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.

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