2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Almost-opaque black. Persistent mocha froth holds beautifully. Very sweet nose of wort, paint, soy sauce, cola, lactose, overripe plums, and stewed black cherries. Suggestive butter toffee, vanilla taffy, coconut, and licorice. Some vegetal notes poking through, as well. Snug but fuzzy carbonation. Initially tangy with metallic malt coupling with overripe plum sweetness and cooked tomatoes. Quite worty, and severely dull, consequently, as soggy, day-old breakfast cereal blends with flabby sugars to render any vivid malt remnants utterly lifeless. Worty to the point of resembling dog food, as well. Medicinal effect is apparent from the combination of higher alcohols and pervasive overripe dark fruits. Dusting of tannins gently brush the tongue, but quickly give way to a scorched wood and stale coffee grounds huskiness. Severely muddled, throughout. Finishes perpetually sugar-laden and unfinished, with a profound absence of malt definition and sturdiness of structure. A clear miss for Uinta, as this is quite the sugar and soy sauce bomb, with a host of other flaws piled on for good measure. Almost too undrinkable to analyze. A rather foul concoction.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
On tap at 10 East. Clearly the best BP I have ever had, and thereís no two-ways about it. Huge in every way possible. Loads of bourbon and dark fruit in the aroma, cocoa, light wood, toffee and black licorice. The aroma is just as stunning with tons of chocolate covered raisins, vanilla, bourbon, treacle, and figs. In a blind tasting Iím betting this could pass as a impy stout.

Dark near black pour with ring of brown head. Nose is slightly boozy and a hint vegetal. Roasty and toasty and vanilla notes. Really smooth and chocolately. Smooth and velvety, but not overly chewy or thick. Perfect mouthfeel for a porter. Really enjoyed this.
