3.53/5  rDev -10.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bottled 1/2012.

Poured into a pint glass. Pours dark brown, almost black, whith a three-finger length tan head. Plenty of lacing is left on the side of the glass during consumption. There are aromas of dark roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, and some alcohol. The chocolate aroma is strong. The chocolate is pretty strong in the flavor like it is in the aroma. I get some of those dark roasted malts and coffee. I do taste some of the alcohol. There's a nutty quality to the taste as well. The body is medium and is on the lower end of carbonation, so it feels a lot fuller than a porter usually does. The finish is clean, so it is easy to drink. This is a good beer.

Slumbrew Porter Square Porter has a thin, beige head, a very dark, almost black, brown appearance, and slight lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of chocolate, milk, burnt malt, and a bit of acidic. Taste is of sugar, milk, chocolate, acidic bitterness, char, and dark-roasted malt. Mouthfeel is fairly heavy and velvety, and Slumbrew Porter Square Porter finishes semi-dry, easy drinking, and not at all alcohilic.

3.66/5  rDev -7.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

12 oz. bottle poured into a glass.

Appearance: Pours a dark brown with a thin white head that is gonna quickly. Very little lacing.

Aroma: Smells of coffee, chocolate, dark malt, and roastiness.

Taste: Taste follows the nose, with dark roasted coffee dominating. Also some nice bitter chocolate on the finish. Alcohol not noticeable. Minimal hop bite.

Mouthfeel: Nice and smooth with a good thickness.

Overall: Good Porter named after a good neighborhood. Tasty and somewhat desert-like with noticeable chocolate overtones. Wouldn't mind trying this on draft some time.
