2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Originally reviewed: 10/25/10. 22oz bottle, poured into a pint glass. Pours a fairly transparent dark ruby-shaded mahogany. This was an odd color. Not as dark as expected. Small head on top. No lace. The nose was slightly roasted, some vinous scents, and hints of coffee. Nothing really bold though.
The mouth was moderately carbonated. Not as smooth as Iíd like. A little slick and wet on the back end. This Porter was not bold in any way. Light roasted flavor, some minor chocolate sweetness, but more overpowering in the fruit flavor. This Porter is off base. Nothing to really stand on. I appreciate that this is organic, but thatís about it. I likely wonít get this again. Move on to better Porters.

Definitely one of the better porters Iíve had. Pours dark brown from tap with a thin khaki head. Pretty sizable coffee notes on the nose. Coffee on the tongue as well as hints of chocolate. Finish has some hoppiness to it which dries the tongue nicely.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz courtesy of nimbleprop. Poured a muddy, amber to brown with no head and more like bad cask conditioning bubbles. Aroma is super nutty, pecan pie, roasted walnuts. Taste is watery, slight roasted malt, slight barley husk. Really nothing much to the body. Would do alright as a brown ale.
