3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
Nitro draft at their Frederick, MD restaurant, opaque dark brown color with light tan head. Aroma notes of roasted malt sweetness, chocolate and faint nuttiness. Taste adds more chocolate syrup, faint coffee and dark fruit. Medium-light body, low carbonation (nitro), creamy with sweet roasty finish. Pretty nice nitro porter, maybe a tad thin.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
21st May 2015: BJís Laguna Hills outlet. Part of an eight glass flight. Thought this was the best of the eight beers I tried on the day. Ruby hue to the dark body, on top a lightly tanned foam blanket. Malts all the way here, fairly sweet initially it bottoms out a little drier and roasted latter in the mouth. Hides the alcohol well with itís depth of flavours. My sweet tooth took to this.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Kind of disappointed in this. It tastes like a pilsner that is porter flavored. It looks really good but just doesnít have that thick porter taste that I like.
