"very roasted, almost like a dry stout. unfortunately we had this as a taster right before Pipeline (w/Kona coffee)...that one is so much richer that this one seemed boring in comparison. solid effort, though, if it were to stand on it’s own."

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from tap to glass at the Kailua brewery. Opaque black hue with creamy light brown head that lingered nicely. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, cereal, roasted malt. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium body and soft creamy carbonation. Taste is dry malt sweetness throughout with an astringent bitter following that rounds out in the finish. Overall this is a pretty nice Porter.

On tap @ the brewpub. Heart roast profile, bitter coffee and cocoa, dry finish witha modest bitter bite. The hops are lost somewhat in the hard roast flavours, but still a highly enjoyable porter.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewery, served in a tasting glass. Pours a hazy dark chocolate colour, with a small light brown head that fades to a thin remnant and leaves no lace. The nose has big notes of deep roasted coffee, smoke and chocolate along with medium herbal hops. The flavour is medium-dry with lots of smokey, roasted malts, chocolate, coffee. Soft herbal hops are present as well. The finish is long and roasty-herbal. On the palate it is medium in body with a dryish texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a nice dry porter with nice roasted malts. 2013-08-10
