3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
This is my first beer from these guys and I get a very good impression that they are going to do good things. Pours almost jet black with a nice beige tan head and light lacing down the glass. Aroma is vanilla, sweet chocolate, and light toffee hints. Taste is smooth sweet malty/toffee with med body and light carbonation. It has a great bittering hop that finishes dry and a lingers just long enough to make you want another sip. Overall not a bad beer at all I could see myself drinking a few more in my near future canít wait to try some more from these guys.

1.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
As a fellow Texan, I picked this beer based on name and appearance alone. While the beer has nearly perfect color and golden foam, it has extreme! bite and is incredibly bitter. The beer was also slightly sour (2 out of 5) and the alcohol presence was overwhelming (3 out of 5) due to the synergy with the bitter and burnt character. My ability to taste falls slightly above average (I am an experienced (2 years) member of a sensory panel), but I am not a supertaster and I could barely get this beer down. My wife tasted the beer and reached the same conclusion. While the visuals are superb, I will spare my palate and definitely not purchase this beer again.

Black pour with a thin Rocky light tan head. Lovely chocolaty aroma with a bit of black roast malt, a kiss of licorice and a earthy roastiness. Full robust meaty flavor of dark roast, some peated black malt, dark chocolate, and a roasty earthy finish with a kiss of coffee.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Black brew with a very thin head that didnít 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 didnít 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...
