Overall its not bad, but the weakness in feel doesn’t bring out the taste very well. I am not exactly desiring or feeling a need to want to have this again. Its unfortunately not that memorable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Tyler’s, Durham, a while back. Dark brown pour with reddish highlights. Not the most substantial appearance, but the beer had a decent head to it. Soft, chewy aromas of oatmeal, a hint of molasses, dry hops, the whole coming across like some sort of cookie affair. Thinnish mouthfeel for the style but the flavors were enjoyable, with some sweetness and more roasts coming through. Solid porter.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Thin, lacking richness and extremely overcarbonated porter. This gets a 2 because the nose showed some nice roasted aromatics.

On tap. Pours a dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of sweet malt, caramel, maple. Flavor is sweet upfront with maple sugar, sugary caramel (creme brûlée), hazelnut, light roasted malt. Light palate. Definitely on the sweet side but not overpowering. Pretty tasty.
