3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
From bottle. The pour was brown colored with a thin to weak off-white colored head, mild lacing. The aroma was chocolate malts, barley, molasses, and faint roast. The flavor followed, a pretty good melding of porter-ish flavors, the coffee detectable here but not so much in the flavor. Moderate to slightly light mouthfeel for the range of porters. Decent brew.
