Dark brown body with no head. Aroma is light and faintly hoppy. Flavor is on the thin side, malty and sweet with little hoppiness. Finishes dry. Not bad.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Porter poured brown and after a minute lost its head. Very light aroma. There seems to be a hint of roasted malts. The mouth feel is a bit thin. The flavor is mostly burnt malts with a faint chocolate malt note. This beer could use a bit more depth to break it away from the standard one dimensional Porter flavor. I think the Baltic Porter has ruined me and now most standard Porters seem a bit lacking.

Poured a dark brown with a tannish head that remained as a thin crest. Nice coffee, roasted/burnt malt aroma. Flavor was slightly sweet, a hint of cocoa, with a predominant roast nut and coffee bitterness that lingers. A very flavorful porter with a smooth mouthfeel.

On tap at the brewpub. Nearly opaque dark brown pour...big thick tan head. Lotsa roasty malt, coffeish, some chocolate in the aroma. Flavor was equally roasty, medium bodied....creamy mouthfeel. Light bitterness in the finish. Not my favorite ale there, but a good one.
