Tap@Brewpub. Just a hint of chocolate in the aroma. Brown colour, off-white head, fair lace. Very sweet, light bitter, cola, some chocolate, sugary, sticky mouth feel. Too sweet and nothing else there.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught poured brown with thick off white head. Aroma of chocolate, malt and roast. Malty body rather sweet but a good accompaniment to what I was eating. Notes of chocolate, coffee and cocoanut with enough hop. Well worth having again.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to Larry and Anna for this nice beer--Poured a light brown-mahogany body with a medium fluffy off-white head. Body was thin in appearance compared to most PNW porters, but very nice. Nutty, roasty nose with layers of robust maltiness. Mild hops kick in the finish. Slight bitterness, but nicely balanced. Not too sweet. Finished with a mild coffee presence. Well built and easy to drink.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at the brewpub. Something of chocolate malts and a touch of dark roast for aroma. Very dark brown color with a beige head. Starts a bit sweet with burnt toast following. Some hop bitter and some coffee. A nice porter, but perhaps a bit sweet in the finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours medium brown with a red hue at the edges, small off-white head. Nice english porter, nice as bold as most you find here brewed in the PNW, but more true to the old roots. Toasty malt base with a nutty caramel flavor, list roasted chocolate notes, and some sherry notes in the finish.

Decent, a very solid porter, tastes like those chocolate malt balls you used to get as a kid when you went to the movies. Nice variety of flavors, nutty and chocolately with a rich creamy cocoa finish.
