3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear dark brown body with a one inch fizzy light brown head that had decent retention due to the heavy carbonation. The nose is slightly sweet and chocolaty with a light roastiness and a touch of huskiness. The flavor is rather sweet for a Porter with some milk chocolate and light coffee notes, minimal hops. A little bit of a nutty flavor on the finish. Medium bodied, a little clingy, with soft light carbonation. Not exactly in my sweet spot for the style, I prefer them a little drier.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Whole Foods, Durham. Nice surprising porter from a young local brewery. Rich dark brown pour, thick and chewy looking, with a moderate head and very nice lacing. Fruity nose was my first surprise, a nice touch shot through the full chocolate aromas that emerge quickly. Slight taste of bitter hops at first, tends to complement the sweeter flavors really well, with a moderate roasted quality that comes in at the finish to accentuate the bitters. Really enjoyable brew!
