Had off tap at the brewery. So similar to two beers porter, just slightly more root beer like flavor. As I continue to drink the sweetness in this brew stands out. Medium body that stays through.

Bottle from Lep Ro Kan market in Moses Lake. Dark brown/black pour, initial giant beige head. Aroma is toast malts and milk chocolate. Taste is sweet and mildly bitter, more chocolate. Body seems a tad watery, but pretty tasty stuff.

Bottle shared. Dark chocolate with some light dark fruit, roasted malt and coffee notes. More of the same on the palate. Simple and straightforward porter. Light but in a good way.

Draught at Hathor. In my series "a porter is a porter", this one qualifies with the typical flavor profile. Nothing too exciting but well executed.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Schooner Exact, pours a dark mahogany / brown with a small tan head. Aroma reveals notes of chocolate and toasted nuts. Flavour is dry and fruity, with red fruits and light cocoa. Leaves a little something to be desired - a little too much fruitiness for a porter for me. Still, decent.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft - Dark roasty notes with a hint of burnt toast. Deep jet brown with a rich light brown head. Roasty malts, Berry notes and a light burnt taste. Decent.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bottle pours dark brown, almost black, with a quickly thinning but long lasting cream head that looks like a nitro. Aroma is of biscuit, toasty malt, chocolate. Flavor is similar but also bitter, watery coffee. Mouthfeel is thin and light, active, watery. Overall somewhat underwhelming... it was great until I actually put it in my mouth.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Uber, Seattle. Dark, creamy brown, lacing foam. Mild body, a little under, cola and rosehip. Chocolatey, roasty coffee and tootsie roll. Nice enough

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thin brown head atop a deep brown body. Nose of coffee grounds, ash. Fairly raw flavour with cigarette butts, coffee, and a lasting bitterness through the finish. I find this rather tonic on the palate.
