Pretty dry porter with a lot of roasted notes: chocolate and coffee. Not particularly rich, but also not overly sweet. A good match for brats and what have you. Pleasant hopping.

Pours dark ruby to black with a thinner khaki head that leaves some soapy waves of dripping lace. Nose involves notes of chocolate, toast, and nuttiness. Pretty sweet, fairly bitter. Medium bodied, somewhat oily, active, with a toasty bitter finish. Not a bad brew, definitely sessionable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a deep brown with a half finger, tan head that coats the glass. Aroma is nice and roasty. Chocolate with a touch of coffee and caramel, and a bit of citrus hops. Taste is balanced. Mild dark chocolate and roasted malts paired with a short, slightly coffee finish. Medium body and carbonation. Texture is slightly thin but clean with a very dry finish. Overall a very easy drinking porter. Solid roasted flavours but balanced well.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap. Dark brown almost black pour with a light beige head. Aromas of lightly roasted malts, hints of chocolate, and coffee. Flavor is a little weak and the body is thin. Just not robust enough. Decent brew but needs a little more.

Bottle sample at home from notes. Pours a dark reddish brown color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, dark chocolate, a hint of stale coffee, some earthy and herbal hops. Body is thin and flavors are muddled.

A really nice chocolate malty beer. Low abv is what makes this stand out. Very toasty good flavor.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle in trade with Fletche00. Pours very dark brown, with light ruby notes. Good coffee notes, some sour cherries, molasses, and nutmeg. The flavor is sweet up front, with some significant sour and metallic notes through the finish. Medium to heavy body, sticky, and pretty astringent. Overall, this is a mediocre porter, with weak aroma, and a relatively unpleasant flavor. Not bad, but not very good.
