3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from the brewery. Pours a dark black with a bit of tan head that dissipates quickly. Smell is lots of coffee, some chocolate, and a hint of citrus hops. Palate is on the lighter side of medium bodied and has a good amount of carbonation. Taste is slightly bitter at first with a bit of sweetness, but then gives way to a very long lasting roastiness that you can both feel and taste. Pretty good porter.
Very dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malt: coffee, toast, chocolate. Similar flavors follow on the palate. Moderate bitterness with a medium length finish. KansaiBeerLvrs (5373) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 11, 2017
Fron notes. As a Porter I am expecting it to be more roasty and thinner bodied than the stout.
It pours a dark cola black with a filmy tan head and a big roasty chocolate savoury aroma.
Yep, medium to light bodied with a dry finish. Roasty, chocolate, licorice (very very mild) and savoury umami type flavors. This is a really nice robust Porter. o_Merlin_o (235) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 9, 2017
Pours motor oil black. Creamy coffee head with excellent lacing. Aroma of coffee and wet leather. Bitter coffee and wet grass taste. Ewwwww. Poobah (468) - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - NOV 3, 2017
Dark brown with a thin, light tan head and a milk chocolate, malty nose. Malty with a bittersweet chocolate, dark fruit, dry, espresso finish. SolarSam (85) - Interlaken, New York, USA - OCT 30, 2017
Probably a great porter by style alignment. I like to push the envelope, but this feels good tonight. And if it is winning awards, who am I to dissent?

12floz bottle, BOD: 04.17.2017, $1.75 single, pint glass. Dark brown in color, which with a vigorous pour presents a sustained large tan head that leaves splotchy markings. Malty nose is fairly mild with essences of residual sugars and toasted bread crumbs. Mildly roasted flavor character can be described as nutty, and with further imagination heavily brown laden mashed potatoes. Adequately good for the style, and as a beer for that matter. mesacollier (32) - - OCT 5, 2017
Nice dark color, minimal creamy head, very smooth chocolate and coffee flavor, slight chocolate aroma

12 oz bottle pours black with a tan head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee and a little smoke. Taste is all the same as aroma, very nice. higgsbison (266) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 21, 2017
Notes of bitter chocolate. A bit astringent but not in a good way. I enjoyed it much better when it was warm
