2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap @ Squatters. Dark brown in color with a sort of reddish hue and some tan foam. Toasty, nutty, and fruity nose. A lot of plum and raisin in particular. Somewhat acidic and thin on the palate. There’s a bunch of roasted malts, some coffee grounds, and dark fruits. Not really a big fan.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark brown with small tan head. I am not a huge fan of porters, generally - but this is a lighter porter with very little bitterness. Aroma of coffee and malt, sweet molasses taste - malty with no bitterness and very light finish. Very drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A nice, light porter overall. Pours a deep red-black with a tan head. Smells of coffee and cinnamon. Taste is light, with cinnamon, espresso and a slightly empty finish. Had in the bottle.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasting at Matt’s
Dark brown color, near black, small head. A bit of dark caramel, a bit of dust, light residual sweetness, maybe a hint of lactose and dark chocolate, and not enough character.
Not bad, but shallow.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle, pours a deep dark brown with a small beige head. Nose brings out stale coffee grounds and light toasted malt. Flavour is pretty dry and toasted, but without much character or complexity, with toasted malt and stale coffee grounds. Nothing offensive, but nothing special either. Meh.

12 oz bottle. BB 02/28/15. (Whole Foods) Las Vegas, NV.
Black colour with a tiny light tan ring.
Cookies, chocolate and mild coffee... oh yeah... some roasted malt too.
And that’s the aroma. The flavour however is roasted malt, dark chocolate, mild coffee and some mild bitterness. Oily. A bit watery. But hey... it’s only 4%.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours black, nice thick tan head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is light coffee, a bit of roasted malts, a bit of char. Taste is much better than the aroma, nice coffee favors, a bit of sweet chocolate, toasted malts and a bit of faint fruitiness. Thin mouthfeel, highly carbonated. Pretty average porter.
