3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at The Pine Box in Seattle, WA. Pours a black body with a finger-width, creamy, dark brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is roasty and earthy with a nice chocolate note and a hint of fruity esters. Flavor is similar. Roasty with a nice chocolate backing and a medium-light earthy bitterness. Touches of fruity esters before this finishes dry, roasty, and earthy before leaving a lengthy aftertaste. Medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty straightforward, but enjoyable porter. Roasty and earthy with a nice chocolate backing that stays sessionable and dry. Nice beer.
