On tap (growler). Barely translucent dark brown with a small amber head. Coffee and a tiny bit of hop in the flavor, with a finish thatís a little more sweet than bitter. A really solid porter; Iím a big fan.

Pours dark translucent mahogany with a thick foamy tan head. Aroma is roasted grain and honey. Mild carbonation in the mouth with coffee, chocolate and roasted grain on the tongue. Medium bodied with a slight oily texture in the mouth. Finish is a tad bitter. This is a pretty good Porter.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Dark brown but clear brew with tan head - translucent when held up to the light. Nice aroma of roasted grain with ints of coffee and cocoa. Taste is semi-sweet roasted grain up front with an emerging complexity of grain, roast and moderate hops in the finish. Fine and well balanced. Rock solid porter.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle, sent from wilco (thanks a lot, Mike), pours a dark brown with an amber tinge and a medium tan head. Nose is soft, with notes of cocoa powder and very light roast. Flavour is robust for a porter, with notes of dry cocoa powder and rather robust roasted malt. Not quite at stout level body, but quite robust nonetheless. This is pretty much everything you could ask for in a porter. Highly drinkable, highly flavourful, and balanced. Excellent stuff.
