4.21/5 rDev +4.5%
A: fully opaque black in color. Served with a minimal tan colored head. Little retention. No lacing.
S: Very nice aroma. Dark malts, dark fruit, chocolate and vanilla. A hint of smoke compliments nicely.
T: dark malts, baker's chocolate, plum. Neither sweet nor dry. A touch of cocoa. Char and again just a bit of smoke.
M: full bodied. Mild bitterness. Slightly chalky. Lower carbonation.
O: an unexpectedly good porter. Just enough smoke to make this interesting, but not enough to be overpowering or dominant.

Pours pitch black with cocoa head, nice lace and some retention. Smell features mellow smoke intertwined with roast and cacao. Taste is deep, dry and roasty with emphasis on smoke and chocolate. No hop character to speak of. Smoke is well integrated and works well with the base. Mouthfeel is sturdy and is well carbonated. Overall a well balanced smoked brew with no evidence of the listed abv.

A - extremely dark brown to the the point of simply being black...where one color ends, the other begins
S - hint of vanilla, coco, wisps of smoke, malts
T - follows the nose like a good beer should. The palate enjoys it more as it warms up and opens up.
M - beer + mouth = :) just a generally good drink here.
If in the area, a for sure porter to snag.

Piece Brewery Big Black Mariah - Porter served on tap.
Appearance: Small head with good lacing. Dark reddish-brown in color.
Smell and Taste: Lots of smokey malts and cocoa. Thick, but also slightly smooth with some hops flavor. This one proved to be a fairly decent porter.

I had this on tap into a tasting glass at Piece. The beer is a very dark black, hardly any brown highlights. Light tan ok retention. The aroma is super sweet a hint of vanilla and chocolate with a big smokey finish. They say only light smoke but not the case at all. The taste is all about the smoke its everywhere and dominating and only shows anything else on the finish where you get a little sweetness. Light black licorice as well. This is ok, nothing special but if you want a little smoke while your out not a terrible choice. However, they have schlenkerla there so I'd go with that.
