3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle (from stfun)
Appearance: Opaque black with short lasting off-white head
Aroma: Fruity, alcohol, chocolate
Taste: Fruity, banana undertones, with slightly bitter dark chocolate flavors
Palate: Full mouthfeel, slightly chalky, unique cocoa like bitterness, but finishes sweet and dry.
Overall: Interesting porter that brings in some elements that make it quite enjoyable and different than "american" porters.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Clear darker brown pour. Actually a really dark red would be more like it. Heady is light and creamy then rapidly falls to a ring. Nose is flowery and herbal hops mixed with some chocolate, coffee, and toasty aromas. Flavor is again, chocolate, burnt coffee, toasted malts and has a distinct minerally profile. Low carb and a full body. Pretty tasty.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of coffee grounds, roasted nuts, roasted malt. Flavor of roasted and charred malts, roasted nuts, peanut butter, and chocolate. A roasty, coffee flavored porter. Excellent!

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A nice creamy and rich up front taste that is smooth. A bitter aftertaste with some acidity. Roasted barley flavors and cola flavors. Not much for aroma. Nice chocolate appearance with a thin tan head.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark brown-black with a taller khaki head that leaves some solid lacing. Nose of toffee and nuts, light mocha and coffee, and a fair hoppiness, somewhat more reminiscent of a brown ale. Some sweetness with more bitterness and a light tartness. Fairly active carbonation, slick, with a longer roasty finish. A pretty decent brew.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very good porter, all the toast/chocolate/coffee tastes that you’d expect are there. It’s one of my favorite styles when done right, and this one definitely is. I will have to go on an Indy beer tour someday and try some more Fountain Square.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle pours a medium brown color with a brownish head. The initial aroma if of roasted malts and ground coffee with some mild chocolate blend. The flavor is pretty close mot the same. You get that roasted malt and coffee action with cocoa powder in the middle and end. Not the best porter but not the worst.
