Draft: Cloudy, dark brown with a beige head. Light coffee, chocolate aroma. Nice taste....coffee and chocolate malt, again.... A little bit of roast. Pretty decent....just seems a tad on the light and watery side.

Draft to taster at Half Moon. Looks solid; a translucent cola with very thin off-white lacing. Smells solid too; dark malt and coffee. Tastes like it smells with average mouthfeel. A solid example of the style.

On tap at the brewpub
The bigger beers were more interesting despite there only being two on tap. A robust porter has plenty of flavor to keep you interested. At the same time it doesnít abrade the palate and tire you after a pint.

Aroma / Appearance - A fluid brownish base is black around the edges. An ebony head idly sits on top like cake icing. Coffee, licorice, and chocolate are a bittersweet foundation for a nose that also harbors black licorice.

Flavor / Palate - Velvet creamy malts soothe the palate. Raspberry, vanilla, chocolate, and coffee stir the senses into action. A sweeping fruity taste carries into a pleasant finish. This is one of the best porters that Iíve tried in a while and totally unexpected after previous samples.
