2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2013 A porter with easy flavors. Coffee, chocolate, nuts with a roasted medium bitter dry finish. Good mellow balance of sweet, sour and bitter, making it quite easy going. Has a nice creaminess to it. But there is something going on I don’t really like. Some sort of acidity that annoys me and ruins the beer.
