4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle (Courtesy of Headbanger) poured into an English Pint at 41°. Color is a dark brown with a bit of maroon. Carbonation is good with a small tight tan head. Aroma is toffee and roasted malt. Body is medium with a crisp light mouth feel. Flavor is deep roasted malt that gives a note of toffee sweetness, then coffee and a touch of dark fruit. After taste is more roasted malt and a dry feel. Overall it’s a great Porter, complex with a nice balance of sweet and roasted flavors.
