3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is one of those porters that blurs the line between porter and stout. An opaque black except around the edges, the head is hard to stir up and doesn’t last long once roused. The aroma is rich dark chocolate and espresso. The flavor has a bit of milkiness, brown sugar and cookie that make for a tasty porter. This is really good and much better than I was expecting actually.

Cerveza negra con espuma cremosa como la de un expresso. Muy cremosa pero con gas vivo. Sabor café, chocolate, especiado. Muy interesante y compleja para no tener mucho alcohol.

Bottle shared with rbrazell! Pours a translucent brownish black with thin lacy ring of tan head and light lacing. Aroma of toasted dark barley, slight bitter chocolate, and slight coffee. Taste follows with hints of soy and a slightly bittersweet finish. Good stuff.

Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle best by date June 2012, crap, poured into a shaker. Pours black with small light brown head. Nice lacing, medium body, medium carbonation, and aroma is bad vinegar. Really bad, my first drain pour, need to have this fresh to make sure.
