3.05/5  rDev -20.8%

Pours a deep amber witha small head and leaves some lace. Fruity aroma with hints of dark chocolate, yeast and a buttery scent. A bit thin for a porter but did have a smooth mouthfeel. Taste started roasted malt and grain with a little spiciness. Finishes with a somewhat sour twang that is undesirable. If the aftertaste was better, this would be pretty good. Could have been a bad bottle, so I may give it another shot.

This beer is a very dark, almost black, tea-like color. It presents a very thin, shallow head and a magnificent roasted grain aroma. Also, the smell has some floral characteristics and a little alcohol can be detected. The taste is of bitter coffee, with burnt and roasted grain flavors. Overall, the beer is very dry, however, and nicely complex. The finish is a lingering bitterness. Great beer...I liked the bottle too.

Oily black w/ rusty accents, pours with almost no head. Strong dark chocolate with hints of roasted coffee on the nose. Taste is roasty, malty and sweet with prominent bitter chocolate and coffee notes. Very thin mouthfeel, finishes rather brief with a faint lingering smokiness. Drinks very smooth and easy with blatant yet pleasant flavor.

Presentation is a dark green color old medicine bottle. Pours a nearly black color, hardly any head or lace...perhaps a slightly off bottle…if so it did not effect the flavor much. On the nose there is the aroma of dark chocolate. Mouthfeel is really smooth and slick. On the palate the flavors were, dark chocolate, coffee, slight sweetness, buttery, and roasty malts.
Enjoyable…

3.2/5  rDev -16.9%

Pours a deep amber and decent head. Huge baked apple and raisin nose. More apple on the tongue held up with roasted malt and some grain. Although there are some good things happening in this brew a most evident sour and fruity character make it weak as a porter.

Forced to buy this, you know who has ever seen a 12oz oval bottle? Anyway a good porter, some dry spiciness, low carbonation and head.
