This bottle was from an Evolution variety pack. Looks tasty, a very dark brown. Aroma was chocolate and maple syrup. Taste chocolate, raisins, a slight bit of smoke. Fairly thin watery feel to it. An ok porter. highwayempire (21) - North East, Maryland, USA - JUL 3, 2016

Outstanding. It’s dark chocolate appearance. Smell is hard to identify. It’s not overwhelming, it’s refreshing as well. Nice finish. Great brew. r464 (2377) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 12, 2016
Dark and roasty malt. Caramel, toast, char. A bit of cocoa and some sweetness along with a smoky flavor. Lighter than a smoked malt, though. Smooth and long in the finish. altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - MAR 8, 2016
