Part of flight post-tour. Super solid porter although somewhat forgettable. Usual porter notes- chocolate/ coffee, earthy (willamette) and super roasty. About right weight/ palate- medium bodied. Tasty.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ the Appellation Comely Bank tasting, thanks to allmyvinyl.
Appearance - itís dark brown rather than the expect black or brown/black. Nice head.
Nose - nuts and toffee, some light chocolate.Some roast for sure!
Taste - yep, more of the same. Iím struggling to see why this is called a Porter but itís tasty enough.
Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a decent finish.
Overall - this lies somewhere between a stout and a brown ale for me.

Good color, not as dark as a normal porter though. Good aroma and aftertaste.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light brown, neat tan cap. Smooth brassy nut. Sleek bitterness, soft roast and nutmeg spiced sweetness. Decent enough carbonation and fading bitterness. Clean and neat but lacking in any punch on the finish.
