3.35/5 rDev -19.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.25
A - Poured from a 32 oz. growler into an oversized wine glass. The beer is black, I can't see any other brown hues sometimes identifiable in a porter. Brown head comes up slowly, and recedes quickly. There is a skim of head left on the beer, but it doesn't leave any lace.
S - Minimal. I smell basically the roasted malt that one would expect.
T - Underwhelming. As the beer warms up a bit a sweetness develops that I don't really expect. There is a bit of chocolate, and a bit of roasted malt, but the main flavor is the milk-stout like sweetness.
M - Maybe it's supposed to feel this way, but I don't like it. Very slick. Very little substance. The finish leaves a lingering burnt bitterness in my mouth.
O - I acknowledge that my ratings are far below the average, and I don't know why. I drank this growler four hours after it was filled at the brewery. I'm not a huge porter fan, but everything that I've had has been better than this.

Pours with a huge fluffy brown head and a clean black/deep brown body. There are faint hints of roast on the nose and a hint of bakers chocolate. The taste is almost like a beer float. Not in a vanilla or lactose way but just a rich creaminess. The body is fairly straightforward. The roast is not big and there are no "key" flavors. It's a big porter that tastes true to style with a bit of mouthfeel and creaminess added by the oats. Tasty beer that would be more appropriate in a 4 pack or 6 pack considering the 7.5% ABV.

Found the brewery, it's in the alley behind Row 34 off of Congress Street
Samples only served at the bar. Doing this from memory.
Dark brown, slight taupe cap.
Good aroma of rich malts
Smooth start, clean finish. Served very chilled
Good beer, best of the three samples on tap.
Worthy of a repeat visit to refill my growler
Serving type: on-tap
