Pours dark brown with red highlights in the light. The aroma is nice with roasted coffee beans and hints of hops. The flavor is really nice with strong coffee and roasted malts a strongly roasted porter with a good potent hop finish that doesn’t overwhelm. Nice job.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: The pour is nearly black, at worst very dark brown, with a khaki head.
S: Lots of coffee notes to this one with plenty of roast to go along with it. A decent dark chocolate aroma along with some earthy hop aromas.
T: Like with the nose, there’s a solid roast and coffee character. Plenty of bitter, dark chocolate and a solid earthy hop flavor. The beer is fairly bitter, but works nicely for a roasty porter like this.
M: The body is maybe a touch thin with a medium level of carbonation.
D: Another solid Triple Rock beer. I really enjoyed this porter and found it very easy to drink my glass.

Draft. A deep red beer with a thin brown head. The aroma is dominated by notes of roasted malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted malt, lending it a slight acidic edge, before the dry finish sets in.
