3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle poured inti a shaker. Pours black with a half fingeo of khaki head. Aroma of cocoa and slight coffee with a hint of vanilla. Taste is light bitter. Coffee and cocoa with some light herbal hops. Mwdium bodied with a really thin texture. Lively carbonation and a decently long finish. Overall, not bad. Enjoyable but not too special.

What a great beer. Dark brown in color. Tan head. Nut and malt tones in the smell. Coffee, malt with a light chocolate flavor. Finish is a light hop and malt. Love this beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured into a mini-tulip. A lot of roasty notes, a little earthy nose. The beer was poured out medium brownish. Heavy-ish, dark right at the front. Mid way the body ligthened with a slightly flat finish.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from beer club. Pours black with medium brown head. Toast to the nose continues to taste along with chocolate and some sweetness, maybe molasses. A little thin for a porter, but overall I liked it.

First of all I wish they would go back to the cranky old man on the bottle instead of the stylized graphic. But anyways, it is a pretty good porter, light on the roasted/burnt toast taste and still has a little hops poking through.

12oz bottle...I’m not a big fan of Porter, but this was smooth, creamy, and drinkable so it was good as far as it goes.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Had a little of my wife’s pint at Dewey’s-Kenwood. Pours a deep, mostly opaque brown with a small tan head and a lasting thick ring. Notes of chocolate, toast, earth, nuts, and some roast that only shows up in the nose. The flavor is a bit weaker. Thin-bodied, with low to moderate carbonation and an earthy mouthfeel. Doesn’t live up to the aroma’s promise. Simple porter.

Dry and basement dank taste. Draft at taps and dolls. Nutty and sweet. Carmel notes and sweet. Pretty decent

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Solid beer but nothing special. Too thin and lacking in body. One of the weaker beers by this very underrated brewery.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
