3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the brewpub (5.3%). Toasted malt aroma. Color is very dark mahogany with an intermittent tan head. Body is near medium; carbonation is mild and creamy. Very smooth. Flavor is toasted malt and a little hop. No particular notes of coffee or chocolate. Perhaps a little anise. Reasonably dry, toasted and slightly bitter finish.

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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ the brewpub. Pours dark amber with infra red edges and thin tan head. The moderate aroma emits roasted malts, chocolate, coffee and mild oxidation notes. The taste has a brief pulse of black strap molasses followed by earthiness, highly roasted to burnt malts and some coffee grounds. Before the coffee really picks up steam I get mild notes of chocolate malts and the faintest oxidation note. Very light astringency leaves this beer more neutral than dry.
