3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz Bottle. The pour was a murky dark brown with an average (1-2 finger) light brown frothy head that receded down to a medium film and large collar thus creating good runny lacing.
The aroma was on the mild side with a roasted dark bread malt, light resin hops and a sweaty yeast along with notes of milk chocolate and coffee.
The taste was lightly roasty and somewhat sweet with a touch of chocolate from the onset, progressing with a light bitterness and a nice note of coffee towards the finish. The flavor lasted an average time proceeding the swallow with a slight bitter roastiness left behind.
Mouthfeel was a few shades below medium in body with a thin watery texture and a soft carbonation.
Overall I found this brew to be rather thin for a Porter, although it was quite flavorful and very easy going down...

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shared 12 oz. bottle poured to rocks glasses, showing a black/brown hue, with a modest layer of brownish tan foam, and light, wavy lacing. The nose was roasted, with some char & smoke dryness. Medium bodied, with average carbonation, the taste presented a barley-like graininess, moderate, earthy & woody bitterness, more noticeable cocoa notes upon warming, and a hint of brine, reminiscent of an oyster Stout. A fairly tasty & robust Porter.

I like it but not blown away. Decent taste of chocolate and coffee in the roasted malts and a faint smooth freshness from the hops. Not a bad porter.
