On tap at King's Table

Dark brown with ruby highlights. Long lasting thin head and good lace, too.

The aromatics include roasted coffee, chocolate, and plum acidity. The feel is great: smooth, rolling carbonation draped over a silky body. The taste has subtle roast that blends well with the plum.

It's a mild mix overall - not bad for what it is.

Serving type: on-tap

Kentucky

3.99/5  rDev +8.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a nearly opaque black with subtle garnet highlights and a clinging tan head.

S: Mild aromas of coffee, vanilla bean, sweet cream, dark chocolate, roasted grain, caramel, raisins, ripe plums, and earthy, lemony hops are present on the nose.

T: Notes of caramel, coffee, roasted grain, vanilla bean, sweet cream, dark chocolate, plums, figs, raisins, Medjool dates, black currants, lemon, herbs, and leather fill the mouth. The finish is smooth and mellow with plenty of dark fruit, caramel, and lemony, herbal hop notes.

M: Medium-to-full in body, silky, and smooth. Carbonation is active and prickly on entry, but soon mellows and fades. Alcohol is so restrained as to be virtually undetectable. A little fuller in body than many American porters, but still easy to drink.

O: An impressive porter. The addition of plums works really well with the citrusy, herbal hop and chocolaty roasted grain notes. Recommended for fans of darker, more robust ales.

Serving type: bottle
