3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Originally rated on 8/ 12/08. No. 5 out of the craft sampler case, the porter poured a black body; amber when held up to bright light. The mid tan head left some fair lacing, the aroma was faint, but the flavors of roasted malts, toffe, coffee and hints of chocolate were present but not strong. A little sweet and watery. Overall it was a decent porter a little on the light side but enjoyable.

Great beer It has the color and aroma lighter than most porters but the flavor is great. Could be a little more smokey for my liking. Overall I enjoyed this beer

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 12/9/2014. Pours crystal clear deep reddish brown color with a 2 finger dense and rocky light khaki head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, toast, dark bread, light smoke/char, herbal, grass, light molasses/dark fruit, and herbal/roasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, toast, dark bread, light smoke/char, herbal, grass, light molasses/dark fruit and herbal/roasted earthiness. Good amount of herbal hop/roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, toast, dark bread, light smoke/char, and herbal/roasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt and earthy hops flavors; with a nice roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and fairly creamy/sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warmth lingering after the finish. Overall this is a nice porter style. All around good robustness, complexity, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth to drink for the ABV. A nicely enjoyable offering.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a nice dark red, or dark brown color. It has a pretty thick head, and it lingers for a while, and it has some crazy lingering lacing.
Aroma is roasty malty, but not too much so. The aroma is very similar to what you taste.
Taste is caramel and slight chocolate. There is definitely some hops in there. Roasted malt is pretty heavy in the taste.
Mouthfeel is not real heavy. Not sessionable, but still easy drinking. Not picking up a lot of carbonation.
Overall, this is really really good. I’m still drinking the beer, and the lacing is still right on the rim of the glass. It’s pretty tasty. A good porter.
