"fairly textbook from the english standpoint. maybe a little thin for the american standard, but it’s got a good roasty chocolate and coffee nose with an additional hint of molasses and hops in the flavor."

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Bridgeport, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out notes of coffee and a touch of coffee. Flavour is light, with dry cocoa powder and a touch of coffee. Decent porter, but rather boring.
