3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle courtesy of Monte. Thanks. Pours a dark brown color with a small beige head that dissipates to a fine ring. The aroma features roasted grains, mocha and a hint of coffee. The taste is more mocha, roasted grains, sweetened coffee and some bitter walnuts. The palate was just a bit thinner than I prefer and the carbonation was soft. Finished medium in duration and clean. Overall: Decent porter, this went down very easy.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown pour, thin creamy head. A little light in the body. Flavor is of lightly roasted malts with a slight coffee hint. Nothing too fancy, seems like an above average porter to me.

On tap at Mellow Mushroom. Pours a dark black with small light tan head. Aroma of chocolate and roasted malts, light smokiness. Maybe some coffee. Taste is smooth. Bitterness up front. Good porter from my state!

From the bottle. Big coffee roast aroma. Small light brown foam that doesnt last long. Very dark. No haze. Chocolate coffee roasty taste. Slightly bitter. Low carbonation. Enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by Mari. Aroma is slight chocolate and some fruit that is hard to place, almost candy like. Appearance is rich brown with nice head that dissipates rather quickly. Taste is chocolate, slight rye and a finish of carbonated coffee. As it warms some toffee comes out but in a bitter way, maybe from the rye. Overall, light mouthfeel makes this a little lacking for me.

Solid offering from my hometown. Very chocolatey smooth porter with a nice subtle rye spice. Creamy head with a light but creamy body. Aroma is roasty chocolate with but pretty light as well. Always one of my go to beers.

Aroma is light with notes of chocolate, coffee and rye. Taste has a little bitterness up front followed by chocolate, rye and a touch of coffee. It finishes with a lingering bitterness, very well balanced porter.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. Opaque ebony with a lasting quarter inch of foam. Aroma is lightly bitter cocoa, berry, espresso with cream, and hints of char and green spicy herb. Flavor has a bit more peppery spice. Along with the char and espresso, the rye provides a good balance to the big toasted malt, lightly fruity English ale yeast, and lactose notes. Medium body is well balanced, has a bit too much carbonation for my tastes, but is overall an interesting and very sessionable porter.

Comfortably toasty. Nothing overpowering about this one, just a solid porter. Goes great with a little dark chocolate as an after dinner beer.
