3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Glass at the Festival with James. Pours a dark brown, nearly black with average head. This porter was ultra bitter with overly roasted coffee bean, wood, and tobacco smoke. Light to medium in body with too much carbonation for a porter. Too much

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Backlogged rating: Deep brown with a very frothy tan head and good lace. The nose shows roast, coffee, slight mocha, resin and herbal hops with faint pineapple and fig. The taste has moderate roast, bready and nutty malts with a touch of coffee bitterness. Faint fruit and grainy finish. The bidy is thin to medium, lively carbonation and ashy finish. it is okay, not all that complex really.
