Poured on tap at the Rochester Mills Brewery. Has a jet black color with a slight off-white head. Both the aroma and the flavor are all malts. The beer claims a hop finish, but I don’t detect that. Body feel is decent, a touch light. This is a pretty good porter.

A brewpub porter. Deep walnut under a sticky-ass mushroom cap. Subdued aromas of hazelnut coffee and ferns. Weak coffee makes its way onto the buds and unrolls into a memory of chocolate and oily hops. Body is thin, but facilitates the drain. Not bad, just plain.

on tap@ the brewpub, served in a pint glass. notes are from last new year's.

a - deep, dark brown with no head whatsoever. leaves a few small spots of lacing.

s - roast, chocolate, campfire.

t - roasted malt, chocolate notes, faint hint of mint, faint tree sap sort of bitterness. lacks depth.

m - heavier side of medium with lighter carbonation.

o - average in every way, goes down easy though. would order it again, but i'm in no hurry.

I just wanted one of these when I went to the brew pub. Porters aren't something I can drink too many of. It would be like chugging black coffee all night. But, anyway, coffee black appearance with a small tan head. Heavy aroma of roasted malt, some coffee, and a hint of chocolate. Taste refelected the same characteristics of the smell. But bitterness was in the taste. Not neccessarily bad bitterness, but bitterness. It was creamy and somewhat heavy, as a porter ought to be. I only had one... there are other beers here to try.
