2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2014 (Bottle) Very little hoppiness but lingering bitterness and astringency. There isn’t really any nice dark maltiness to it. Although the aroma is of chocolate (and is really quite nice), the taste is uninteresting, thin, and muddled. Compared to other porters it has very little rich chocolate or dark fruit flavors that I look for. I’m very surprised by how well this is rated. Not a good porter.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle @ Jungle Jim’s / Eastgate OH --- Opaque dark brown color, rocky 1" tant head that retains well, bands of lace. Taste is good roasted malt with a dose of chocolate (I don’t really detect coffee). Both merge and move smoothly to a lightly bittered finish. More sweet shows the longer it lingers. A very drinkable/enjoyable light stout, somewhat rich and milky. I like it.
