i just wrote that the brown ale was my favourite from the flight, but i was wrong. has to be the porter. Earthy, malty, chocolate, sweet all followed by a good amount of bitter from the hops. far, far better than the stout. I bit heavier mouthfeel than I am used to with a stout but overall an excellent brew.

Serving: Draft at the brewpub. It pours a dark brown color with a small, off white head. It seems like a cross between the stout and the brown ale. Some nuttiness and light roasted malt notes. Thin body. Not bad.
