3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle poured into a shaker style pint glass. Aroma is caramel and roasted malt, slight raisin, and faint smoke. Maybe a little nutty. Pours with a few soda-like bubbles and retains no foam or lacing. Taste is malty caramel with a dry roasted malt finish and hints of raisins and smoke. Decently long finish for a beer of moderately low strength. Palate is well balanced - between the medium low carbonation and roasty dryness and the caramel/raisin sweetness. The smoke is still present but not in sufficient quantity to add or detract from this beer. Overall very tasty for a porter of this strength but not something I would go out of my way to try again.
