3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewery. This reminds me more of a robust porter with a nice roast in the nose with a malty backbone. Pours a nice dark brown with a quickly dissipating head. Not a lot of lacing. The taste of roast and some malt bitterness accompanied by a bit of bite by the hops. Palate is average with a medium body, was hoping for a bit of dryer finish. Overall this is a good beer and something different to the normal line up. Glad I got one.

Opaque brown/black with a full ring head and sheets of lace. The taste is strong bitter chocolate malt infused with a light smoke overtone. Finish provides nothing new. Very middle of the line porter, not complex, but I’ve had many weaker examples of the style.

Aroma of milk chocolate, pronounced roast and some resin. Appearance was dark brown with bone head. Flavor was coffee forward with some chocolate and nuts. Palate was very soft and creamy. A good porter.

Draught at brewery. Light body with dark tones. Trace of roade that is not very intense in flavor. Moderate carbonation. A decent porter but on the the thin side.
