2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A decent, if not super interesting porter. Pours a nice black with a not super thick tan head. Smells of coffee and vanilla. Taste is a little hoppier then expected, and also a little less creamy. But not bad! Had on tap at the brewery.
