look: 2.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Poured a clear, semi-dark ruby brown throughout with a whitish beige head that fell apart all too soon.

Smell: Rich chocolates, malts.

Taste: The beginning peaks rich and sweet; the middle calms down into the richness of the chocolate; the end fades into a soft coffee or mocha flavor that lingers on the taste buds until the next sip.

Mouthfeel: It was a bit light, but I think this one was wanting to go for that.

Overall: An interesting light porter with a pleasant taste and smell, but I'm fine with just one.

Poured from bottle to pint glass, black with a small head. Aroma of dark roast / barley malt / coffee, bitter finish with lingering coffee notes. Watery and thin. Not bad for a porter, but not something that I would seek out in the future. Take some home for the wives!

I bought this one at a Total Wine and More in Glendale AZ, so it's hard to say how old the beer was. Overall disappointed, but kind of figured seeing that it is a novelty brew. If there ever were any aroma or flavor hop additions, they were long gone from the bottle I drank and I could not distinguish any of the bittering hops. Could not make out any yeast flavorings either, this beer was very clean of distinct flavors, no caramel or roasted notes.

Plain ale with black malt additions ...nothing more.

This beer had a beautiful dark color and reddish held to the light, one of the best looking beers I have ever seen ...unfortunately, that was the only good thing to say about it ... I don't buy beers to look at them.

To be fair, I will try to find a fresher one and change this post if in fact it is better.
