3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I think this beer tastes pretty good... Its a little light for a porter, but the flavor is pretty legit. Color is molasses with light tan head. Easy drinking for the cold months

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Twisted Jimmy’s. Mild coffee and cocoa nose, mild sweet malty character and no discernible hops. Lactose milky sweetness. Dark brown-black clear with thin head. Medium-light body with medium-high carbonation, fizzy on tongue. Starts sweet and a little watery. Sweet malt notes with light chocolate, lactose and a hint of coffee. Very little bitterness, with mild sweet finish and tang afterwards.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle split at Christine and Daves thanks to DLJ, 26/11/13.
Dark mahogony brown with a moderate tan covering that clears to a pond.
Nose is brown sugars, earthy cocoa, honey roast nuts, milk chocolate.
Taste comprises earthy cocoa, light metallic, dark toffee fudge, brown sugar, rather on the thin side and a step down from the aroma.
Medium body, moderate carbonation, a little watery, dry light roast tones in the finish.
So so porter lacking any real depth of flavour.

Pours a very dark brown with a short white head which is gone quickly. Aroma of coffee and pine (odd combination). Taste is thin, odd, weak coffee, taste tales off into cardboard. A bit unpleasant.

12oz bottle. Pours a solid brown color with a small bubbly head. Smells like cocoa mix and a bit of cappaccino. Taste is chocolately and somewhat sweet with an earthy quality. The taste is subtle and plain. Medium to light in body with a smooth creamy texture.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours opaque black with a short lived head. Aroma is dominated by cocoa and sweet malt. Flavor is smooth and rich with chocolate and roasted malt being dominant. Very smooth and creamy mouthfeel. This certainly qualifies as a winter warmer.
