3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From notes. 07/26. 22 oz bottle shared by Spencer. The pour is a dark dark brown or light black with a huge light tan head that prevented full pours for three different attempts. There is huge lacing left all over. The aroma is big on light chocolate and good roasted malt. There is a little lactose in there, but for a porter, it's pretty good. The flavor starts off not very good. Way too much carbonation. There is a lot of bitter cocoa and roasted malt. There is a strange metallic aspect to a light fruit that I'm not too fond of. It's still not bad. The mouth feel isn't really good. There is a ton of carbonation and it's really thin and light. The aftertaste is lingeringly chocolatey with a little roast.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle split @ CBC Clerko. Deep brown pour with a modest tan head. Fresh baked glazed donuts and pain au chocolate. Plenty of toasted grain. Assertive earthy coffee, burnt marshmallow and brown sugar. The taste is nicely balanced, not overly sweet or bitter. Chocolate donuts offset by robust coffee and hop bitterness. General charred grain. Smooth and easy to drink. Oily. Nicely executed.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Heavy dark chocolate and mild coffee for the malt, light herbs and earth for the hops and yeast. Head is small, wispy, off-white with a spot or two of lacing, and is mostly diminishing. Color is dark brown with a red tint. Flavor starts lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, slick with a lively carbonation. Nothing outrageous in this Porter, but everything is in the right place for the style.
