This pours a dark brown with a tan head that drops away quickly.

Some sour notes on the nose, a bit of milk chocolate and quite a bit of coffee.

Coffee dominates on the palate. The chocolate is there too. More burnt characters than on the nose. Finishes a bit short.

Medium bodied. Suits it nicely.

A nice enough beer but I'd like a bit more going on.

Pours black with ruby highlights and a small lasting head.
Nose shows dark chocolate, chocolate liqueur, roasted malt and nutty notes. Nice stuff.
Similarly rich flavours, lots of liquorice, roasted coffee and cocoa. A little full on and brash however.
Could use a fuller, creamier texture.

A: Nice creamy slightly tan one finger head. A bit of yeast left in the bottom of bottle.

S: Lots of dark chocolate and roasted coffee.

T: Dark chocolate. Slightly bitter roasted coffee.

M: Maybe slightly thin mouthfeel for the style. It would be nice to see a more rich round body to match the rich chocolate and coffee flavors. Fairly crisp finish.

O: Nice easy to drink porter.

Nearly black throughout with hazy red showing at the edges. Thin tan head leaves good lacing.

Nice coffee and roast malt aroma. Bordering in stout territory here. A touch of licorice as well.

Heavy malt with the same roast character and some smoothing coffee and chocolate. a good dose of bitterness in the finish closes things out nicely.

One of the most stout like porters I've tried but still an enjoyable, warming beer.

Had on tap at the Local Taphouse.

Pours a dark brown, slightly woody around the edges. Head is beige, a thin crown but retaining what's there quite well, leaving nice sticky trails of lace around. Yeah, looks quite nice.

Good porter smell; roasty but not very burnt. Quite a lot of coffee notes, with slight sourness that almost becomes meaty at times. A bit bland, but all the right characters in good proportion.

Tastes quite roasty, with dark chocolate notes at first that quickly attract coffee characters heading towards mid-palate. Slight char flavours and a bit of vanilla come through later. Loses a bit of its intensity on the mid, where flavour just coasts through mildly without adding anything. Finish is roasty and espressoesque; not bad but could use either more sweetness or more booze to lift the flavours a bit. Overall the palate profile is slightly lacking. Decent porter but not a fantastic beer.

Good texture; quite smooth, not a lot of body but there's not meant to be, complements the flavours well. Yeah, quite good

The slight sour roasty note comes across at times a bit like cold coffee. Only slight, but it's there enough to make me think twice while drinking. But I'm enjoying it enough. Again, decent but not brilliant.
