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.

Great Porter, has the dark and warm feel of a nice Guinness with a lot more flavor, the carmel flavor is a great touch

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 donít have s lot of local porters so yea for that!

64 oz growler into a pint glass. Had no idea this took gold at GIBF, congrats Back East!
A - Pours a dark brown/black body. Lets a bit of light shine through. Nice and foamy two fingers worth of a tan head forms and settles into a thin cap with plenty of large bubbles. Lacing and retention is moderate.
S - Milk chocolate, lightly roasted malt, coffee, and some vanilla. A touch of floral hops. Very inviting and pleasant. Great balance between sweet and roast with neither really outshining the other.
T - Milk chocolate, sweet vanilla, bitter coffee beans and some metallic notes. Very solid porter. Mouth feel is medium bodied with average carbonation making for a highly drinkable beer.
O - Just a well rounded porter here. Very tasty and highly drinkable without coming off as too sweet or too roasty as some porters tend to. Back East is doing some great things.
