3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: Almost reminds me of a Schwarzbier; chocolate is subdued and a dry roast pervades; some solid herbal/floral hop presence in tow; not even a suggestion of sweetness. Appearance: Solid black pour with a big, sticky mocha head that settles into a sticky crown. Flavor: Starts off light enough with a touch of chocolate; roast is ever present but not dominant until towards the finish, where it leads a bit of a crescendo; lingering bitterness is low but present. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: A pretty nice porter; wouldn’t know there were oats involved without being informed.
