Did a side by side with the Porter. For $1.25, this is a great brew to drink on those cold nights. For FL that means 70 degrees, but hay, that is cold here!

DATE TASTED: November 16, 2014... GLASSWARE: Samuel Smith pint... OCCASION: return from Ben and Teresa's wedding... APPEARANCE: jet black body; impressively thick, creamy brown head tabletops in the glass's center, while high-arching lace adorns the outer glass; good coverage overall ... AROMA: nicely hopped, slightly lactic; some smoky, murky qualities; some plasticine hints late impede the otherwise welcome scents ... PALATE: reasonably smooth, slightly oily; medium-bodied with a palatable late rush of effervescence on and under the tongue....TASTE: a much hoppier stout than its tradition encourages, with some dry hops lending punch to a rather brackish taste; sweet, roasted like coffee and even at the finish, encouraging another sip ... OVERALL: a flavorful West Coast take on the British style; these guys do not do much wrong, and this is another example why...
