2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Serving: from tap at Sound Brewery Tasting Room.
Aroma: light, coffee aroma.
Appearance: small, light brown, initial head that quickly disappeared. No lacing. Clear, flat, reddish brown body.
Taste: lightly acidic initial flavor and finish. Long duration.
Palate: medium body, dry texture, lively carbonation.
Overall: seemed too acidic and fizzy for a porter, but I’d try it again since the other beers were so good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours black as night with a micro head that stayed cloudy to the bottom, great lacing. The taste is roasted coffee, sweet chocolate and some citrus bitterness. A little thin and not as smooth and creamy as I’d like. I think this is a bit Baltic.

Pours an almost completely opaque black with a thick beige head. Tons of lacing blotches. The aroma is rich and roasty with light caramel and vanilla notes. A bit sweet with chocolate notes and light toasted notes. The finish has mild mannered hops with a bit of citrus bitterness and floral notes. A nice robust porter

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml bomber pours a deep black color with a finger and a half of light brown head that leaves some decent lacing on the side of the glass. Aroma is chocolate and roasted grains with some dark fruits. Taste is a roasted grain and hop bitterness balanced nicely with a chocolate and dark fruit sweetness. Medium bodied with decent carbonation that satisfies the palate. A very satisfactory porter which is sure to please most beer lovers taste buds.

Red brown pour slight tan head. Aroma of soil, lactic acid, cream, horse grain, coffee. Tastes really grainy wheat toasted acid. Watery palate. Could use more body. Seems like a authentic light bodied vintage porter.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Really enjoying this one, and am surprised by the low ratings. Almost "stout lite." Strong mocha notes in the base stouts. Carries through . . . . forever. Just good, and recommended.

Nice dark brown with a sheet of light cocoa powder foam. Smells of sweet malts and some nutty character. Some toast and Graham on the nose. Flavor is sweet cocoa, leather, some rye bread a bit of coffee and some pleasant soil hints.medium on full bodied with a good soft carb and some dryness on a mostly watering finish. I really fund the mouth feel here outstanding.
