Pours out a dark brown with minimal beige head, kind of airy, tiny bits of lacing. Aroma is normal, but flavor is where this one is at. Chocolaty, roast grains with bit of bitterness at the back, mildly sweet finish. Nice porter.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown with off white head. Interesting aroma with a touch of stink on it. The taste is a little better with some chocolate malt coming through with some bitterness on the back end. Decent, but nothing special.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from tap to glass. Brown hue with creamy off white head that dissipated to a ring. Aroma is chocolate, straw, faint roast. Mouthfeel is a bit lacking with a medium light body and soft carbonation. Taste is dry with a slight roasted finish. Overall this beer is a bit lacking in depth and complexity.

Very dark brown with a half in ch of dense tan head. Aroma is chocolate and nuts, and taste is the same, with rich coffee notes. It’s a touch sweet, but clean enough to be drinkable.$1.5/12oz

(Can) Smooth, thin, fairly bitter, and lots of dark bitterness. Not enough dark rich sweetness. I kind of like it, but at the same time feel like it’s missing so much body. Hmm.
