3.03/5 rDev -21.3%
Serving type: bottle, poured into mug
A: Pours a hazy deep brown with ruby hues and a thick dark tan head with high retention and significant lacing.
S: Carmel aroma with faint notes of coffee.
T/M: Slight burnt bitter taste with sweet caramel notes as well. Some hints of bittersweet chocolate. Overall, more bitter than sweet. The carbonation is more pronounced than I had anticipated producing a mouthfeel that is less smooth and creamy than other porters I have had. However, its crisp sharp character is not unpleasant and contributes to a dry finish that invites another sip.
O: A very drinkable porter with a pleasant bitter taste. Would pair equally well with fish and chips or a juicy burger.

Pours a dark caramel brown, almost black. Leaves a big fluffy tan head, which reduces nicely. Leaves a bubbly film and nice lacing.
Smell is some chocolate, caramel, roast malts, a bit of burnt coffee. Maybe a hint of dark fruit. Very nice, if slightly oversweet.
Oh man, the taste is a huge disappointment after the nose. Bitter coffee, a slight tanginess, and that's about it. All the complexity in the nose is lost, leaving a fairly one-dimensional and disappointing experience.
Mouthfeel is a little watery, but carbonation is nice.
Well, this is a gorgeous porter with a great smell, and unfortunately the taste just doesn't live up. Disappointing.

A: Pours black with only a hint of brown when held up to the light. Head is massive on this one.
S: Subtle chocolate smell. A little roastyness. Smells a bit like rubber but that may be an artifact from work....
T: Super malty with chocolate notes. Leaves with a bit of stale bitterness. After a few sips the taste nearly disappears.
M: Goes down a little watery. Sits with a light creamy body.
Overall an ok beer. It tastes like a pretty average porter with the usual tastes. With no freshness date on the bottle I wonder if I didn't get an old bottle as the finish tasted quite stale. Oh well, this showing was pretty average.

Had a 6 oz taster at Dandelion market in Charlotte, an under-rated place not even listed yet on Beer Advocate...
Very dark, with a long lasting head. Nothing descriptive in the aroma. Flavor and mouthfeel are good...I love porters and stouts, but this is coming across a bit bitter for me...not sure why. Perhaps it is because I just finished a Birdsong Lazy Bird Brown Ale which I loved. Anyway, this is drinkable but not memorable.
