3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Whole Foods Plymouth Meeting. Pours dark brown and deep mahogany through direct light, with a 2-finger tan head. Nose is roasty choc/black patent malts, cacao, nuts. Tastes medium in heft and complexity, with a roasty malt flavor, mild cacao, heavy nutty flavors, and some finishing molasses. The repour gives more well-retained frothy head. This is a solid porter, with a complex tan head more legendary than Cassius Clay’s.

Dark with a tan head. Earthy and light citrus hops, light roasted malt, a bit of chocolate. Nice full body. Earthy hop, citrus, tart, coffee bean. Nothing out of the ordinary but a solid porter and one I could have a couple rounds of at the bar. Good stuff.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From notes. Dark black brown body, small pale tan head, moderate lacing. Nose is roasted coffee and chocolate. Simple, but non-offensive. Flavor shows a similar two-note profile. Medium to full bodied, a little sweet, muddled finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice little porter. Pours a dark brown with a moderate head. Good level of roasted malts to it, and the beer sits easily on the palate, which is not always the case with porters. Very enjoyable.
