Really bitter. I was not impressed with this beer.

Trader Joe's has some superb beer offerings but this one is not tops: Lacking in body and complexity but drinkable nonetheless. Unlike many other commentators here, though, my glass did have nice lacing all the way down.

12 oz bottle poured in a wine glass, decent porter.

The nose is quite remarkable albeit it inappropriate at times. Chocolate syrup, molasses, maple, dry barley, plums and soy sauce. The flavor has a very dry chocolate malt, burnt coffee, charred embers, barley grain and a strange sweetness I can't identify. Not bad for the price but not great as well.

Bottle: Poured a clear dark color porter with a medium size light brown foamy head with OK retention and some light lacing. Aroma of light chocolate and roasted malt notes is enjoyable. Taste is a mix of chocolate malt with some roasted malt notes with some light dry finish. Body is light with good carbonation. A bit short on complexity but well drinkable.

Deep, chocolate brown color with average head and decent lacing. Aroma is light, with malt sweetness being the dominant smell. Taste surprised me a bit, was expecting a little bolder flavor, but got a little less. Ok taste with malt being the highlight, and some roastiness also. Seems to be little weak for a porter. Mouthfeel was good, nice carbonation and such. A little weak and watery for a good strong porter.

Best before 06.09.15.

Cola brown body, 2 finger head (bubbly), average retention with good hanging lacing. Roasted aroma; flavor has a fruit profile to it mixed with coffee which makes it awkard to my taste. Bit of a coal like feel and the body is thin. Overall a less than middle of the road porter.
