A solid porter with no unnecessary bells or whistles. Initial aroma is quite smoky, giving way to roasted coffee and chocolate. Taste is similar with less smoke. Good stuff!

Bottle pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is roasty malt, burnt coffee, a little chocolate. Flavor is is much the same with roast malt, dark chocolate, and a little caramel malt coming through. Lingering bitter finish. Another good one from this brewery that struggled a few years ago.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep chocolaty brown, barely translucent at the edges, with a fairly thick light tan head. Smoky aroma has notes of chocolate, roast malt and caramel. Satisfying flavor has a roast malt core plus notes of chocolate and caramel and hints of molasses and hops. Smooth texture has decent body and good fizz.

Pour is a dark black with a little light shining through. Aroma is very nice. Nice roasted malt with chocolate and a touch of coffee. Flavor is about the same but not as eye opening. A nice roasted malt hits you then some black licorice and finishes a bit watery. This was a well made porter from a brewer I’ve not enjoyed too much from.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
It poured a dark brown color with a small tan head. The aroma was dark fruit, coffee, chocolate and toffee. The taste was chocolate, coffee, some burnt toast, another dark fruit (maybe dates) and a grassy dry finish. Very good Porter.
