Flanagan’s. Bottle pours deep brown with a tan head. Aroma shows chocolate, moderate roast, vanilla and caramel. Flavor shows the same with additional notes of coffee. Overall body is somewhat thin and ashy with lots of roasted bitterness in the finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - Pours an almost completely opaque brown - tight light tan head that recedes quickly - no lacing. Aroma is mild chocolate and coffee, mildly roasted (shall I call it ’toasted’?)...some nuts. Pretty good, though not intense by any means. Flavor is even more mild - roasted malt, coffee, mild bitter chocolate - not bad, but not as good as the nose. Medium to light bodied - seems appropriate for the drink. Not bad, but nothing to come running back for!

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.

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.
