3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Belmont Station, Portland. Pours a dark color, good amount of tan head. Aroma roasty, coffee, clean. Body light, lively, crisp, much like a traditional English style porter, but a good amount of coffee. Not amazing, but not bad, either.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a 500ml bottle (shared by Butz - thanks). Has a huge coffee aroma with a good dash of brown sugar and some caramel. All the aforementioned features in the flavour as well. This a coffee bomb, with sweet mocha overtones and just a hint of dark fruit. The bitterness is moderate, the body medium, and the carbonation subdued. Really easy to drink and packed with flavour. If you’re into coffee, this is a must try. One of the best I’ve had from this brewery.

Bottle. Strong coffee aroma. Stronger coffee taste. It has hints of chocolate I it as well. Fairly smooth without too much bitterness. Ok but not great.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
16.9 oz bottle, as Coffee Porter. Dark brown with a thick beige head. Nose is coffee bean, tobacco and musty cocoa. Milky medium body with odd fizzy carb. Egg cream meets latte. Taste is espresso, licorice, chocolate and vanilla. Finishes with burnt marshmallow. More a milk stout but it’s about the coffee. Good.

Thanks dresden. Dark brown body with foamy brown head, some lacing. Heavy aroma of coffee, tomato, straw. Taste is coffee, but not super intense. Kind of subdued palate. Not bad.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (500 ml). From dresden, thanks! Hazy brown with a light beige head and little lacing. Aroma is of strong coffee, light vegetables, milk chocolate and light spices. Taste is slightly sweet with coffee, vegetables, milk chocolate, light spices and light bitterness. Light to medium body. Silky mouthfeel. Moderate carbonation. Balance is average at best. Too much green/vegetables notes. Subpar Porter.
