3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft - Another jet black Porter with no head and very minimal carbonation. Really coats the palate and sticks around for a while in the mouth. Subtle malt and coffee notes on the nose. Good balance of roasted malt (coffee, malt, nuts) and bitterness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, brown, mostly lasting.
Body is black (almost opaque, flashlight tested).
Aroma is moderately malty (roasted/charred grain, coffee), with notes of minerals and licorice.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery texture, lively/soft carbonation.
Darn solid brew! Very very roasty, this ain’t no kid’s chocolate syrup type of stout/porter. I’ve only had one other thing from Yoho many years ago, the Yona Yona, and that was equally solid. Obviously a talented brewer and I wouldn’t be surprised if they have some 4+ beers in their arsenal.
