3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a deep brown with a small, tan head. Taste is pretty sweet for a porter. Very malty taste, chocolatey. Small burnt taste, bit of hops on the finish. Mouthfeel is pretty thin for a porter. Solid beer though.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours dark brown with some ruby edges. 1/2" off white head, small amount of lace. Mild chocolate nose with a little roasted malt. Palate was full, smooth and creamy. Flavor was powdered chocolate, a little malt with some minor hop flavor. An ok porter.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark brown-black body without much head. Thick caramel, brown sugar, soap, too much bad hops. Not only was it so-so but also it was hardly a Prter. Two things I’ll never find: the Trojan horse from the Greek Troy and a good Porter in this NY Troy.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap @ brewpub: relatively thin black body. Aroma is roasted coffee with hints of chocolate. Also the aroma came off as slightly weak or watery. Flavor is the same with some hints of caramel, slightly bitter finish. Overall a pretty weak porter.
