First had: on tap at Frog Level

An oatmeal porter.

Dark brown pour with a lasting tan head. Standard aroma, dark roasty malts, and not much else. Similar taste, dark malts, fairly roasty, balancing out the sweetness, some toasted cereal grains, subtle earthy hop notes. Basic but solid. Medium body, dry, easily drinkable. Nothing out of the ordinary here, but it's still a good porter overall.

My second offering from Frog Level.Pours a deep dark chocolate brown with a bit of medium brownish hue when held to the light,a thinner beige head atop.Aromas of bitter chocolate and roast with a light char,standard but not bad.a little sharp in the mouth and light to medium bodied for the style.Flavors of bitter chocolate and earth and quite a bit of roast,there is some caramel and molasses-like sweetness that gets bigger as I drink more.Not bad but a pretty much par for the course porter.

Poured out of the Mini Growler bottle into a Founders snifter

A: Dark with no light filtering through; little to no head with some lacing

S: Some roasted chocolatey notes; malt

T: Chocolate, caramel, malts

M: thin bodied for a porter; lightly carbonated

O: Ok, not bad. Much better porters out there for sure. This was almost like a brown ale to me.

Beer was good not overly roasted or smokey. But plastic cups for a brew pub "COME ON MAN"
