On tap at American Flatbread. Aroma has chocolate and roasted malts. Black color with light tan head. Slightly sweet with light bitterness. Lots of hints of chocolate. Medium body. Overall, I don’t drink a lot of porters, but this tasted very good for the style. Not too bitter, not too sweet, and not too much of anything. Very well balanced. Could easily taste the hints of chocolate and coffee, paired well with our desert selection.

2013-04-28.V dark brown black body, small foamy tan head. Aroma of tangy fruit, almost blackberry like, modest roast. Flavour is pretty dry up front, roasty malt, sort of tangy fruit character follows. Average bodied palate, decent carbonation feels light for a porter. Decent.

On tap at the Burlington location. I was surprised to see the low rating here...I thought this was pretty good, albeit simple. Smooth, silky, tastes of chocolate. Easy to drink and not too heavy.
