3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a decent looking dark brown color with a soft white to off white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute leaving some light lacing here and there.
The smell had a slightly smooth nutty chocolate aroma that seemed to be lightly roasted.
The taste was mainly sweet yet carried a decent chocolate/nutty flavoring.
On the palate, this one sat fairly light and carried a degree of sessionability to it. The carbonation finished fairly smoothly.
Overall, good porter worthy of having again.

This porter poured a deep black colour with a very small, almost non-existant head that is tan in colour. To the nose there are scents of roasted malt, coffee, caramel and a little cocoa. First sip smooth and rich with a medium syrupy mouthfeel. Flavours of roasted coffee, caramel and molassass most prodominant. finish is sweet with the roasty flavours lingering.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2011 Sampler at the brewpub. Pours a light beige head, over a clear, brown (SRM 30) body.....nose is light coffee, chocolate....taste is light coffee, chocolate, with a slightly bitter finish....mouth feel light, carbonation high. This meets the general style of a Porter, but it is light for the style in complexity both in aroma and flavor. BJCP 7/3/12/4/6
