3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
West USA trip 2010. Bottled. The aroma has some chocolate, roast. Clear, brown-black coloured porter with an off-white, thin head. The taste is a bit sweet and has chocolate malts and some roast. Dry finish. Light bodied beer and a bit carbonated. Must say, quite a nice porter for the low alcohol percentage.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. bottle- Pours blackish brown with red highlights, aroma is creamy, milky and chocolate malt, nice indeed. The flavor is more bitter than the aroma led on. Medium body, kind of light on the palate, but has a nice chocolatey coffee flavor, maybe not the expensive gourmet shit, but maybe Folgers. Smooth drinkable and chugable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at the Bard’s/Oddfellows, Cedar City, UT. Black, small beige head. Lots of chocolate and coffee. Medium bodied with fairly soft mouthfeel. Fairly dry with pleasant rich flavour of dark chocolate. Medium bitterness. Whoever designed this beer had me in mind - the combination of dryness, softness andrich dark chocolate flavour is spot on. Lovely porter!

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Dark rich black color. Malty, aroma sort of like cherry cough syrup (slightly). Not much body in it and a light almost unnoticeable flavor. Sort of disappointing after what it smelled like. Finishes cleanly, though that is not surprising since it tasted like cold water.
