Poured into a Maudite snifter. Pours a very dark brown with reddish tones. Two finger light brown head with decent retention and pillowy lacing. Aroma of dark roasted malt, chocolate and a faint soapy element. Flavor of light toasted malt with light coffee and chocolate finishing with a subdued chocolate and toasted malt aftertaste. Light to medium bodied, thin for a porter. Thin and lightly flavored, pleasant but forgetable. Fulfills its mission as a cheap, drinkable porter.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Thick and dark like a good cup of coffee. Moderate foam and lacing.

Smell: Watery roasted malts, mainly coffee and chocolate.

Taste: Watery roasted malts. Coffee and chocolate, caramel, and hints of dark fruit.

Mouthfeel: Watery and thin, but fairly smooth. A decent roasted malt aftertaste that disappears quickly.

The Verdict: Average. There are much better porters out there, but there’s nothing to really complain about.

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

Pours a clear deep brown with amber highlights and a half inch tan head that dissipates somewhat quickly, leaving thick lacing.

Acrid roast character, dark fruit, coffee, malt, and chocolate form the aroma.

Acrid roast malt and coffee dominate the flavor, which finishes a touch bitter. Dark cherries and chocolate add complexity. There's a nutty toffee note.

Body is fairly watery with carbonation on the low side and an astringent finish.

Not a bad brew, but the acrid character is offputting. A touch on the bitter/charred side.
