2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled from the tap at the brewpub. Poured a cola brown with a grayish brown head that dissipated slowly to the edges. Aroma was verry sweet with caramel, some sweet dark grains and a bit of butterscotch. Flavor was similarly sweet with sweet dark grains, caramel, a bit of chocolate and a butterscotch finish.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampler flight on tap at Moonshine (Chicago, IL). Pours a nice roasty brown hue, gorgeous ruby edges, not opaque, actually near transparent but dark. A frothy light tan head dies to a decent sized ringer, laces ok. Aromas are touches of dry cocoa, brown malts, and some sweeter toffee, toast. Simpler. Maybe a touch of roast. Initial iis a big blast of brown malts and cocoa up front, surprisingly light bodied with a touch of orange, dry earthy brown malts, some bread, biscuits. Really light bodied porter with a kick of orange, earthy malts, and toast, some sweetness. Weird. A bit of a dissappointment. Finish is a touch of cocoa, smooth sweetness, some brown malts and oatmeal like sweetness. This doesn’t come together well. Probably the biggest dissappointment of the sampler (and it had the biggest hopes).
