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

A: Very dark brown nearly black with a nice tan two finger head that leaves OK lacing.

S: Smell is mainly chocolate malts with a slight hint of some hops.

T: Chocolate malts dominate with a hint of some roastiness similar to goood coffee. You then notice some mint and herbal hop flavors.

M: Smooth and creamy with a slightly bitter long lasting finish.

D: This was an easy quaffer and is quite delicious from the handpump as well.

On tap at the brewpub on 8/29/08.

Pours a deep, dark brown (with some ruby highlights coming through) and a finger of creamy light tan head. Nice thin layer of retention that skims the top and bunches up around the edges that leaves some thick lacing down the sides of the glass. The aroma is light roasted malts, some caramel sweetness, and a touch of floral hops behind it.

The taste is chocolate and caramel sweetness with some underlying roasted malts and a tingling hop profile in the back end. The mouthfeel is light-medium bodied (although it does feel a bit light for the style) but does possess an overall prickly carbonation and sharp feel.

Not bad. I was looking for something a little deeper from this and the body seemed a touch light but for the most part, this was still a fairly flavorfull and easy drinking Porter. I'm glad to at least see at shot at this style on tap here.

Standard porter appearance, perhaps a little bit more brown than some of the current dark examples available. Good head retention, slightly better than average lacing.

Dark malt, caramel and chocolatey aroma. No hops are noticeable.

Smooth and creamy in the mouth with a medium body and moderate carbonation.

The flavor is soft with notes of cocoa, milk chocolate, and perhaps a bit of almost scorched caramel. Fairly typical, but also a bit more accessible due to it's moderate bitterness and more chocolatey / less roasty character. Minimal hop flavor as well.

Impressively drinkable. I had a mug club mug (20 oz?) and I could easily have enjoyed another if I wasn't driving. Worth trying.
