I am a fan of deeper and darker porters. The Oatmeal porter, while good, is missing the deep coffee/chocolate taste of other porter offerings. I consider this offering to almost in essence be a "lite-porter" if you catch my drift

Draft. Pours dark copper brown with a thick, creamy beige head. Tastes like very roasted malt, toast, woody, lightly burnt coffee. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like creamy roasted malt, nutty.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark brown with a thin tan head. Slight chocolate aroma with more hops aroma than most porters. Thin mouthfeel but with a nice medium taste. Not to malty or hoppy taste.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle, served in a pint glass. Pours dark brownish black with medium thick creamy mocha head. Aroma is smooth dark roasty malt, light creamy chocolate notes. Taste is crisp super smooth dark chocolate malt, light roasty notes on the finish. Really well balanced. Oatmeal makes this incredibly smooth. One of the better straight porters I’ve had; in the same league as Black Butte, Edmund Fitzgerald, etc. Only shortcoming is perhaps a little light on the hops.
