3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Copper/brown, clear, forever persisting head.
Medium body and flavor, bright, lean and beautifully balanced mouthfeel, more heat than one would expect for the abv, long but slightly weaker aftertaste.
Mildly bittersweet, appropriate acidity.
Roasty flavors, coffee.
Good example of the style.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Dark brown, ruby highlights at the edges, almost black in the center with a light-tan colored head; minimal lacing, moderate retention. Nose is full of roasted malts, charred barley, toasted nuts, wood chips, burnt toast, a small hint of coffee beans. Flavor is quite rich & has even larger notes of dry coffee & bittersweet cocoa dust. Underscores of roasted malt, mild char, & a hint of licorice with a small bit of acrid acidity towards the finish. Very mild hint of floral notes. Thin-medium bodied. A solid porter; no world-beater but pretty good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Dark brown/mahogany body, lighter than average. Aroma has soft roast and a bit of old milk chocolate. Creamy, but a bit light mouthfeel. Medium soft roasty taste with soft cocoa and cream. Smooth finish. Good balance and very drinkable but I prefer my porters to be darker and more robust. This would make a good session porter because it doesn’t wear out one’s palate too fast and it looks like it is one of the more widely available porters (at least in the US).
