3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught sample at the Cleveland International Beer Fest on 5/14/11. Clear brown pour with a medium beige head. Coffee on the nose immediately, along with a bit of caramel and chocolate. Coffee flavor with caramel malt and a bit of chocolate. More of a brown ale than a porter (or maybe a brown porter). Still tasty though.
