This dark malt porter was actually the first dark beer I ever drank. I cannot believe I never rated it before now. It has a nice strong malty taste, though it doesnt have that annoying coffee presence that many porters and lots of stouts have. This is one of my all time favorites, and its nice to have on occasion.

Smells of malt. Pours black with decent head. Palate is watery and grainy. Some nutty bitter on aftertaste though light. Palate dies pretty quick. Boring.

A beautiful, mahogany colored brew. Aroma has a bittersweet smell to it. The taste is bold, but not overpowering with a smooth texture to it. Very enjoyable.

Bottle->stem. Deep brown with medium tan head. Aroma: stale roasted malt, hint of coffee. Tastes same, with some dark fruit. Overall a weak porter.

Pours from the bottle deep brown with a disappearing tan head. No visible carbonization. Goes down smooth very little after taste. This is a beer I really enjoy.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Garnet pour with slightly pinkish off white head. Fruity and earthy nose, light burnt toast. Flavor is thin and slightly chalky, akin to a flat Guinness. Papery taste in my mouth, cardboard, fruity cleaning products.
