A solid Porter, not the most interesting, but well done. Pours a beautiful deep black with a thick tan head. Smells of coffee and vanilla. Taste is creamy, with coffee and vanilla and a slightly bitter coffee finish. Had the nitro version on tap at the brewery.

Draft at the brewery.
A: Opaque mahogany body, creme colored head, OK lacing.
N: Coffee, baker’s chocolate, appreciable vanilla, a touch of smoke and char. Lactose at the end.
T: Sweet, bitter, and smokey.
M: Medium body, fuzzy carbonation, alcohol nips at the tongue.
O: Fine porter. The nose is the most inviting aspect; I wish it followed through to the taste more than it does.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewpub in Portland.
lack and opaque with ruby-brown edges. A durable tan head left streaks of sticky lacing.
Aroma: slightly strong for style, with hints of cocoa nibs and burnt toast.
Flavor: Fortunately, there’s far less burnt/char quality in the flavor than in the nose. Black coffee kicks in for the lingering, roasty aftertaste.
Feel: full bodies with lively, medium carbonation.
O: Decent, dark-roasted version of the style.
