1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
On tap @ Hops Golden. Reddish brown appearance with a tan head. Slightly roasty, caramel malty nose that’s pretty weak. Weird bitter, roasty nutty caramel flavor. Why again do they mix the amber and the porter?

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This draft brew from the brewery poured a medium sized head of foamy creamy finely sized light tan colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a semi-hazy softly carbonated brown colored body and an excellent lacing. The mild aroma was brown malt and roasted malt. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a strong brown malty aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of mild roasted malt and brown malt. A decent one that I would consider buying again.
