3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Actually a pretty limp looking porter, very little head, minimal lacing - mahogany pour. A hefty dose of chocolate, molasses, toasted malts and coffee. Some earthiness and tobacco - aromas last a while. medium bodied w/ low carb a rounded mouthfeel. The sweetness of roasted malts comes through with plenty of chocolate. This is well-balanced with coffee bitterness and spice hop on the finish. I seek out a few of these each winter.

Mmmm. This beer is a chocolate malty goodness! It pours black and has a robust chocolate/roasty aroma. The label is dead on as it has a medium body with a very light and creamy mouthfeel. There is a nice hop bitterness in the finish which really makes this beer! A flavor explosion that goes down quite easily! Very well done!

Bottle. Roasty vegetal malt aroma, maybe a little nutty. Chestnut with a moderate tan head. Sweet roasty malt - not really chocolate, coffee or caramel - it’s malty, but nondescript. Light roasty bitter finish. Medium body and carbonation.
