Nice full bodied porter. Black pour. Lots of charred, ashy aromas. The taste was more subdued with chocolate and coffee. Still very roasty. Nice.

Of the Proof regulars this is probably my favorite. It’s got the complexity I look for from a porter but it’s very well balanced.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a rich, deep brown. Nice creamy tan head and pretty good lacing. The aroma isn’t too bad: heavily roasted malt and charred oak. The flavor is a deep roasty sweetness. Some earthy woodiness. Silky-silty mouthfeel, nice full body, and low-medium carbonation.

Fruity, olivine aroma with very light creosote. INky. Tan head. Very smooth, lightly sweet, a bit fruity. Generally, just a clean and rich beer. Roasty finish. Good drinking. Dark cocoa very apparent in the finish. Proof, on Tap w/PorterPounder.

Pours a nice opposite brownish black on tap with fluffy tan head that laces nicely. Aroma of roasted malt, hints of soy, and English yeast esters. Taste follows, add some dark chocolate. Thick on the mouth for a porter, very nice.
