3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thin fizzy head that disappears quickly. It has a very malty aroma with overtones of vanilla, caramel and some coffee. The flavor was a little weak at first, but then I let it warm up and it became somewhat better. The flavors that come through are of roasting. A different porter than what Iím used to.

Bottle. Dark black color as expected. Huge light khaki head. Chocolate and malt aroma. Starts very sweet and finishes a little tart. Way to heavily carbonated for me though.

12 ounce bottle poured black with aromas of light chocolate, malts, some light coffee, and a touch of earth. Flavors are the same, a little thin on the palate for how I like my porters, still a decent beer.

Pours dark brown with a khaki head that was substantial, thought it may gave been infected it was so large. Aroma is roast, coffee and earthy. Taste was bittersweet. Very smooth texture, almost silky. Medium bodied. Excellent.
