3.7/5  rDev -4.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

QT sized bottle...

A: A deep dark brown with red highlights around the edges. An aggressive pour yields a huge 2+ inch tan colored head that fades at a decent pace. Very good.

S: I get some roastiness immediately upfront quickly followed by a smoked malt scent. Mild coffee and vanilla hidden on the back. Decent.

T: A heavy roasty smoke upfront with a strong vanilla quickly following. It opens up at the end to a lingering mild coffee roast with hints of chocolate. Seems like a good deal of smoked and roasted malts were used in here. Decent.

M: Medium body with a good carbonation. A creamy finish. Good.

O: All in all, this is a good beer. I've used smoked malt in brews before , but never to this degree. Surprisingly, it blends well with the roastiness to create a smoked beer that does not taste like smoked meat. Good to try if you like smoked porters.

3.88/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Served in a shaker pint, beer is dark brown to black, hazy with a thin off white head of small bubbles, some lacing but low carbonation.

Aroma is mostly yeasty, nice Belgian yeast bouquet, I like the aroma.

The beer is thinner than expected but still good, mildly sweet on the leadoff, nice body throughout and a good finish overall. The beer is not dry, mildly bitter, a little roast on the back end. I enjoyed it, I think the taste was the best part about it and that's what you are shooting for. I'd have it again.

4/5  rDev +3.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4

A- Looks like your standard porter with no clarity and a black body topped with an off white thin layer of head. Great lacing throughout and that thin layer of head remains.

S- Nothing overly strong here, just light hints of coffee and a bit of alcohol which is surprising with the ABV listed, still feels like a pretty average porter.

T- The beer shines when it finally reaches the mouth. Strong tastes of roasted barley coffee like flavor is well balanced with a light bitter roastiness and a subtle but perceivable and highly enjoyable fruitiness on the back end. Not the best porter I have had but certainly quite good.

M- Super creamy and lush but not so chewy as to be a stout. This one really hit the style dead on and exceeded my expectation in this category, would not change a thing.

D- This was a good beer, while not the best I have had, and probably not the best I've even tasted from Franklin's, it was quite enjoyable and I would gladly ask for another.
