On tap at CC : The smell is roasty with notes of cofee, and a bit of chocolate. Dark brown with a small beige head. The flavor starts with moderate roasted coffee with some very subtle chocolate and coriander. Also, a bit sweet. This medium bodied beer finishes with a coffee aftertaste.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
draft at the brewpub. interesting roasty, lightly hoppy aroma. if it werenít a porter, i would guess it was cascade hops in there. lots of whitish head, lots of roastiness in the body, with a good mouthfeel but itís a tiny bit thin on the finish. lasting malty aftertaste. good straightforward porter.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark brown with hints of red, and a solid beige head. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee and burnt toast, real thin on the hops. The flavor is bitter then malty, sweet toffee and roasted. The finish is okay quick and thin. Overall, not a bad robust porter, a good example of the style, but not overly exciting (iíll order the IPA next time).
