3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can from some dump in Middlebury. Near black with lasting tan head and lace. Spicy hop aroma with chocolate and cola. Roasted chocolate, chocolate chip cookies, coffee, cola, pretty sweet, medium fruity with roasted woody hop finish. Fairly dry, creamy fine carbo. medium body. Probably could have done without the extra sweetness from the dextrine, but still very good and very complex for an everyday porter. .

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black with red highlights and a medium offwhite head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is of coffee, chocolate and chicoree. Taste is lightly sweet and loaded with roasted malt. Slightly ashy. More coffee and chocolate. Body is light to medium and carbonation moderate and mouthfeel a little creamy and smooth (oatmeal-like). A bif weak for a porter, still. Overall a fair porter but not something I would come back to.
