3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Near black pour with a 1 finger, creamy tan head. Aroma is big on chocolate and roasted nuts, a little old campfire smoke, a tiny bit of char and a nice touch of toasted grains. Flavor is chocolate, char, smoke and roasted nuts, then earth, coffee, light tannins, a hint of toasty grain. Light to medium body, a medium to heavy and sharp carbonation neutral entry, dry, slightly chalky finish. Good overall, but the mouthfeel doesn’t really fit the beer, too dry, thin and over carbonated. Still, pretty enjoyable.
B-. Pours a black color with khaki head. Not sure I’m a fan of the nitro, tastes flat AirForceHops (8037) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 18, 2017

Flavor is chocolate, roasted nuts, then earth, coffee, mild roasted grain. Light to medium body, a medium body. The texture is dry and almost chalky finish. Overall, not to shabby.
Got in a trade with The-Adjunct-Hippie. 12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours fairly crystal clear very dark reddish brown color with a 1-2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, brown sugar. toasted oats, and dark bread; with light nuttiness, toffee, herbal, smoke, and roast/toasted earthiness. damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt and light earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of big milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, brown sugar, toasted oats, and dark bread; with light nuttiness, toffee, herbal, pepper, smoke, and roast/toasted earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/spicy hop and roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, brown sugar. toasted oats, dark bread, light nuttiness/smoke, herbal, and roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a great roasted bitter/sweet balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering hop/roast bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready/silky, and lightly sticky/chalky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 6%. Overall this is a very nice American porter! All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth and easy to drink. Really great well rounded malt complexity, with nice hop balance. Spot on style example. A very enjoyable offering. rosenbergh (11957) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 5, 2016
