3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the brewery. This brew poured a large head of fine to medium sized bubbles that left behind an excellent lacing and an opaque black colored body with no noticeable carbonation in it. It had a strong coffee aroma to it and a smooth coffee mouthfeel. This brew tasted more like a stout than a Porter with its coffee flavor.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Faint cocoa aroma, along with a bit of coffee and hop. Deep brown-black in color with a light tan head. Malty, mocha-toffee flavor profile, definite semi-sweet chocolatey malt as well, and a nice, spicy hop bite. Some chocolate sweetness blending into the finish. Nicely balanced.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark but thin with a watery toffee head. Crisp malt start with faint coffee finish. Lighter than most porters. Decent, but thin.

I liked this one better than the stout. Better flavors, but could use more body.
