3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft pour pint at the brewery. Pours a dark reddish brown color with a cream foam head. Mild nutty, chocolate aroma. Flavor is a nice roasted flavor with hints of coffee. Chocolate candy in the late palate. Has a bitterness to it in the finish as well. Enjoy the toasty flavor here. Good brown here. Or porter? Not sure. It’s good though.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Toasty coffee biscuit. Not much going on in the nose - the flavor hits in the mouth with a sweet and bitter coffee. Surprisingly light with a sprightly mouth feel for a porter. If you tasted it it blind you might not guess its porter nature until after you swallow and the malty bitterness has a chance to show.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Filled a growler and poured into pint glass. Decent head, light tan in color. A very dark brown in color. Not much going on in terms of aroma. Mild sweetness and a bit nutty. Very good lace trails the sips. Well balanced porter, lower body. Mouthfeel was average with a lingering bitterness. I don’t think this will be a go-to beer for me but it will work for most beer geeks but probably not for the true porter connoisseur.
