Roasted notes on the aroma even a little wood. Pours brown with red tinges and a short tan head. Same burnt characters in the taste, coffee is there not really choclate though, a touch thin, maybe cocoa bit of crystal and some pencil shavings.

UPDATED: MAY 23, 2011 On tap at The Monk. Pours brown with some red tinges. A small tan head is produced. Aroma is traditional roast malts and coffee. Not overly big or complex. Coffee makes up the bulk of the flavour with some upfront fruits as well. Very solid after re-rating this one

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Served on tap at Pizza Port OB. The appearance is a brown black with a smaller beige head that is pretty creamy. The aromas are a bit muted. The tradition roasty malts you expect from a good porter. The flavors have some more too them. A medium roast malt base with good semi-sweet milk chocolate additions, some cereal grains, and a touch of like smoke too. The mouth is medium leaning a touch more to the full side of the spectrum. A bit creamy like fat-free milk. A basic but decently done porter.
