3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the brewpub
Dark brown color, almost black, with beige head. Light aroma of roasted malts. Good structure, with pleasant flavor of dark chocolate and roasted malts (just a bit too roasty for me), at least not too dry; correct bitterness.
Leaning a bit near Stouts, but quite good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2010-07-01. Very dark brown body, modest tan head and nice lace. 4+ Flavour has a pleasant but muted sweet malt core, dry roast gains bitterness and coffee grounds character as you go on, which adds to the flavour but is not to my tastes. Roasty aroma has dry coffee undertones, briefest hint of mocha. Average palate is ok but thin for the style. Pretty decent porter. On tap at Diamond Knot, Mukilteo
