3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask pour @ brewpub. Black with low carbonation. Smells and tastes like percolator-made American coffee or Starbucks grounds. Very acidic, like gas station coffee. Has too much of that damn acidic coffee and too little porter. Meh.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask special at the Taproom. Near black with no head. The aroma is like a cup of strong coffee in the morning. The taste is more balanced, still rather coffeeish, with a little bit of the porter showing through. Like they dumped some brewed coffee into the cask of beer.
