pint @ Horniblows Tavern. ok aroma, sweet, roasty, coffee, little sour milk. Blackish brown color, ok head and lace. bitter flavor. Medium body, lite smooth mouthfeel, dry finish. It’s a fine everyday porter, flavor my favorite part, decent roasty chocolate taste. but nothing particularly outstanding. I thought for sure this was the porter from a year or two back but the bartender and an twitter question both say it’s a different recipe,
