2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
An indistinct porter, mild bordering on boring, and while it doesnít taste bad, there isnít much here to recommend. The beer is dark brown with a giant mound of foamy head that necessitates a very slow pour. The aroma is slightly bright coffee and mild caramel. There is a little spice on the back of the tongue, too. Not bad, just nothing remotely special.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very good porter. Pours a dark brown almost black, with light tan head, but not very much of it. Nose is roasty, maybe a little chocolate. Taste is very balanced between dark roast, some chocolate notes, some toastiness, and a bit of bitterness from some West Coast hops. It isnít a flavor bomb, but a balanced flavor profile. Feels full, carbonated, and creamy in the mouth, and finishes nicely.
