Good beer, I am a little surprised this was rated so high. Nice hop taste with dark semi-sweet malts. I guess I just don’t like porters how I used to. I will stick with IPAs and Belgians.

On tap at the Boulevard brewery tasting room. Maybe would have been better if I had washed out the lingering taste of Love Child. Was expecting more sweetness. Like the Early Riser much better.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Originally rated on 9/11/08. "I like bottle conditioned beers, I cant remember if i ever had a B.C. porter though, it was kind of interesting. The secondary fermentation led to a massive tan head that would not go away. Intial aroma was very faint of apples, then the malty coffee took over. Mouthfeel is smooth but not too heavy, the heavy carbonation gave it a little bite. Flavor of coffee and carmel with a dry finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty dark pour with a retaining mocha head that leaves some lacing. The aroma is surprisingly faint with a bit of roast coming through. The taste is a complexity of bitterness. The roasted malt and hops far out weigh anything sweet that may be implied. It’s a little difficult to drink with all of the bitter flavoring but overall a pretty solid beer!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours black with a one finger white head with nice lacing. Aroma is of roasted malts, chocolate, sweet malts, toffee, and light hops. Taste is about the same as the aroma. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi creamy, slightly bitter, medium finish. Overall, a pretty tasty, drinkable Porter.
