I picked this up because I had a hankering for porter and not much cash. I'd never seen a dark beer in pint cans before, and I was intrigued by the label art.

A. Poured from a pint can into a pint glass. Pours a dark, chocolatey brown with some mahogany color around the edges when held up to light. Billowing tan head shoots up even with a gentle pour, but subsides fairly quickly. By the time the pint is halfway through, the head is completely gone and can't be roused.

S. Lots of sweet caramel malt up front followed by just a hint of alcohol. My sense of smell isn't great, but I can't detect any hops or roasty/coffee notes. Not a whole lot going on besides sweetness.

T. There's a huge, surprising bitterness on the first sip that really takes you off guard following the almost cloying aroma. It just tastes messy. Too much hops fighting with a kind of acrid bitter coffee flavor. As it warms, the cloying sweetness from the nose starts to creep in and overwhelm the already cluttered flavors.

M. The thickness is more or less on par for a porter - thinner and more drinkable than a stout, but with enough body to discourage chugging. The carbonation seems to explode out of it though. It's very lively, almost excessively so, for the first few sips, but it starts to feel flat and oily about halfway through. Drink it ice cold if you're going to at all.

O. I shouldn't have been swayed by the label art. This beer just doesn't work. It's too strong for a porter, and the hops and the malts don't blend well. I suppose I should have expected as much for a $6 four-pack of pint cans, but I had to give it a try. Will not buy again.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Poured into a perfect pint.

4.25 A: Clear dark brown color. Two fingers of frothy beige head. Retention is good and glass covering lacing is left.

3.75 S: This smells a lot like amaretto and hazelnut coffee. Fairly sweet and roasty with caramel and toastiness. Smells quite nice, but doesn't have a lot of depth.

3.25 T: The taste is good, but like the nose it lacks depth. Roasty with hints of chocolate, caramel, hazelnut, and coffee.

2.75 M: Lighter body. The carbonation is a bit aggressive, but it's okay. Lacking body and creaminess.

3.0 D: It's okay, but nothing to go crazy over.

Poured from a bottle into a stout glass head fairly small and is a dark cream color a little darker than cinnamon butter you sometimes get at restaurants. Body of the beer is very dark pretty well impervious to light short of the edges where some leaks through. Smell is very chocolatey with a very slight cherry essence. Tastes great, slightly bitter-sweet chocolate and smooth across the tongue with lingering bitterness that fades within a few seconds. Overall I'd get it again, a nice random pick up from the grocery store.

Serving Type - Bottle

Appearance - Black with traces of ruby red/tan. 1/4 creamy head with some nice lacing.

Smell - Roasted malts, brown sugar/molasses. Coffee, some dark chocolate. Classic nutty aroma mixed with some raisin and plum at the finish.

Taste - Well, it looks good, smells good, now on to the taste. First sip has a grape/raisin/plum fruity flavor. The malts are the backbone but im surprised because of the smell, its not sweeter. The coffee aspect is also not as strong as I expected.

Mouthfeel - Dark fruits coat the tongue with some sweetness. Malts, and mild coffee come out on the palate. Aftertaste is watery, light malts and some dark fruits.

Overall - This isn't bad at all. Not the coffee/chocolate porter flavor that most have but, this is smooth, flavorful and easy to drink. Would be a fine starter porter for anyone, or for a change of pace. For the price, I think was 7.99$ a 6er, its worth the price but I can get great lakes Edmond Fitzgerald for 8.99$, which is a far superior porter.
