion. Not too pleasant.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle poured into a pilsener glass. Pours a very dark color, almost black. Creamy tan head with moderate lacing. Sweet, malty odor. Initial taste is nicely balanced hop bitterness with malts, then the smoky, roasted flavor comes to the fore. This smoky taste remains the dominate character of this beer. Nice body, but not really thick. Smooth and creamy. The aftertaste is bitter, but not overbearing. I like this beer.
