This is a very solid brew. It strikes me as a very middle-of-the-road, well-made porter. Maybe slightly toward the stout end of the spectrum, but great balance and very drinkable, if a bit boring.

I absolutely love the underlying chocolate and coffee sapor. It has a fantastic aroma of the same, with a beautiful rich, dark color and piquancy. It has a deep, smooth, sultry vim that I adore. I love Porters, but this is my favorite, though almost impossible to find, with that relish of my favorite, coffee and chocolate flavors.

A very enjoyable porter with strong coffee and some chocolate tones. Not sweet exactly, more like a semi-sweet or bitter chocolate underone taste. Smells mostly of coffee. Decent mouthfeel although there are better in the style. Overall, a solid porter that I’d never turn down if offered. Give it a try.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a pretty much black color with a half finger head that dissipates quickly and leaves a soapy looking lacing. Aroma is roasty chocolate and coffee, along with a hint of vanilla and some smokey qualities. Tastes much like it smells with roasted chocolate and coffee. Starts with the roasted qualities and then finishes with a little bitterness from the hops, as well as some vanilla sweetness. Actually get the feeling that it is a tiny bit watered down. Very nice creaminess to it that accentuates the roasted flavors. Light to medium body with little carbonation. A solid porter.
