Nearly black pour with a frothy, tan head. The aroma has dark chocolate, lightly roasted coffee, and a little toffee. It has a light body with a thin texture and average carbonation. The taste is mildly sweet, followed by a roasted, dry finish with a little bit of a pretzel flavor.

Draft. Very dark ruby maroon, massive thick brown head, great tetention, solid lacing. Aroma of toasted and roasted coffee grounds abd cocoa. Taste is dilute coffee, chocolate, burnt espesso. More of an English style porter, which is fine by me.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep brown, purple backlit, frothy dark tasn head.
Roast chocolate/coffee scent.
Taste is slight bitter coffee with a strong cola-like flavour behind it.
Not bad, but the cola is slightly distracting.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle, thanks to Jay, bottled on December 2010. Minimal lighter brown head, bubbles on glass. Clear dark red color. Fine particles can be seen floating around if light is shone through the glass. Lighter, soft carbonation. Lighter body. Pretty easy to drink. Nice, lighter roasty chocolate malt aroma. Lightly sweet bittersweet taste (kind of watered down). Some roasty aftertaste. Decent and reasonably tasty porter, especially considering it isn’t fresh. Enjoyed with a DP Dough Big Pig calzone while studying for final exams.
