3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a nice dark brown with a modest beige head and lacing. Aroma was of roasted malts and coffee. Taste was also of roasted malts, coffee, cocoa and a light hop bitterness finish. Mouthfeel was pretty good. Overall, a fairly decent Porter from the folks @ Sand Creek.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
12 ounce bottle. Pours black with off-white foam. The aroma is roasted malt, but I miss the esters in an English porter. The taste is somewhat thin and lackluster. Not very good, but drinkable I suppose. All that they got right was the color and that´s it.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
335ml bottle, darker pour. Smell is reminiscent of anchor porter but better. Caramel and toffee, soft hops, soft roast. Falvor also bings to mind anchor porter with an almost crippling english ale yeast character. This one has more cocoa and is more redeemable.

Poured lighter than I though it should. Slight tan head that disappeared quickly. Light in body. Flavor was decent but nothing stood out distinctly. A decent sessionable porter.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a dark amber with a ruby hue and almost no head. Aroma of a little chocolate and a little Marciano cherry. Taste is light sweet. A little chocolate with citrus and banana. Light bodied with a thin texture. Soft carbonation and a longer than expected finish. Overall, ok. Not really diggin it though.
