3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at the brewpub. Pours a clearish, deep amber hue with a creamy head. Toasty malts in the nose, light cocoa, dry toffee. Light sweet flavour with mellow toast, leafy hops, earth, light coffee. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Finishes with more toasted grains, earthy bitterness, touches of dried berries, faint coffee and cocoa. So so. This is the closest this brewpub came to making an acceptable beer.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Keg at the brewpub, 01/02/16 as Rebob Porter.
Dark amber with a decent off white cap - not very porter like in appearance ... kind of washed right through!
Nose is light roast, toffee, charr, malt, grain, pretty basic.
Taste comprises toffee, light cocoa, grain, malt.
Medium bodied, prickly and overcarbed, sweet and bitter rinse in the close.
Pretty poor effort at a porter, almost like it was watered down.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at the brewpub. Pours a clear dark amber with a small beige head that settles into a thick ring and laces the glass. Notes of toasted and chocolate malts, cardboard, nuts, dry leaves, and brown sugar. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and an earthy, toasty, bitter, and - yep, you guessed it - chalky mineral mouthfeel. Frustrating beer. Should be better.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap @ Downtown Joes. Black in color with a khaki head. Watery and roasty beer that is just kind of burnt toast water. Not really a whole lot going on. Maybe a hint of marshmallow sweetness. Mediocre at best brewpub porter. Meh.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught at Downtown Joe’s Napa. Clear deep copper liquid with small off-white head. Looks like Coke. Aroma of coffee, licorice, bread and biscuit. Taste is light sweet and light bitter with notes of coffee, ash and bread. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Very weird. Very pale for a porter.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at source. An inviting chocolate aroma initially with moderate coffee. A weirdly light brown or dark red color. Seemingly light for a porter. Taste is mostly caramel with a light roasty character. No real chocolate or coffee in the flavor. A light mineral character. Weird.
