Draught at Keyaki. Average porter with a dark chocolate profile, some burnt malt, bitter finish. Not too impressive, just another porter really.

Nice, smoky porter. A Texan bbq in beer form. Aroma is lacking, which is a real shame.

BOD 3/2/15. Pours dark as a starless night. Slightly below normal head volume and retention, normal lacing. Light nose of roast and cocoa. Medium body with a texture that is quite smooth and has strong creamy notes. Excellent carbonation with a mild burst of effervescence from the middle on. The very nice flavor profile is reasonably intense, a bit complex and superbly balanced. It begins with a mild blend of roast and cocoa. Chocolate is hinted at, at best. The middle brings a mild balancing hop bitterness with a hint of sweetness. The finish is a slow fade of hop and roast bitterness. This offering is certainly not bad, it is quite good actually, but lacks the flavor intensity and complexity of world class porters such as Victory at Sea or an outstanding one such as Founders.

Draft to taster at Thirsty Monk pour opaque black with moderate tan head. Nose light roast and chocolate. Taste some dark fruit then roasted malt. Light chocolate flavors mid to late. A little muted compared to others in my flight.
