2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Uggh, you want to like something you have never seen...now I wish I had never seen this. Nose is nice, roasted malt some chocolate wafting in the background...taste is a porter with a shot of water. Way too light.
From Dec 2006
Poured from 12oz bottle(room temp) a dark brown with reddish hues and a large billowy head of foam that shrank but stayed as a solid layer for the entire session.
The smell is on the light side but I can sense some chocolate and some roasted malt.
The taste is also light. Some chocolate makes its way to my taste buds followed by just a touch of roastiness. That smooths out even more until the finish where I can just taste a bit of bitterness but that disappears quickly leaving very little flavour in the after taste.
Bottom line: A light tasting sample of the style that is just missing a bit of oomph to make it a more drinkable Porter. Bacchus66 (1073) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 10, 2017
12oz bottle at the Bit and Spur. Dark brown with a thin off-white head. Some cocoa notes on the nose. Flavors are light milk chocolate, some toffee, roasted malt. Light carbonation and body, thin finish. Very light style, a session porter? Great name and artwork though. GenDV138 (7959) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - AUG 22, 2017

Bottle, 355 ml at George’s Corner, St George. Pours black with medium beige head. Roasted malts, chocolate, bread, bit nutty. Sweetish with bitterness in finish. Medium bodied. Somewhat watery. jandd1983 (4720) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - AUG 6, 2017
On tap. It poured a brown color with an off-white head. The aroma was of roast, nuts, toffee, hops and some bread. The taste was similar to the aroma with more roast, nuts, toffee, hops, bread and a hint of chocolate. It had a light body with nice carbonation. Not bad.

A watery taste inspite of it's is dark of appearence. Only 4,0 alcohol. Good for killing your thurst.

Grabbed this while on a layover in the Salt Lake City, Utah airport. Went for here because most of the underage people I was traveling with were at different concourses. Had seen this before, but I think this was the first time I had tried it. Maybe way back in the day on another trip to Utah.
Poured a dark brown color with 3-to-4 fingers of rocky khaki head when I got it. Serene setting underneath. Outstanding spotty lacing. Almost perfect retention. (Sight - 4.50)
Smelled cocoa, milk chocolate, toffee, brown bread, nutty malts and maybe even a touch of vanilla. A tad light, but that is expected for 4.0 pct. ABV. (Smell - 3.75)
Taste was not quite as good. Hard to get that much flavor into a 4.0 pct. porter I bet. Got cocoa, chocolate milk, nutty malts, light coffee, even hints of vanilla, and semi-char wood. (Taste - 3.25)
Medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long slightly roasty finish. (Feel - 3.50)
Not as bad as I thought it would be. Not quite as thick as I’d want it, but I enjoyed it. (Overall - 3.50)

Tap at corner bar with commonmac during March madness. Dark brown black with creamy off white head. Malt nose. Taste is muted sweetness, roasted malt, watery chocolate. Creamy but thin. Quick weak finish. It’s a good thing i have other wives to choose from. JPDIPSO (6317) - Wauwatosa, USA - NOV 30, 2016
Brown to umber in color. Taller and stable tight bubbled tan head. Roasted malt and touch of raw veggies in the aroma. Decent roasted malt flavors. Fairly acidic. Not bad, just not very interesting. 7/11

Very dark brown with a small beige head.
Chocolate, dark baked bread aroma.
Nut bread, chocolate malt taste....
Drinks with a surprisingly nice heft for such a light-weight.....pretty rich tasting....
Not bad at all.
