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.

Pretty solid porter. Good malty one. Cocoa and burnt coffee notes. Creamy texture and a slightly milky taste too. Had this as part of a flight at Fountain Square brewer in Indianapolis.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Andy, 8/2/14
Aroma: The aroma is a mix of sweet caramel/toffee, coffee, and roasted malts
Appearance: It pours a muddy brown color with a thin head and quite minimal lace
Flavor: In the flavor the coffee comes out more, while the sweetness mutes a bit compared to the nose
Palate: It has a light-medium body with a smooth, clean feel, soft carbonation, and a roasted finish
At first I thought this one was going to lean sweet, but the flavor is actually much drier than you’d expect from the nose. It gets a hint watery though, unfortunately, but it is still a pretty solid beer.

An average brew from fountain square. In general not impressed by their brews. Much better options exist. This doesn’t taste like a porter however.

12 ounce bottle. Thin body evident in pour and taste. Thin head that quickly fades. Upfront coffee taste. But I wish this beer had more body.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Poured a clear dark brown color with an average frothy tan head that mostly lasted and produced good lacing. Moderate roasted dark malt aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is the good brew.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
tap at the brewpub on Sep 1, 2013 - Pours up a medium amber color. It’s a light color for a porter. The aroma is led by roasted malt and includes some coffee. It tastes of dark roast malt with mild coffee notes. It’s light bodied with a moderately bitter finish. It’s alright though I’d like to see more body and flavor intensity in a porter.

Growler courtesy of StFun, thanks man! Dark brown pour with just a tiny bit of off-white head. Nice roasty aromas of coffee and chocolate. Flavor is similar. Fairly light mouthfeel which makes it easy to drink. A good example of the style.
