3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a black color with khaki head. Mocha, chocolate, coffee, malty aromas. Sweet, malty, creamy, roasty flavors. Sweet and light-medium bodied for a porter. Pretty tasty beer. By far, the best Weston beer Iíve had.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz bomber purchased at Metcalf Discount on 91st Street in Overland Park, Kansas. The pour is a brown burgundy with a 1/2 inch tan head that is lasting. The aroma is chestnut, mild roast, and a grassy earthiness. The taste is the roast, showing a bit of char up front, hitting on the chestnut flavor mid flavor, then moving to mineral and the dry grass in the finish. The palate is light to medium bodied, high carbonation level, and a dry, char roast finish. Nice, easy drinking Porter.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark black. No head. No lacing. Chocolate. Pretty bland. Not much of anything. Ok, but not memorable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
In short: A harsh, roasted, chalky and chocolaty porter. Tasty but a bit too rough.
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed relatively fresh one month after purchase from a Kansas store
The look: Black body topped by a medium beige head
In long: Nose is roast and black chocolate, this smells like a Lindt 90% Cacao bar over a slice of burnt toast with a bit of smoke. Taste is very roasted, strong chalky sensation, black chocolate, roasted coffee beans, a touch of smoke, roasted almonds, milk, wood coal. Overall very harsh with a mouth drying chalky/coal sensation. Not a bad beer, tasty for sure but just a bit too messy and too harsh to be sessionnable. Nothing remarkable here but at least Iím getting to enter another rating, but letís be honest people, rating beers is not really a hobby, itís not even a routine, itís more like a symptom.
