3.53/5  rDev -8.1%

Not a bad porter but nothing outstanding. Pours a dense dark color with no light coming through. Medium size tan head. Better than average retention and some light lacing on the glass.

Fairly mild aroma and taste. The aroma is roasted malts. Taste includes roasted malts some coffee and maybe a bit of chocolate. Not a stand up and take notice kind of porter.

Mouthfeel was rich enough as the beer warmed, seemed a little thin at first. Overall an enjoyable but not great porter. I would drink it again but not seek it out.

Poured a fully black hue with a one finger foamy off white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured roasted barley, dry coffee and a touch of smoke.

The taste consisted of a dry roasted malt with the typical coffee and charcoal elements.

The mouthfeel was toward the drier side of the style.

Overall tasty and super quaffable classic porter.

I had a couple of sixteen ounce drafts of this at the Amsterdam Ale House on Manhattan's Upper West Side. Not a bad porter. I wish there had been a little more information on it at the time.

Poured a very dark brown with a lighter brown head. Nice carbonation. Very hard to see through.

Aroma was a little faint but roasty.

Taste was a little light (I suspect this beer is pretty low abv) but pretty much what you'd expect from a porter. Roastiness, balance.

Not a bad beer. I guess the name is when the beer was made or released.

On-tap 12/17/2011 at Track 84, in Warwick, RI served in a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a dark reddish brown color with a short dense off-white head that fades very slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is faint but contains roasted malts, coffee, dark fruit and a faint touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out with a strong black coffee flavor followed by some smokiness and background flavors of dark fruit and chocolate. There is a mild but complementary hops presence that provides a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is dry but slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, this is a solid porter to drink for a while.

Tap at Armsby Abbey.

Creamy 1 finger head fades very slowly with lots of lacing, dark coke brown color hints of light.

Nose has nice dark malts, caramel, hint of roast, nice bakers choc, powdered cocoa, lots of vanilla, touch of sweet malts.

Taste starts with creamy porter, bit of roast, choc powdered cocoa and bit of bakers, slightly milky and creamy, bit of coffee slight earthy bitterness from the roasted malts, chalky chocolate and coffee. Finish is bitter, lots of dark roasty malts lingering, cocoa, slight creamy.

Mouth is creamy, med to a bit heavier bodied, decent carb.

Overall nice, good malts, lots of choc, bit of roast, bit of bitterness, coffee, nice balance, smooth and drinkable.

From notes taken at the Armsby Abbey on 10/26/11.

A - Poured into a pint glass "black as the void of space" as one of bpk59's brothers oh so elequently put it. There was a mocha two finger head that faded to leave nice side lacing.

S - Very nice roast malts resulting in good coffe and chocolate. Good vanilla too.

T - Pow, this is the nose in my mouth. Roasted malts, light carmel but this is so full of coffee and chocolate. Stuff is really good with awesome vanilla notes too.

M - Very creamy and smooth with nice carbonation.

O - This was a very, very nice porter. Excellent flavor and appearance. Would definately drink this again.

Poured a black body w/ quicky dieing one finger off white head over a sturdy smoked/roasted malt aroma. Good beer, caught me offguard b/c described as a sweet, mild porter and yet the sweetness, which there is touches of dark chocolate I think, is minimalized and it's more of a hearty but not too thick stout - roasted malts give it a dryness but it passes over easy thanks to a good use of barley and possibly oats; a solid beer but a bit simplistic and not a sweet porter (lest someone tell you that).

on tap at khyber in philly

Pours a filmy blackness with some patchy lacing all over the glass. Layers of film stretch across the glass with some filminess on the beer.

Roasted malts and coffee beans in the nose with some hints of dark chocolate. Faint hop presence with sweetness. Nutty and caramel.

Slight bitterness up front, followed by a wave of dark flavor. Dark chocolate bark with coffee beans swirl together for a unique sweetness. Roasted malts with slight warmth and bready tones. Faint alcohol in the finish with some residual chocolate touches.

Fuller body, decent carbonation, sticky and chewy on the tongue. Drinks pretty nicely, solid balance of chocolate and coffee, definitely something I'd have again.

Growler from Pinnochio's Pizza in Media, PA...

Decanted into tumbler pint glass...

A - Cloudy dark brown color...not as dark black/brown opaque as most porters. A nice 1 inch head from the 1st growler pour. Slight lacing...very respectable...

S - I'm not getting much in the way of aromas unfortunately...very subtle dark roasted malts...maybe a slight cocoa and very very slight coffee note...

T - More bitterness than I would expect from a porter...kind of throws things off for me...not much of the malt flavors break through the malt...this could maybe pass as a really dark bitter chocolate...but its got a really grass raw flavor that I'm not pleaseed with...

M - Very light for a porter...kind of watery...doesn't help the lack of flavor...maybe a slight oily feel...carbonation pretty standard...

Overall - I'm a bit underwhelmed with this Sixpoint offering as I am a pretty big fan of their Sweet Action, Bengali Tiger, and Righteous Ale...I'm not sure I would revisit this porter when there are so many great ones out there.

Try it for yourself and you decide. Maybe I'm not tasting/smelling right today. I will update this review if I change my mind before the growler is finished tomorrow.

Cheers!
