3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Black brew with a very thin head that didn’t hold. Smells of roasted and chocolate malts. Taste is roasted and chocolate malts with a mild off burnt taste. Decent porter but for the BIG price there are better ones that cost less. *side note: noticed others saying they got a nice head and such. Maybe my bottle just didn’t turn out right. If I am feeling up to another $7 bottle in the future I might have to check this one again.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
22 oz. beer served in a shaker- poured a non transparent solid black color, one finger tan/black head formed but quickly and quietly went away to a 2mm thick one after you tell it that it lost a war. Aroma of lightly roasted malt, veggie oil, and some chocolate-meh. Hits the mouth with a medium body, dark chocolate is everywhere, almost sweeping the malt away, a chalky sensation in the middle laced with cinnamon, finish has some smoke. Meh...

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle:   Deep deep brown, thin to moderate frothy pale tannish head, spotty lacing.   Soft roasted malts, a little lactose tartness, some coffee beans and bakers chocolate.   Very pale roasted malts up front.   A little tin like.   Not a lot of hop to this one.   Very minor dark or bakers chocolate.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Comes across as very pedestrian by the finish, not big on any Porter aspect.   A lighter example, with a slight metallic/tin note.   Meh...   Thanks Bill!
