On tap at the brewpub. A clear dark reddish brown beer with a dense, beige head that lasts. Roasted aroma with coffee, some charcoal and dark chocolate. Medium body, really smooth on the palate. Dark chocolate, coffee and roasted malts in the flavor. Some bitterness towards the roasted finish. Thin on the palate, else it’s a very fine porter. 130818

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Another solid beer from Oak Creek. Some chocolate notes in the aroma, very opaque. A good beer. Some faint coffee, any more and I’d hate it. This is smooth at the end and not sweet. Good stuff.
