3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at College Inn. Pours nearly black with minimal mocha head. Aroma is surprisingly mild - a little chocolate, a little something almost floral, some dough, but thatís all I get. Taste: also mild. So so mild. Lightly sweet, but nothing comes through very strong. I guess thereís a little bit of roast in the finish, and just a bit of earthiness, but for the most part this just tastes dull. Creamy texture, light body. Overall: see after4everís rating, which is pretty much spot on.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a nearly totally black color with a medium grey head. The aroma is light roast, caramel, some fruit. The flavor is a fairly heavy roast, the chocolate and black patent come in, some deep minerals/heavy roast. A bit of sweet milk. Good.

A good looking dark brown porter with a tan head. A sticky, roasty nose. Plenty of slick, milky body to it. A mild bitterness with heaps of chocolate throughout. I am going through this pint at speed.
