Aroma has firm tones of quality coffee, semi-sweet chocolate and molasses, plus subtle earthy and nutty notes. Pours a rich, opaque coffee brown with a light golden tan head. Flavor has coffee, molasses, chocolate and earthy notes. Texture, though seems rather thin for a Porter. However, that is the brew’s only weak point. Enjoy the legend.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Served up a dark brown body capped by a slightly off-white head.

Smell: Dark, roasty maltiness with a notable bitter chocolate element to it. Very light fruitiness. Fairly neutral hop component, contributing little to the aroma, but, like the ghost of grandma, you just know it’s there.

Taste: Roasted malts open with a sharp, sudden snap of bitter dark chocolate. Slight astringency. Low dark fruitiness. Herbal, floral-hinted hops play a minor role in the flavor, mostly just yielding a little bitterness. Roasty, chocolaty finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-light carbonation.

Overall: Fairly solid porter.
