3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a tasty American-style porter. It’s nearly black in the glass w/ a small head of fine brown bubbles. This has a solid roast character, lots of coffee and a bit of cocoa w/o any harsh or ashy elements to get in the way. Texture is suitably creamy w/ mild carbonation and a touch of sweetness brings out some fruity cherry notes around the edges. This is pretty down the middle for the style and well done. I’d say it rather thicker than more milkshake-like than most porters but in this case that’s pleasant. It might not be the best choice to down a sixer of but it’s a darn tasty beer for sure.
