3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap and Nitro poured of course: A deep brown hue almost black with a large nitro produced tan head and good lace. The nose detected notes of walnut, chocolate and black malts, and some grassy hops. The taste is a straight forward easy going malt based porter with light acidic and fruit notes. The finish has some minor bitterness and hints of bready yeast. The feel is thin and lively, smooth and easy to drink. A good brew all things said.

Aroma of smoked, toasted dark malt, with scents of chocolate, coffee and some piney hops. Taste is full bodied, with flavors of caramel, chocolate and some floral hop taste later. Finish is smooth, creamy and then a floral hop aftertaste. Pretty average porter.
