Scuttlebutt "Porter"
Scuttlebutt Brewing Company - Everett, Washington USA
Porter (ABV 5.5%)

[Best served in a Nonic Pint glass]

Rating: 3.3/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 13/20

The pour was a very dark brown, almost black with an average sized (1-2 finger) light brown creamy head that was mostly lasting, but retreated finally to a thin foamy layer of residue producing some excellent sheets of lacing.

The aroma was of a dark roasted malt and an earthy leathery yeast with notes of milk chocolate, coffee, some dark fruit and a hint of ash.

The taste was mildly sweet and malty with notes of dark fruit and chocolate from the onset but got progressively mildly bitter with a good note of coffee and a touch of smoke at the end. The flavor lasted an average duration with the smoky coffee flavor left to linger on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was a solid medium in body and a bit watery yet still quite creamy in texture with a nice soft carbonation.

Overall a good and solid Porter with a light fruitiness and a nice mild smoke presence at the end.
