3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught, 5% at the brewpub. Coffee aroma. Dark brown colour. Seems hazy. Small tan head. The flavour has a mild coffee note. A bit like instant coffee, not so bitter. Beginning to think this is the coffee porter...

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at 508 w Andy and James. Really deep color for a brown. Chestnut/almond aroma with light, uninteresting lacing. A little watery but not overly nutty on the palate. Subdued, which is a plus since I’m not crazy on the style at this point.
