Sample at the brewpub. Brownish-black pour with a medium tan head that dissipates slowly. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and hops. Light-bodied with a roasty character and flavors of chocolate malt, coffee and hops. The finish is sweet with a malty aftertaste. Decent overall.

Legitimate Porter flavor. I have a feeling this brewery will be producing many great beers in the future.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing.
Body is dark brown to black.
Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (chocolate, caramel, roasted grain), with a note of vanilla.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
A simple, plain rendition, but no flaws. Not enough balance for the sweetness.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark brown ale. Off white head lasts an hour plus. Sharp roasty nose. Sharper roasty flavor with a mellow middle amd milky finish. Not my rav. Want porters to be smoother, less roast and more cocoa.

Tap at Silver Moon. Someone needs a graphic designer. Pours a deep brown with healthy foam. Nose is coffee, savory, hazelnut. Taste has a harsh coffee bite, soap, chemical, hydrogen peroxide. Papery palate. Huh.
