3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2011 Tap at the brewery - dark ruby beer - very hefty, more along the lines of a stout - despite having so many ingredients, everything comes together well - the bitterness of the dark malt works well with moderate notes of spicy rye and woody hops - the dash of smoked malt adds an earthiness and a slight autumnal, campfire kind of quality - there is a subtle chocolate sweetness - toasty rye finish, with lingering bitterness - very tasty.

Light and toasty porter, with little noticeable on the nose (but that's not unexpected for a porter. Very nice mahogany color.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Witís End. Color is black with a nice brown head. Aroma of deeply roasted malt and a faint hop note in back. It has a bolder medium body with a smooth mouth feel. Flavor comes in with sweet roasted malt, this is backed by mellow hops and bitterness. In the after taste the sweetness fades letting the bitterness hang on the end. Overall this is just a great brew, very tasty.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Witís End. Clear black with a small light khaki head. Interesting aroma of some chocolate covered sausage with perhaps some bitter herbal hoppiness. Flavor is kinda the same on a medium/full body. Smokey chocolate notes mix with something that reminds me of artisan sausage, finishing on a mild herbal bitterness. Perhaps a bit too hoppy and not sweet enough for my liking.
