look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

First had: on tap at American Flatbread, Burlington, VT

Typical fare here. Dark brown pour, semi-opaque, with a small, dense off-white head. Aroma was fairly roasty, dark malts, some sweetness, hints of coffee. The taste followed the aroma with dark roasty malts, coffee and dark chocolate notes, bready, and not too sweet, with a subtle earthy hoppiness. Medium body, solid and drinkable, nothing you haven't had before, but quite good overall.

Serving type: on-tap

On tap at the brewpub.

Pours a clear very dark red/crimson, a bit of black around the edges, medium sized tan head forms and settles down to a thin layer and ring, drops some lace chunks on the glass on its way down.

Smell is good, oats, lightly roasty, some chocolate, very biscuity and malty, a touch of fruity sweetness, caramel, wafery, pretty neat.

Taste is similar, very dry and roasty, sweet and nutty, light chocolate, caramel, light fruit, biscuit, very dry and roasty finish, a bit of oats.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation, a pretty solid porter.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

sampled on tap at the brewpub may 31/2010. menu listed it at 5.3% ABV.

pours deep dark brown with good clarity. not quite opaque and showing some deep red highlights at the bottom. the small dense tan head drops fairly fast and leaves lots of lace as it falls.

aroma is nice. dark and milk chocolate. coffee. earthy and woody. nice herbal character. hint of alcohol. multi-grain bread. bit of biscuit. a bit fruity too, leaning clearly toward a dry english style porter.

taste is good. coffee. dark toasted whole wheat bread. bit of biscuit. light alcohol. bit of dark and milk chocolate. a bit fruity again. nice earthy and slightly herbal character. medium-low bitterness level.

mouthfeel is great. medium body. medium carbonation level.

drinkability is good. balanced and tasty. this is one i could easily drink all evening.

Off the tap at one of my favorite joints ever this one was an opaque, wood-stain brown color with a thin tan head. The retention was decent, the lacing good. The aroma was of rich roasted malt, coffee and light chocolate. The flavors were good too and similar, but not quite as sweet as it smelled. Dark roasted coffee, roasted and blackened malt, smoky notes and a touch of toffee. The mouthfeel was smooth but a little watery, the body medium/full and the carbonation soft. A decent porter but it struck me as a little misbalanced and lacking gumption.

On-tap at American Flatbread, poured into a pint glass.

A- Mixture of dark brown and black hues. Nice one inch of tan head was produced.

S- Nice smell of roasted coffee beans and malt.

T- Well balanced. Wasn't nearly as bitter as the roasted coffee bean aroma suggested. Also had nice malt backbone that gave it a great finish.

M- Medium bodied with a little carbonation.

D- Highly drinkable. If it weren't for the huge selection of beers, I would have drank this all day.

Overall, this is a high quality porter. As I stated above, it is very well balanced allowing it to be enjoyed quite thoroughly.
