Pint at the brewpub. Pours brown with a medium tan head. Caramel malt aroma with a hint of roast. Sweet caramel flavor up front with a teeny bit of roast and hop bitterness on the back end. I prefer a bit more roast character, but not bad.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
July 17-19, 2008: Drawn & Portered is a good, fun name. It described as beer that has a very deep brown color with a ring of beige around the edge of the top sruface. The aroma has notes of chocolate and roasted malt. The flavor is like malt extract with hints of molasses and toast, and is slightly sweet and nutty. There is even a touch of coffee in there as well. This medium-bodied porter is fairly good.
Draught sample at Jackie-Os Pub and Brewery in Athens, Ohio during Ohio Brew Week 2008. Rating #4 for this beer.

Bread Coffee and Malt is the nose, a very base smell, very dry and chocolaty however the beer is lacking in complexity and balance. Not a bad start but this beer needs a little work.
