Good standard porter, black with white head which dissipates gradually leaving decent lacing. Coffee and chocolate aromas. One to try if porters are your bag.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A decent but boring porter. Pours a nice inky black. Not much of any smell. Some chocolate and nuts in the taste, but a basic porter. Had on tap at the brewery.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap: near black with red tint and a medium-sized almost white head. Aroma is smokey roast grain, coffee, and a slightly stale malt note. Flavor is mild bitter with lots of coffee, roast grains, a light charcoal, a nutty stale earthy note, and a light molasses sweetness running around the background. Palate is light bitter and soft sweetness with a chalky gritty feel running a bit thin. Decent flavor, not my favorite porter or beer here.
