3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From bottle. Dark brown and transparent. Small, tan head that did not last too long. Light, chocolate flavor but not very strong. Not bad, but I’d buy many others before buying this again.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Nearly black, rather a deep brown with cola hues, moderate frothy light beige head, sparce lacing.   Soft roasted malt nose, a little coffee bean and chocolate, minor lactose.   Toasted malts on the tongue, not terribly roasty but still good.   A light Porter for sure.   Aside from the mainly toasted malts, slight lactose like sweetness.   Light example for the style, but clean and easy to drink.   Perhaps a great entry level Porter.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Fairly decent for a light Porter.   Thanks Phil for the bottle!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Transparent dark mahogany brown with a thin-lacing wispy light tan head. Aroma of sweet dark caramel and chocolate with a touch of smoke. Starts with a fairly-full dark caramely maltiness with some bittering hops and roasted presence. Finishes smooth and milk chocolatey. A pretty good porter.
