3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours the color of motor oil with a small offwhite head. Chocolate, dark fruit, and coper in the aroma creates a clean impression. Though the smell is different, it is somewhat akin to the feeling of a breath of fresh sea air. Molasses sits behind. Flavor is similar with more chocolate and caramel showing through. Fruity hops complement perfectly. A slight, earthy, tea-like component comes in towards the end. The medium-full body and slightly thin texture play well with the light carbonation for a comforting, smooth finish. Overall, a great, complex porter that I can’t wait to try again.

Bottle. Sweet milk sugar, dry deep doughy roast, and sharp dark chocolate. Touch of chocolately licorice. Taste is moderate to heavy bitter roast, touch of grapefruit, backed by sweet cream and chocolate covered pretzels. Liked it.

bottle from app vintner, reviewing from notes - This beer foamed up so badly that after pouring 2 inches of beer in my pint glass it foamed over. annoying. Anyway, once it finally settled, its dark hoppiness that’s done well, for once, which was awesome.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours nearly black with mahogany tones....huge dark tan head that refuses to give up... diminishes slowly leaving craggy, towers of foam.
Aroma is liquorice, chocolate powder.....roasty.
Flavour is bitter coffee over more liquorice.....
high carbonation, hop bitters.
Slightly thin, but very good, indeed.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours hazy mahogany with 1-finger khaki head. Nose is a rich amalgamation of cacao, black patent malt, nuts, black licorice. Tastes dark malty, with hints of cacao, black licorice, resiny hops, and a rich finish with a big palate heft. To me, this one is more of a hoppy porter than a black IPA.
