AROMA: Milk chocolate and roasted malt. Very sweet with some piney hops in the background. Lovely! 11/12
APPEARANCE: Deep dark brown to black proper. Large, dark tan, frothy head. Excellent lacing and retention. 3/3
FLAVOR: Intense roasted malt up front with resiny/piney hops in the middle. Finishes with milk chocolate candy sweetness. Very delectable for a non-imperial stout. 18/20
MOUTHFEEL: Medium/full body, though not viscous or sticky. Well carbonated and smooth throughout. No alcohol presence. Nice aftertaste of resin and chocolate. 5/5
OVERALL IMPRESSION: This epitomizes the old "Robust Porter" style which was discontinued with 2015 regs. Can definitely hang with the big boys when fresh. 9/10
TOTAL SCORE: 46/50

Bottle… Pours black with a quickly dissipating head. The aroma is toasty and chocolaty. Medium-bodied with a 2%-milk mouthfeel and lazy carbonation. The flavor is lightly roasty and nearly perfectly balanced. Lingering, comfortable, roasty aftertaste. kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 29, 2015
Pours a clear dark brown, almost black, body with a frothy brown head. The nose is chocolaty and sweet with cocoa and sugar. A light roasty note. The flavor is fairly solid, sweet chocolate and coffee with a little burnt roastiness. Minimal to no alcohol notes. Light to medium body with fizzy carbonation. Decent Porter, but not a standout.

Pours a very dark brown with tan head. Coffee, raw dark chocolate, and some anise on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a little spice and roasted malt.
