3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear dark brown body with a small fizzy beige head. The nose is roasty, burnt caramel, some dark cocoa, minimal hops. The aroma is a bit overly roasty for a Porter, smells much more like a stout. The flavor is a bit burnt and roasted, not much chocolate or cocoa. Some light hops on the back end. Lighter bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Meh.

Pretty roasted malty full bodied Porter. Overall nice but a bit bitter finish for a porter. Hoppy dry finish. Not bad.

Draft and Cask (with cocoa nibs) at the brewery. Brown color with a tan head on draft and no head on cask. Strong coffee aroma on both, but the cocoa mellows the coffee for sure on the cask. Both are coffee and roast forward. Cask is a bit sweeter with less of a bitterness overall. Very smooth in both presentations. Enjoyed both. Rating is a compilation.
