4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. It pours mahogany brown with reddish hues and a soft tan head that settles in for the session. Vibrant aroma of dark roasted coffee, vanilla beans, and yes, maybe the slightest dark fruit character. Medium and smooth body. Roasted coffee merges with a biscuit malt sweetness and the mildest of hop finishes. Only vaguely bitter but totally enticing. I wish I picked up more of these.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Looks like coffee, smells like coffee, tastes like coffee. That pretty much sums it up, but as far as a porter goes, at 5% itís thinner than I like and I could use more complexity in the aroma and taste. As it is, itís pretty much a coffee bomb, good coffee, but a bit one dimensional.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Greeted by a strong, inviting coffee aroma, darkest brown body that blends with a chocolate and light vanilla flavor. With all the strong aromas the end result this porterís body was lighter than I expected.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Deep brown body. Tan head. Aroma of roasted coffee, vanilla, cream, sugar, chocolate. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes moderately sweet and lightly bitter. Thin to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Taste of coffee and cream with seven teaspoons of sugar. Easy drinking, but too sweet and too thin. Aroma is nice.
