3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a very dark reddish brown with a small bubbly tan head. Light coffee notes on the nose, good bit of milk chocolate and cocoa, and lots of toasted malt. Nice roasty taste, milky chocolate, somewhat hoppy, and nice roasted light coffee flavor. Great chocolate flavor, but I would have liked to have tasted some more coffee though.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled from backlog notes. Pours dark brown to black in color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma and flavor have some roasted malt, bigger chocolate, some dark fruit, cocoa powder, a touch thin but I guess this is a porter, so maybe not that bad, I always find the Side Project stuff interesting.

Palate is light to mdeium, watery with a lively carbonation. Lots of dark chocolate in this tasty Porter.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Jester King Zwanze Day. Dark brown pour with a brown head. The aroma is very nutty with some chocolate and roasted malt. The flavor is more of the same. I get a lot of hazelnut and chocolate notes, as well as some roasted malt and cream. Medium to thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

"Tootsie Rolls and lightly bitter dark chocolate in the nose and flavor. Smooth palate but a little thin. The porter part is just ok, the chocolate great. If this were an imperial stout or more robust porter, this would be epic."

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark fizzy pour. Dark color. It’s fizzy and over carbonated. It’s really over carbonated. I could describe other things, but nothing else really matters.
