Looks like a dark rootbeer, and even has a sprucy hop note in the aroma, with some chocolate. The taste is sour cocoa and malt, with oxidized sweetness into the finish. Not too happy with this one. $2/12oz

Pour with a dark brown and small tan head. Aroma was sweet dark chocolate. Taste nice dark chocolate with an unexpected very pleasant sweetness and just a touch of a citrusy note. Mouthfeel was rich and satisfying. The finish was bittersweet chcolate and roast.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours two fingers of head on a medium brown colored body.
The aroma is pine, chocolate and roasted malt. A wonderful mixture.
The taste is pine bitterness with roasted malt and dark chocolate rounding it out. The level of bitterness is uncharacteristic for the style but it fit well.
The texture is smooth with a crisp finish and moderate carbonation with a little fizz in the middle.
A great porter with a unique twist.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Light chocolate nose, with a bit of coffee, and honey on toast. Dull cloudy brown dishwater color (ugly, in fact). Light roast, chocolate, grainy, some decent hopping, and a bit too much yeast / mid maintains this / finish is lightly bitter. Light body. Overhopped for the body. Very pale and clear. Not really much of a porter.

Draught. Pours an extremely cloudy brown color with a moderate white head on it. Nose is very roasty with some nice coffee elements to it. Taste has some very similar elements to the nose, with the coffee roasting coming through in a very smooth manner.

12 ounce bottle thanks to Mike. Pours a cloudy dark amber colo with a medium tan head. A sweet nose of caramel and big malty fruit. An odd fruity, coconut, caramel, some mocha flavors. Ok. Not a porter. Dry.
