Pint @ Rock Fish. Practically perfect representation of a porter. Beautiful coffee bean aroma with a subdued roasty body. This should be drank in great quantities (over long periods of time).

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub/restaurant pouring up deep dark mahogany with garnet edges and thin tan head. The aroma is very mild and vaguely speaks to dark roasted malts and really nothing else. The taste brings up a modest level of highly roasted malts, some black licorice and a touch of chocolate malts. Nice balanced roasty porter.
