4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a finger and half of tan head on a black body.
The aroma is mostly roasted malt and burnt wood, really nice.
The flavor is balanced and deep, roasted malt, burnt malt, charred wood, and mild bitter finish.
The texture is smooth with low to moderate carbonation.
An outstanding porter.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Porter blind taste #2. Aroma is much bigger than the first. Sweeter, with coffee and caramelization. Appearance is darker than #1, deep brown with small ring of head. Tastes: like a dry, soulless, faded cola without enough syrup. Palate: light body, small-bubbled carbonation, chalky texture. Overall: I liked the nose at first, but the rest was a disappointment.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Porter Blind Tasting #2. A little more brown in color that the first porter. Strong coffee character from the malt, not actually coffee. Light ashtray and faint toffee. Flavor is a little sweeter with some toffee essence but not sugary sweet. A little dry finish and some sandpaper like roughness at the end. More dull than anything else.

On tap at the brew pub. Dark brown pour with a light brown head. Sweet chocolate malt aromas. Smooth and creamy with bitter dark roasted malt and expresso highlights. A bit astringent. Good body and mouthfeel.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Black pour, beige head. Interesting aroma - chocolate, lactose, fairly sweet with a little funky earthiness. Flavour is the same, a thin palate. Good flavour, a bit different, but kind of watery.
