3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft in a taster at the brewery. Pours a deep brown with an off-white head. Notes of chocolate, nuts, maple, earthy hops, and an unexpectedly high amount of dark fruits. Very light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet mouthfeel that finishes dry. A little thin, but not a bad porter.

on tap @ Wedge Brewing --- Clear, very dark amber with a good head cover, drooping swirls of lace. Taste is roasted malt with biscuit and earthy overtones. Sweet malt grows and pushes through to a lightly bittered finish. Easy to drink, satisfying, worth a look.
