2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Concordia Ale House. Pours a light brown with a reddish hue and a quickly dissipating tan head. Everything is in minor portions here: chocolate, roastiness, caramel, the slightest hint of coffee. Unfortunately none of it adds up to a coherent whole and it leaves you wanting more.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Baileys. This was one of the first Double Mountain beers I’ve been disappointed with. Pours red/brown, with a fast falling light beige head. Very light roast, mild hint of chocolate and caramel. Just a bit bland and underwhelming overall, like a classic English porter, a bit more roastiness and body would go a long way.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @ Their Taproom... Poured deep, murky brown (not quite black) with a light brown head that faded into some nice lacing. Roasted malt on the nose. Thick, foamy palate with a lot of dryness. Chalky and some bitter hop flavors up front before the lingering malt went through to the finish. Not very standout-ish as a porter or a Double Mountain brew.
