Bottle at home ... Deep black... Very chocolaty malts ... sweet milky chocolate... tasty little roast quite dry ... a distinctive american tone not sure what it is but its something thats noty usually present in UK stout and porters... nice but unsatisfing in the end (though im still scoring above average)

Pours dark brown with a small beige head. Smells of coffee and chocolate. Taste is a generic porter, coffee... bitter. Good, but unoriginal.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark beer #5 of 6 from a mixed 6 pack. Aroma is coffee and steel. Appearance is cola color. Taste is black coffee with copper. Palate is very dry. Overall not my favorite but good if you’re looking for a roast coffee taste.

Bottle. Poured a near dark brown with a off white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma started with some sweet dark grains and had a bit of chocolate and toasted notes. Flavor was similar with a good amount of toast and sweet dark roasted grains with just a hint of bitterness.
