Bottle. Pretty much the expected visuals, if but for a thinner head than expected. Drinking this thing is like chewing on cocoa nibs ... pow! Full on baking chocolate, bitter and chalky, not really "sweet" the way Americans would define it. (#5865, 11/20/2014)

A- Cola, subtle coffee, tobacco, robust, subtle smoke.
A- Black color, dark brown liquid, tan head.
T- Cola, coffee, burnt caramel, tobacco, malty, slightly bitter, roasty.
P- Full body, slightly thin texture, medium carbonation, robust finish.
O- A surprisingly good porter from a brewer I’ve never heard of from a small town I’ve never heard off. Lots of cola and coffee notes in the aroma and taste. A very good representation.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The appearance of this beer is a slightly hazy reddish dark brown with a small light tan head that fades somewhat quickly. The aroma blends dark chocolate, roasted and caramel malts, and a hint of coffee beans and possibly vanilla; the taste is similar with its slight malt bitterness, slightly sweetness, and touch of umami. The finish is quite roasty and malty, and it has a thin texture, medium body, and a soft carbonation as well. Overall, I’m surprised that Weston made this beer because it is quite solid.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Incredible roasted chocolate aroma w/ a great deep dark pour w/ a tan head the slowly fizzles into decent lacing. The taste doesn’t quite live up to the scent however. The body is a touch thin but still packs a big roasty punch. It leaves some solid bitterness on the tongue & overall is a really good beer!

Moving out of KS rate-a-poolza. 22oz bottle poured into an Ommegang tulip glass. Pours with a strong khaki head atop a black body. As the head fades it leaves a sticky lacing. Aroma is a nice and simple mineral roast, light yet full and clean. Flavor unsweetened cocoa with a clean yet spritzy mouthfeel. Mineral finish with a long but light roast aftertaste. Simple and right on the money.
