3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub. Black in color with a brown head of big bubbles. Aroma is strong with coffee and licorice and a bit of chocolate. Body is thin, but frames the flavors nicely. An unusual absence of hops except at the very end which gives a bit of palate bitterness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap@21st Amendment, Brewery,Restaurant and Bar. Just a nice roasted bitterness, toasty, with great balance, couldn’t ask for too much more in terms of drinkablity and flavour when it comes to a porter. Decent stuff.

Tap. It was game day against the Minnesota Twins. Black in color with a light brown head. Chocolate malt flavor with a medium body, but it did not have a big flavor and aftertaste.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep dark roasty all over, bit of charcoal, light bodied, nitrogenated, appreciable but not substantial hops. These are lighter, not necessarily more balanced brews and a daring move in a region full of gargantuan beers.
