3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a growler, same day as fill. A thin tan head on a dark brown body.
The aroma is wonderful: chocolate and roasted malt in perfect balance.
The taste is on the light side: roasted and chocolate malt. What’s there is good though.
The texture is lighter bodied with moderate carbonation.
A good porter, worth drinking a few of for sure.
