Draft sample. Poured a dark brown color with an average frothy light brown head that was mostly lasting and excellent lacing. Moderate toasted sweet malt aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium toasted chocolate sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2oz taster on tap, at HopCat Broad Ripple. Mostly clear red brown color. Thin tan head. Leaves good, thicker ridges of lace. Great coffee up front. A hint of the caramel, some dark chocolate, toasty malts. Moderate bitter, light sweet, more dry taste. Medium body. Smooth, lightly soft kind of crisp lighter carbonation and dry texture towards the end. Really nice coffee porter. The coffee and caramel work great together.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Scotty’s Brewhouse, served in a pint glass. Pours a dark brown color that’s surprisingly clear, and lighter at the bottom where the glass narrows. Small off-white head. Notes of chocolate, toast, dark fruits, earth, mellow roast, and leaves. Light-bodied, with minimal carbonation and an earthy, watery mouthfeel. Just a little light and undercarbonated. Otherwise, a straightforward porter.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft to taster. Looks good; cola with foamy beige head. Smells solid; malty and nutty. Tastes like it smells, but less balanced and pleasant, with a slightly off-putting mouthfeel. Meh.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Flight draft on tap at the brewpub (Indianapolis, IN). Pours a richer blackish pour, firm haze, and brownish glowing bottom and edges. Not opaque, but the beer is dark with a frothy chocolate milk hued head atop that dies to a thicker ring, laces pretty well. Aromas are touches of dark fruit, plum and raisin, black cherries meet roasty malts, cocoa. Gentle toffee, coffee, and biscuits. Good aromas, dark fruit slanted with more cocoa. Initial is medium bodied, a touch nutty up front with cocoa, biscuits, a touch of sticky molasses. Some brown malts, smooth and inviting with just a subtle dark fruit presence (much more subtle than the nose let on). Cocoa, dark chocolate, and some smoothed over biscuits, toffee. A bit thinner than I expected from a richer nose. Touches of caramel, biscuits, gentle roast, and dryness linger into the backend and finish. Leaves a mellow sweetness, darker malts, a bit underwhelming in that department. A solid Porter even though it really tapers out to a forgettable finish. Not bad.

Draught at brewpub. Chocolate and roasty flavor as expected. Not a heavy body for a porter. Slightly burnt taste. Nice.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Scotty?s Brewhouse in Fort Wayne, IN. This brew poured a very small quickly diminishing light brown colored head and fine to medium sized bubbles. The aroma was mild with malty mildly roasted brown malts. The palate was crisp and tingly from start to finish. The flavor was crisp with strong roasted brown malt and a mild hop backing. A decent brew worth having again.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
tap at the brewpub - Pours very dark brown with an off-white head. It smells of roasted malt and chocolate. The flavor is sweet with dark roast malt and a little chocolate. There’s some bitterness in the finish, but it’s mild. This porter is medium bodied and lightly carbonated. I found it a little bland but otherwise fairly good.
