3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at C.B. Potts Greenwood Village location. Pour is deep brown with light red hues, a frothy tan head and good lacing. Roasted malt, cocoa, a touch of espresso, earthy hops, grass,and bread in the aroma. Taste is big roast, light vanilla, coffee, dirt, somewhat hoppy, herbal, and chocolate with a light bitter finish. Medium mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Would have loved a little more body, but not a bad porter, by any means.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Schaumburg location, pours a dark brown with no head, the aroma is of slight chocolate and a little bit of coffee, the flavor has a little chocolate on the front end but seems very artificial, almost like coco puffs but the cheap kind that your mom used to buy and not the good stuff, pass.
