3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a deep brown color almost black. Aroma is of light coffee, with a mild fruit medley smell. Taste has a chocolate film on the palate, with a slight bitter aftertaste. A cola type look and flavor to this beer that makes it very drinkable and light for a porter. A good complex beer that I’d have again.
