3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
The color is very dark amber, with small creamy head, not as dark as expected. Very light aroma of roasted malt. Dry mouthfeel; there is some flavor of roasted malts, coffee, roasted nuts; overall it has a roasty and dusty character; correct bitterness.
Not a real Porter, more a crossover with a Stout.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aromas of dark chocolate with a hint of sweetness. Medium bodies, good depth of flavours and quite smooth. Cocoa, coffee, and a little bit of sweetness made this an enjoyable porter. Finishes with a roasted bitter note.
