3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft: pours a very dark brown with a tan head. Just what you’d expect from a great porter, lots of chocolate and roasty coffee. Nice and earthy, but very drinkable still. This is a great porter, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a dark brown with a thin light tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate. Flavor of sweet malt, light roast, light peat. Very light porter, easy drinking, not as roasted as I expected, probably closer to a brown ale even.

Good roast. Strong presence of coffee balanced nicely with bitter chocolate. Very light. A good session it’s just missing something

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On draft from the taproom at the Rhinegeist Brewery (basically because I tried I tried to sample it at the former Elder Cafe at Findlay Market but they stopped serving at 6 p.m. and I decided to walk a few blocks up Elm Street to get Panther Porter) - This is a dark brown brew with a tall, lasting tan head of foam and an interesting grainy-cocoa aroma. Tastewise , it was very good, but I thought it lacking a very small bit on the balance... still a good beer, though.
