3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance was a deep brown color with a fingerís worth of hazelnut colored head. Sly trickling lace.
The aroma had some roast, bakerís chocolate, marshmallow/or somewhat like vanilla tones, ash and then some grassy effects.
The flavor tried to blend the roast to the sweet, but had that separated sort of taste to it. Came in waves, sometimes sweet, sometimes roasty. Aftertaste was more marshmallow. Finish was just sweet.
The feel was about medium bodied, perhaps a tad under with a fair sessionable quality about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt fine.
Overall, wishing the flavor was more combined. But for the most part, it wasnít bad.

keg at brewery, 3 june 2014 (part of taster flight). aroma is coffee, licorice, chocolate. coffee dominates. strikes me as ífizzyí for a porter. judgement may be clouded by the fact that on the bartenderís recommendation this was the last beer in the flight and the Satisfaction IPA came immediately beforehand.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured a deep brown with a thin tan head. Aromas of chocolate and roasted coffee. Mouthfeel was quite thin. Tasted of bittersweet chocolate with coffee, but finished off with the strangest rubbery taste--like tires. I almost didnít finish it and got another, but in the end I finished off the glass. Definitely would not bother to order it again and would recommend to others to try something else.
