@ Mills Tavern, Providence RI

Served in a Foolproof snifter. Dark brown to black in a very dark dining room for extra darkness. Big, splashy head throws lace all over the glass. Good lookin' stuff.

Heavy char aroma. A little dark fruit like fig or cassis pops up here and there.

Complex and extremely flavorful. Cassis up front with a heavy char in back. There's some hop bitterness which really shoves the char on your tongue. I like that. Maybe some dark baker's chocolate. Maybe?

I was going to give up on Foolproof after their ho hum IPA. This is much, much better. Between Mayflower Porter, HF Everett, Smuttynose Robust porter, OC Stovepipe and Raincloud I think porter is one of the styles New England does best.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: Appears black in the glass. Fully opaque - don't see any light coming through on this one. Forms a rather large dark beige colored head. Excellent retention and lots of lacing.

S: Aroma is dark malts, burnt malts, coffee, carbonation, and a slight hint of pine.

T: Starts off with dark, chalky, dry malts. A bit of burnt malt in the mix with that burnt malt bitterness. Dark chocolate and cocoa.

M: Body is on the heavier side of medium. Moderate carbonation. Mild bitterness. Chalky.

O: A decent porter. Nothing spectacular, but not a bad drinker either.

Serving type: can
