3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From the 12 fl. oz bottle notched out at March (2014). The color is dark brown with reddish notes. Small tan head. Odd aroma of buttered biscuit and malts. The body is thin to medium. The taste has a buttery feel to it like the aroma. Just odd basically.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Ashy, smokey aroma of cocoa and burnt drift wood. Very dark brown color, still. Somewhat bitter, roasty flavor. Unfortunately suffers from a light body for the porter world, and what’s there is smooth to a fault. A decent porter except that last part.

Draught. This is a pretty boring porter without much to distinguish it from the herd.
