Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at Gettysburg Eddie’s in Gettysburg, PA. This is a brown colored beer with a tan head. The aroma is slightly sweet with some coffee and malt notes. The flavor is full of malt and some caramel. A nice black & tan.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Completely off the rails from the beers I’ve been reviewing. Slight caramel note in the aroma. Dark brown to black appearance with a khakis colored head that doesn’t last long. On the heavier side of bitter. Full-bodied beer with a creamy texture. Nothing about this beer is overwhelming. Balanced well. Instead of the lawn mower scale, I will compare this beer to Matthew McConaughey’s performance in True Detective: dark but extremely well-done.

I used to drink this from bottles for a change of pace when I was transitioning to non crap beer. It?s OK by mass market standard.

Bottle. Dark sugar nose, with light roast malt, rather sweet. Dark translucent brown with ruby highlights. Thin sweet dark roast malt, cola, minimal hopping. Thin-medium body. Decent and sessionable, but not very interesting.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark brown with a thin tan head with just a little lacing. Aroma is of caramel, sweet malts, lightly roasted malts, coco, and some light coffee. Taste is about the same as the aroma. Has a medium-light body with a semi watery mouthfeel and a mostly sweet, medium-short finish. Overall, a below average, but drinkable porter.

Strong caramel scent, very malty as well. Flavor is somewhat sweet but is an overall good porter. Not my favorite style but this is a good one. Surprised I liked this as much as I did

Pours a dark brown with a medium tan head with substantial lacing. Smell of bread, coffee and nuts. Taste of caramel, nuts, and a slight smokey flavor. This is very smooth for a dark brew, and as much as I like their traditional lager I’ve been waiting a while to try this. Definitely going to add this to my typical go to list!
