3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep brown, smooth texture, semi-creamy flavor... some burnt malts, nice wood flavors and a dry palate. Balanced, and overall light, with less flavor than most porters. Very smoky licorice nose. Pretty good smoke finish.

Tap@Big Time. Its not a bad porter, simple, but tasty enough. Sweetish raisin toast flavour, some roasty/choclatey flavours late. You’ll probably be coming to Big Time for their IPA’s though.

Dark brown color, you can almost see through it if you hold it up to a bright light. Frothy brown head. Chocolate malt aroma and a doughy sourness. The flavor is dominated by the sourness. Bitter finish.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This has some potential, however: Weak on aroma, flavor, mouthfeel, aroma....pretty uninteresting. The basics are there, they just need more amplification.

Somewhat sweet and has hints of roastiness. Though I found this a little thin. It was my least fav at the pub.

Had on tap at the brewpub in Seattle. Very good brewpub Porter. Black as night appearance; mocha colored head with decent lacing. Has some good bittersweet chocolate notes. No "dirt" aftertaste - good strong finish.
