3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: The pour is a very dark brown with a bit of reddish notes and a thin khaki head.
S: There’s quite a bit of sweetness to the nose. I get caramel and sweet chocolate. The roasted malt and coffee notes are a bit more subdued.
T: As much as the roast is in the background on the nose, it’s surprisingly strong and "featured" on the palate. Lots of roasted malt flavor with a nice bitter chocolate compliment. Some slight caramel sweetness and a bit of an earthy hop flavor.
M: The body is medium with a smooth and almost creamy feel on the tongue. The carbonation is moderate.
D: Not quite an amazing porter, but quite good. Solid in all aspects.
