Pint @ Naked City. Serviceable porter, but not nearly as good as the American Brown my wife had. Hot damn that was one fine brew. All I remember about this one was how less porter-y it was than the brown.

Tap @ brewpub. Dark brown appearance with a creamy, dark brown nose. Roasty, slight charred, chocolate, light espresso nose. A little watery. Char, roasty, chocolate flavor. Reminds me of a watery version of a Scandinavian porter.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lightly roasted malts on the nose, hints of chocolate, light earthy notes, and a touch of hops. Pours dark brown, thin tannish head. The flavor is lightly roasty, notes of chocolate, light underlying sweetness, and a moderately dry earthy finish. Hints of bitterness show up but are light. A balanced solid house porter.
