3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours black, slightly translucent against light with a little tan head. Malty aroma, not too strong, some oats as well. Taste starts very easy, then ends with a bitter finish with a lingering aftertaste. Tastes pretty much like what you’d expect from your typical porter. Mouthfeel is somewhat light but still smooth and creamy with easy carbonation. Decent porter but there are plenty of better ones out there.
