TheAlum (7041) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - NOV 10, 2016
Draft pour on tap at the brewery (Capitola, CA). Pours a darker deep brownish hue, a firmer dark middle shows a touch of light on the edges. Frothy big tarnish head is cakey, large, robust. A nice potent lacing throughout. Aromas are chocolatey, some caramel, cocoa, biscuits, toast. A bit dry, earthy, Tootsie Roll jabs. Initial is medium bodied, a bit of girth with some sweetness, darker depth, toasty and cocoa dusting. A bit bitter, semi sweet and roasty as you turn the corner quite quickly. Carmelized, toasty, dry, bitter and lingering. Enough body to remind you its a Porter with a firmly dry, bitter, roasty backend. Cacao, coffee, toasty biscuits, earth. Pretty pour, by the book nose, good flavors, and especially pleasant backend and finish.
