Can. Pours a nice deep, porter-esque brown with a thin mocha head, little retention (almost none... but could be the glassware). Nose is roasted malt. Mouth is medium bodied, some roasty notes, hints of chocolate, coffee, ghr usual things you’d expect from a standard Porter, with a pretty clean finish all things considered (a slightly sooty back end) Not that it’s a bad thing, but more like unremarkable in the way you’d use it as a measure for the definitive porter. Technically solid, just nothing innovative here.

Tap at the brewery. A paragon of the style! Some roast coffee with dark chocolate notes. Pours a nice dark brown/black with great flavors and a nice, slightly bitter ending. Maybe a tad sweet, but I like that in a porter.

Draft. Poured a dark brown color with an average frothy light brown head that was mostly lasting and excellent lacing. Moderate roasted coffee and sweet chocolate malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium roasted sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. can pours a dark brown with lasting tan head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, and roasted malts as expected, but with hints of raisins and vanilla as well. Taste is on the sweet side, with a long chocolatey finish. Mouthfeel is creamy and body is medium. A very good porter I am sure to try again.

Clear, medium brown color with an off-white head. Roasted malt, chocolate, and good quality coffee aromas. Very appealing! Nice roasted flavor without being too bitter. Not too heavy either.
