3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Opaque brown-black, long lasting head, bands of lace. Taste is clean roasted malt with a hint of coffee/chocolate. Bittering shows early in the palate, which distracts from the normal porter expectation. Drinkable, but not equal to many porters already more familiar to regular drinkers.
