3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft / guest tap @ Willimantic Brewpub. Nose is light caramel candy and weak notes of chocolate. No surprises with the flavor it is exactly as it smells. Melted caramel candy with a chocolate finish. I understand I’m drinking a porter and not a stout but... The body is ridiculously thin and watery. This would be much improved with some more fullness. The flavor itself is respectable yet not memorable.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Cambridge House Brewery. Pours a thin clear dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, bitter chocolate, charred malt. Flavor is oddly medicinal- lots of cherry cough syrup and sweet roasted malt. Blech, something went wrong with this one.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft into mug. Dense bordering on opaque brown. Roast notes in the nose cut by a hint of maple syrup. A bit on the body did for my preference in a porter, and not add malty as I hoped. Still a bit of today pops through.typical shorter finish with lingering notes of light roast coffee. Respectable as goes porters if not remarkable, but we also don’t have s lot of local porters so yea for that!
