On tap at Suttree’s Tavern as "Park West Porter". Black, with a creamy brown head. Smells like espresso and dark chocolate. Taste is more of the same. No surprises, just a solid, well made porter.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Park West Porter on tap at PPD. Pours a nearly opaque deep brown with some thin, off white head. Nose is interesting, almost a hint of sourness, toast, malt, straw, light nut. Flavor has no sourness Which Is good, some toasted wheat, a little cherry, malt, bread, black pepper, smoke. Dry finish. A little strange for my taste.

This one poured a medium brown color with a beige head. Aroma was of light roast, chocolate, and mild hops. Flavor was watery, and brown malt, not really porterish im looking for.

Draft at Stone, brown pour, light tan head. Roasted malt, chocolate, light nuttiness, and hops. Pretty standard porter, although I can’t say it’s is bad either. Just a typical porter.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Ale House @ Amato’s, listed as "Vandberg/green flash park west porter". Clear black with a thin off-white head. Aroma of semi-dark coffee with some bitter floral hop tones and a mild bitter chocolatiness. Flavor starts sweet with a roasty dark malt tone, quickly turns bitter with the same floral and herbal hop tones from the nose. Semi-sweet chocolatiness throughout. A little too American-hopped and bitter, not enough roasty dark chocolaty sweetness. Basically a black IPA.
