3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap. Pours a clear dark brown with ruby highlights and a one finger lasting tan head that leaves great lacing. Aroma of chocolate, light roasted malt, and light caramel. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium creamy mouthfeel with a medium amount of bitterness. A wonderfull Porter.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Probably my favorite beer from these guys. Pours a very dark brown, with a light brown head. Looks medium to full bodied. Some toasted malts, a little chocolate, and a mild roastiness all filled the air around the glass. The roast really showed up in the flavor, with a decent amount of coffee, some mild chocolate and dark malts were there too. Very creamy mouthfeel, that seemed to drink really easy. Not a very strong beer, but it left a good impression on me.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub 1/1/07: Pours a barely transparent dark mahogany with a nicely-lacing, wispy light tan head. Aroma of sweet caramel and chocolately malts with a touch of roastiness. Body starts sweet and milk chocolatey with nice roasty coffee flavor for balance and a touch of biting carbonation before a thinner finish.

On tap at the new brewpub. Poured Dark Brown with a medium brown head. Aroma was heavily roasted with chocolate and coffee. Flavor was a rich chocolate, coffee, and plenty of roasted goodness. Really good malty body. Outstanding porter.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Pours dark brown/black with some red highlights. Aroma is not very strong at all - smells watery but there is a hint of some malts and maybe choclate. Taste is pretty watery too with some chocolate and a bitter finish. Not bad.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at TBBC. Extremely smoky nose, some caramel malts. Appearence is dark and almost opaque with a thin white ring. HEAVY smoke, some chocolate and coffee. Way too smoky, like licking an ash tray.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lots of good roasted aromas and flavors in this one. A darn good porter. This beer is smooth and generally well rounded.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at TBBC. Very dark brown pour, almost black with a pretty, thin tan head with gleeming white froth, like milk atop a fresh cappucino. Aromas of caramel, hour old coffee, vanilla, leather, big cocoa, roasted malts and a little oakiness. Taste was similar, focusing on the coffee and chocolate, somewhat stout-like. The palate of this beer is like an American porter, not the English style they were shooting for. Long roasty finish, damn fine porter. Probably the best beer they make.
