3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Poured medium-deep brown with a nice cap of beige head. The aroma picked up sweet vanilla and cocoa with light-moderate roast to it.. some odd soapy accents to it. The flavor found sweet, toasty molasses and black patent at the core.. some sour malty notes and a kiss of vanilla around.. a little too sharp at the finish. Medium-bodied with light-ish overall roast on the palate.. good level of carbonation.. OK overall.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very, very bland for a porter, especially a relatively high ABV porter. I believe that General Washington would be disappointed; I certainly am.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A clear dark brown pour with a light one finger head. Aroma isn’t too strong but contains hints of roasted malts, slight butter and chocolate. Taste is moderately sweet and malty with a slight bitter finish. Medium body and a refreshing porter

From a bottle. Pours dark brown with a thick, bubbly tan head and lots of lacing. Tastes like light burnt toast and roasted coffee bitterness. Smooth with light creaminess. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like light sweet and roasted chocolate and coffee with light booze.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brown pour with tan head and lace. Aroma is light roasted malt and a touch of coffee. Flavor is pretty hard roasty malt with a nice medium/hard bitter finish. A tad thin and watery but pretty solid beer.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle.
Pours a nice mahogany color with a frothy tan head. Aroma is of caramel, chocolate, and coffee. Taste is of caramel, molasses, licorice, coffee, and leaves a quick, dry finish I would say a bit distinct, not the same old porter.
