for as much as i liked their stout, this one seemed generic and unimpressive to me on the whole, although based on scores here i think the masses disagree with me. this auburn tinted brown ale has a rusty slightly tannic hot sparge type finish to it. sometimes a product of an englsih ale yeast, sometimes a flaw, hard to tell which here. plenty of chocolate malt without a ton of roast or ashy bitterness, which is a pleasant quality for drinkability. nothing about it really stands out, save a little lingering caramel malt in the finish, but the body seems thin for a porter and the carbonation is minimal. where the simplicity of the stout was a success, its less fun in this brew. i can see it as a good early fall beer, but it wont stand up in cold weather when i like porters best. maybe im being too critical, spoiled by all the great beer at this place, but this one was forgettable in their lineup.
