3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very dark brown color with a finger of tan head. Smells strongly of coffee, especially like espresso and coffee grounds. A bit of roast, maybe some toffee sweetness. The flavor is also rather intense on the coffee, but I suppose that’s the point. Lots of roasted coffee notes, a bit of coffee grounds, perhaps some roasted malt and dark chocolate, too. Medium bodied with low to medium carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Haven Gastropub in Pasadena. Black with red highlights. Excellent sheety lacing of latte foam. Nose is rich dark chocolate coffee and roasted bean. Taste is dry and dusty, quite acidic though. Herbal bitter finish. Solid coffee porter, not gritty. Just a bit too much acid extraction from the coffee.
