Dark brown with hints of red, and a solid beige head. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee and burnt toast, real thin on the hops. The flavor is bitter then malty, sweet toffee and roasted. The finish is okay quick and thin. Overall, not a bad robust porter, a good example of the style, but not overly exciting (i’ll order the IPA next time). jtw (1170) - farmington, Michigan, USA - OCT 13, 2004
draft at the brewpub. interesting roasty, lightly hoppy aroma. if it weren’t a porter, i would guess it was cascade hops in there. lots of whitish head, lots of roastiness in the body, with a good mouthfeel but it’s a tiny bit thin on the finish. lasting malty aftertaste. good straightforward porter.
