3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Taster on tap at the brewpub. Labeled simply "Porter". Dark brown color. Thin off-white head, decent ropes of lace. Very nice big coffee flavor, hint of dark fruit. Light roast malt, good long coffee aftertaste. Light to medium body. Lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Moderate bitter taste, lighter sweet. Very good porter. Probably my favorite from what I tried during my visit.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Dark brown to black body with a short, but lasting tan head. Pleasant aroma of sweet milk chocolate and roasted malts with a hint of coffee. The flavor is lightly to moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately bitter and dry. Lasting bitterness and an astringency in the aftertaste. The taste of unsweetened, bitter chocolate is in the forefront and behind that is sugary sweetness. Medium body with a watery texture that’s fairly smooth. The flavors and tastes in this beer seem at odds — at once too sweet with too much lingering, biting bitterness.
