Sample at the brewpub. Dark brown pour with a medium beige head that recedes slowly. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of chocolate and sweet malt. Light-bodied with flavors of chocolate, roasted malt and coffee. The finish is roasty with a chocolate malt aftertaste. Decent all around.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep dark brown coloured body with a tan head, some lighter glows when held up to a light at the bottom, as well. Light to Medium-bodied; Nice roasty malt flavour with a hint of earthiness and vanilla at first and some caramel later on. Aftertaste shows more of a refined roasted malt flavour with definite oaky and dry qualities and some light sweetness. Overall, a decent and respectable porter, but bordering on the lighter side made for a good drink. I sampled this pint on draught at SeaTown Restaurant in Seattle, Washington on 10-February-2013 for US$6.00.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Solid porter with great malt and hops. The nose and flavor have a nice nuttiness and ease to drink even in summer. Ok Seattle summer.

Quite a bit of coffee in the aroma, some chocolate too. This is actually much smoother in flavor than in the aroma. Roasty, but not too heavy or grainy, this is a pretty tasty porter and not too sweet.
