3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours near black with tan foamy head. Aroma has notes of maple and chocolate. Taste is refreshingly on the lighter side of a porter. The honey comes through strongly as an offset to the smokey flavor of the dark malt and peppery hops. Very drinkable without a large aftertaste. Mouthfeel is pretty thick, and lingers as such after the taste.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 16, 2012 Deep dark brown in color with no head to speak of with an aroma primarily of honey. The taste is coco and then more coco with honey notes present. The body is medium and you can almost feel the dry coco powder. Enjoyable but I wouldnít want to drink a couple back to back.

Poured a thin looking brown color with a beige head. Head did have nice retention and decent lacing. Aroma had mild roasted coffee malts some cocoa and a cola note. Flavor was of slightly bitter coffee there was a nice sweetness from the cocoa but I could not detect any honey in the flavor or aroma. Flavor was overall two dimensional. A thin body and light finish.

Grain and tree bark nose. Cloudy brown, thin yellow head. Fudge flavor. Watery mouthfeel. Finishes grainy and husky, but sometimes Iím in the mood for that. Not so great, but itís tolerable and different.
