3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted on 1/17/14 from a capped 12oz bottle purchased at Craft Brewed. Pours a dark brown that lets just a touch of reddish light through and a thick tan head that slowly recedes to rocky lace. The nose is milk and dark chocolate with some roasted coffee, and just a touch of vanilla. The flavor is a little bit more milk chocolate forward with the more bitter dark chocolate and coffee notes taking a back seat and the same nice little touch of vanilla. The body is medium with a creamy texture, average carbonation, and a long finish that brings back the dark chocolate and coffee bitterness balanced by the light vanilla.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A decent starter porter but not enough complexity or flavor for me. Aromas of light chocolate and light roast. Taste is faint chocolate, roastiness, and maybe a taste reminiscent of a flat Coke. Mouthfeel is thin and finish is clean. An ok porter that does not stand out.

Cask at Green Man. Roasty aroma. Fairly uninteresting taste. A little dry, a little roasty. Nothing wrong with it.

Cask pour at the source. The beer is a clear amber to brown with little to no head. The aroma has molasses and toffee with notes of some cooked apples and interestingly enough, granny smith apples. Fairly sweet. Medium body and no carbonation.
