3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: The pour is a dark brown with some red highlights when looked at in the right night. The head is thin and tan in color.
S: The nose is mostly of roasted malts with a bit of dark chocolate. A decent enough caramel, malt sweetness to it as well. Maybe some toffee, too.
T: Lots of roasted malt flavor which is pretty much the controlling factor in the flavor of the beer. Decent caramel and toffee sweetness, chocolate, and a bitter roasted/burnt malt character. Sort of a high carbonation which gives off a definite CO2 acidity/flavor.
M: The body is medium with a pretty high carbonation for a porter.
D: Pretty decent beer. Easy to drink and a moderate ABV, like most of their beers, so you could probably knock back a couple glasses.

Draft. A dark brown beer with a red shine under a brown head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt. The flavor is sweet with an edge of acidity from the roasted malt, leading to a dry roasted finish.

Out of the cask. I found the aroma the most elegant, because it was not only butterscotchy but plain buttery, which is hard to pull off in a dark beer. The flavor wasn’t nearly as well done: even on cask, the body came off watery and underroasted.

This is bottled? Ok. Pours dark brown with a thin tan head. Roasty sweet aroma. The flavor has lots of roast backed by nice mocha sweetness. A nice porter.
