3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at When Pigs Fly, Kittery. Deep brown in color. Aroma is coffee grounds, chocolate, caramel and crushed walnuts. The flavor is very nice. The malts are layered showing a depth of chocolate, nuts, cocoa nibs, and maybe ash. The body is great for the style and had a wonderful creamy texture over the palate. Fine drinker.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Muddy Waters in a pint glass. Dark cola brown in color with nearly tannish head. Aroma is roasted malty and nutty with a little raisin like dark fruit undertone. There is also some peat coming through. Taste has plenty of overarching coffee/porter qualities including a roasted bitterness and an almost chocolate sweetness. There is a pleasant combination of Belgian like chocolate and Belgian like dark fruit. Mouthfeel is smooth and almost milk like. Really enjoy the coffee characteristics and the nutty, nearly peanut butter, presence. Once again this brewery delivers a robust offering that everyone should seek out.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Way too fruity for my taste. Maybe this place needs to clean their taps, but this is not a good porter.
