4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A thin head on a black body.
The aroma is roasted/toasted malt. Singular but good.
The taste has a mild sweetness from the roasted malt, then some burnt wood joins in for a balanced ale.
The texture is smooth with moderate carbonation and a medium to heavy body.
An enjoyable drink.

LCI. Nice porter, bit smokey, some roasted malts. Nice taste, but a bit watery for me, could have had a bit more fuller body. Not bad though.

Draft. Pours deep brown with a beige head. Kind of a grainy base, with mild toasted malts, roasted grain, and a grainy finish. Reminds me more of a schwarz.

Close to perfection
A very good dark beer, well balanced between dark malt and hop flavours, sustained by a perfect body.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very dark brown color. Not much of a head. A few big bubbles of cream color head, clinging to one side. Actually, it’s sounding up on the one side, but the rest of the glass has one. But boy, are they clinging, and not giving up. Strange. No lacing however.
Aroma is chocolate and coffee. Toasted malts. Malty, and clean. Some caramel, some liclkrice.
Taste is bittersweet, like chocolate. Toasted malt. Not too sweet, maybe a touch bitter. A touch smokey, or maybe it’s ash. A little molasses.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied. Soft carbonation. Very smooth, very clean. Could use a touch more body, but otherwise, excellent.
Overall, it’s a fine porter. Not quite what I expected, but still not disappointing. That odd head hangs on to the very end. I would recommend this, and I would buy it again.

Deep black color with a small, light brown head. Notes of cabernet, chocolate and dark coffee. Taste of milk chocolate, dark roasted malts and smoky molasses. Full bodied and creamy with thick, malty, bitter finish. This is a nice one,very rich and satisfying.
