2.05/5 rDev -42.6%
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into an ale glass
Appearance: Dense, very dark brown color with a thin, quickly dissipating tan head
Aroma: Overall there is very little aroma, but with repeat evaluation there are faint hints of walnuts, earth, and pine needles.
Taste: Harsh hops are out of balance with any malt flavors
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with a brief bitter aftertaste
Overall, I was disappointed with this rather bland, tasteless, out-of-balance porter.

3.6/5 rDev +0.8%
More reviews copied from notes.
Served on tap in St. Louis.
Beer is dark brown (not quite black), minimal light penetration. Short tan head, small stream of bubble kept a floating cap of foam, thin string lace.
Aroma is roasted grain, mild coffee and chocolate. All of the solid 'porter-like' flavor to be expected, roasted malt, cocoa and chocolate, bitter coffee to finish.
Medium in body and mouthfeel, not overly sweet to leave a cloying aftertaste.
When nothing sticks out (good or bad), it must be a good one, bang on the style.

3.53/5 rDev -1.1%
Poured a very dark reddish brown with a small tan head.
The smell is roasted malts and coffee, too subtle for me though.
The taste is much the same as the smell, roasted malts, with a tiny amount of bitterness.
Mouth fell is medium with low carbonation.
Overall decent but average porter.
