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.

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.

Dark brown color with a white head, its nose is nice, soft, and spiced, with slight notes of coffee and licorice. It has a weak mouthfeel, but a pleasant flavor of more coffee and licorice, especially in the finish. It’s pleasant, a good porter.

Aroma: Chocolate, caramel, very light smoke. Appearance: Not sure, drank from the bottle. Flavor: Matched the nose. Palate: Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation, long finish. Overall: A good porter with enough complexity to keep things interesting. Can’t believe I hadn’t rated this already.

Draft to taster at Upland. Looks good; cola with foamy beige head. Smells of mild dark malt and chocolate. Tastes like it smells, only more robust, with some nuttinesa and a bit of roast. Solid on the palate. A decent porter.
