3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted on 6/12/14 from a corked and caged 750mL bottle purchased at Bangor Wine and Cheese. Pours very thick, completely black with a thick dark brown head that slowly recedes to a thick collar of lace. The nose is roasted dark chocolate, fresh coffee grounds, marshmallow, vanilla, and some molasses. The flavor is about the same, really filled with tons of vanilla, marshmallow, dark chocolate coffee cake, and plenty of molasses. The body is very full with an almost creamy texture, just under average carbonation, and a long nicely bitter mocha cake and light vanilla finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle purchased at 7-11 Kittery, ME. Very dark brown color, very mild head retention. Aroma is similar to the pie. Chocolate and vanilla cream and brown sugar. The body of the Porter is normal for the style with a lightly dry roasted finish that shows a sustained chocolate and vanilla hints through the sip. The chocolate is really abundant. Much better offering than the other sample I had from this brewery, decent.
