3.48/5  rDev -6.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A - Dark brown pour with a beige foram that retains well. Slight bubbly carbonation. Lacing rolls down the glass.

S - Smells of burnt malt and roasted coffee beans. Slight milk chocolate smell.Has some clear bitter notes.

T - Flavors of bitter coffee and roasted malt. I think this one would be better with some age on it. For me it was too heavy on the malt. As it warmed it mellowed a bit better.

M - Balance on this could stand to be adjusted a bit.

O - I prefer a bit more sweet notes in a porter. This seemed to be a tad too bitter for my liking.

S-Roasted malt, good deal of coffee, some oak notes as well.

T-Nice toasted/roasted malt, tad burnt as well. Coffee and chocolate round it out.

M-Medium bodied, good deal of carbonation, smooth.

O-The best beer they had on tap when I went to the brewery, would easily have it again.
