4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at padres beerfest. Pours mainly black with some brown hues. Aroma is of good coffee, roasted malts, coco, and caramel. Taste is similar but also has even better coffee flavor and some nice vanilla flavor. Has a medium body with a slightly watery yet still slightly creamy mouthfeel, and roasty moderate finish. Overall, a tasty porter that makes nice use of coffee from my favorite coffee roaster.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Almost black in color with a small khaki head. Plenty of coffee on the aroma. Lots of chocolate, somewhat nutty, and a hint of dark fruit. A decent amount of roasted malt, too. Unfortunately a somewhat watery flavor. Good coffee notes, roasted malt, dark chocolate, a bit of coffee grounds, subtle fruit, and some toasted nuts. Just okay, but not awful.
