2016 Philly Beer Week draft at Deschutes Street Pub. Pours semi-opaque cola-brown with a touch of a tan head. Aroma of coffee over nutty malt. Body is medium and just a touch oily. Mild finish. Flavor of nutty malt underneath a note of coffee. Slight note of char.

The first porter I remember ever trying. A true classic in every right. The perfect balance of malt, chocolate and roast characters blended to create a creamy mouthfeel. Medium-bodied with a rich brown color. The aroma is caramel malt with a subtle roastiness.

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 doesn’t taste bad, there isn’t 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.
