Draft at the brewery taproom. Pours black, pale tan head, soft yet surprisingly sticky lacing. Nose is soft roast, milk chocolate. Flavours are much drier, with graphite, mineral, anise, tight roast, nice coffee in the finish here also. Very nice porter.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Pours dark, dark brown with a dark tan head. Aroma is lots of dark roasted coffee. Taste is coffee upfront and all the way throughout with a bit of dark chocolate. It’s a much drier beer than I expected but not really in a bad way. Very enjoyable beer.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Near black, with ruby tones at the edges. Very rich dark roast coffee bean aroma, eclipses all else. Generous bitter chocolate and espresso flavours, sweet, with a long dry finish of medium bitterness. Medium mouthfeel. One of the best coffee porters I’ve tried, perhaps made better by the freshness of the sample. I took a growler away with me.
