3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
A murky brownish black with a beige head. The aroma contains some chocolate, toffee, and caramel. The flavor is rather sweet with some chocolate, nutmeg, caramel, and molasses. This is more like a brown ale but has some porter characteristics. Overall a nice beer.

The label says "robust dark ale" so I was not expecting the deep, dark, flat porter that landed in my glass. For a porter, it was just a tad "burnt" rather than " roasted" for my taste.

A very typical porter to me, other than being a bit "lighter" and drier than other porters Iíve tried (not a lot, since itís not my favorite style). Pretty decent beer. I think this one finishes my tour of beers I brought back from Indy, and I was fairly impressed with Flat 12 and really, really like Sun King Osiris. 12 oz bottle from Crown Liquors downtown.

Bottle... Pours clear and dark brown with a brief khaki head. The bouquet is chocolaty, nutty and grainy with a mysterious note of date, dark raisin or fig Ė canít put my finger on it. Medium-bodied with a thin mouthfeel and modest carbonation. The flavor is roasty and well-hopped, leaning just a touch toward the carbonic and bitter side of balance. Finishes with cocoa and minerals. Bottle courtesy of StFun!

FROM NOTES: July 20, í12
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a tasting glass.
A: Roasted grain with hints of chocolate and cocoa.
A: Pours a deep dark brown with minimal light penetration around egdes of the glass and a one-finger, tan head that fades very quickly. Personally, Iíd like to see a little better head retention. Excellent lacing, however.
T: Follows the nose very closely, but more more pronounced. Classic porter and freakiní delicious.
P: Medium Bodied with good carbonation.
O: Overall this is exactly what a porter should be. Its not going to blow your mind but its a good porter! BTW, Pogueís Run is the little creek behind the Flat 12 Brewery and the label art is a nod to the beautiful smile of Shane MacGowan (The Pogues)

12oz bottle. Mostly clear very dark brown, slightly red color. Thin tan head. Leaves decent ropes and dots of lace. Medium body. Very smooth, lighter carbonation. Very easy to swig. Good roast malt, and dark chocolate flavors. Hint of coffee. Good moderate bitter taste, bitter sweet. Very enjoyable, tasty, easy drinking and bold robust porter. One of the best Iíve had in a while. Was great to enjoy with my sandwich lunch.
