not my favorite porter. Looks great with the dark brown color and a good tan head. After that the flavoor just doesn’t do it for me. just a very light flavor and not enough of what I expect from a porter.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Had this beer on 11/3/2000. Aroma is a deep roasted scent. Color is a dark almost black. Carbonation is good as well as head. Taste is mildly bitter and roasted. Stating with a full body it goes down with a smooth creamy feel. Finish is big coming on with a deep roasted flavor backed by a mild bitterness and finishes off with a dry feel. This is a very nice Porter.

Bottle: Poured very dark brown with lasting medium tan head. Aroma of chocolate and roast malt. Roast malty body with chocolate and hop notes. As bear warmed, the finish became fuller and mouthfeel greater. I found two stray bottles of this in a market. Is this no longer being bottled?
