4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2014 Undated 12 oz bottle served in a snifter at about 50-55F. This porter pours nearly black but clear with a dark tan head that has limited retention but leaves decent lacing. The aroma has an attractive mix of sweet malts with more dark fruit than dark roasted grains. Flavor: a mix of sweet malts and dark roasted grains. Hints of toffee and dark fruits, Lightly sweet. Hint of coffee and dark chocolate in the aftertaste.
Feel: Soft, low carbonation. Full bodied. Creamy smooth.

Odd, this was more like a Scottish ale or even a Belgian to me. Was way too sweet with rock candy and dark fruits. Very little of the porter profile. Ease up on the sugar, fellas.

The bottle popped on me and all I got was head for the first few pours. The aroma is sweet and smoky. The flavor is difficult to nail down because it fizzes up like Coca Cola as soon as I take a sip.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A deep dark brown porter with a super thick frothy brown head. In aroma, a nice mix of Brett and bitter chocolate, alcohol burn, nice. In mouth, a nice sweet peaty chocolate with dark fruits, a bit lighter than expected, but still nice. Shared with GRM.
