3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured into a pint glass. Two fingers of tan head on top of a caramel colored beer. Minimal lacing.
Roasted malt smell; that’s it and it’s nice.
Watery taste, roasted and a little burnt malt and a bit astringent at the end.
Thin body, almost no carbonation.
Higher marks overall because it’s only 4% with a descent flavor and smell profile.

Bottle. Clear brownish pour, with a thin head. Watery and thin for a porter. Burnt malt, molasses, watery, and a bit of dark fruit. Not very good.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Look - Draft Pour yields a nice off-white head that dissipates rapidly. Not much lacing. Opaque black coloring.
Smell - Loads of coffee. Smells bitter if that’s possible.
Taste - Very light on the coffee tasting hop bitterness. That’s about all I get. Not much chocolate or anything else you’d expect. Maybe a little cocoa. The bitter finish lasts and sits on the tongue.
Feel - Feels very carbonated and crisp. Not necessarily a good thing for me. I like this style to be silky.
Overall - Not to my liking compared to many other widely distributed porters. Not terrible though. I probably wouldn’t get it again. Almost seems watered down.

Aroma is heavily roasted malts, caramel, toffee, coffee, espresso. Taste is sweet roasted malts, chocolate and light bittering hops. Finishes slightly watered down sadly. Appearance is black with a thin pearl head that retains fairly poorly.
