2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not a bad porter. Their best beer at the Downtown Grill. Smells of maple, coffee, and dark chocolate. It has hops in the finish. The finish lingers about for a while with hop bitterness. Lots of lace hang around the glass.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
4oz on tap at the brewpub. Clear dark red color. Thin tan head, with good retention. Leaves thicker lace. Medium body. Kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Mildly slick, sort of dry finish. Caramel malt, toasty, some mild milk chocolate. Much less dark than the modern american porter, this drinks more like a red or an irish ale. Moderate sweet taste, light to moderate bitter. OK, not great.

Coffee flavor, but not too heavy. Smooth on the palate and one of the more drinkable ones from this brewery.
