3.78/5 rDev -11.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
A - Pours a dark, dark brown, almost black but not quite. Beautiful, long-lasting reddish mocha head that recedes to a collar with little lacing, although some legs.
S - Nice and very roasty, with a bit of chocolate. A hint of something like licorice that I just can't figure out.
T - A damn fine porter. Roasted malts dominate, with some subtle notes of chocolate and even a dash of hops. Definitely very malt forward.
M - Very smooth and creamy, nice carbonation lightens it up perfectly.
D - Great porter, but I've been spoiled by many others. As a regular offering its wonderful, and would pick up more often if a) it were regularly available in NYC and b) I was a fan of porters.

3.96/5 rDev -6.8%

A - Just about jet black. Poured looking like oil or syrup. Thin, non-persistent dark tan head and quickly fading lace
S - Sweet and roasted nut. Maybe some spice somewhere in there. Some coffee notes as well.
T - Pretty good. Taste like a good dark chocolate mixed with roasted...something. I don't want to say roasted nut again but pretty much. Starts off as a burst of dark chocolate and finishes nice and bitter. Burnt dark chocolate is the best way I can describe it.
M - Not much to say. Medium bodied, average carbonation. Pretty drinkable.
O - Overall this is a good porter. A tad bit too bitter for my liking, but still real good.

Pours black with a nice mocha head. Aroma is a touch smokey, extremely roasty giving offf some nice chocolate and coffee tones. Flavor is a touch smokey as well, wonderfully roasty with some great dark chocolate and coffee and a touch of char, and a nice intrusion of some bitterness from some hops in the finish. A creamy, medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, an absolutely fantastic porter here. Just as good, just different, from my favorite porter, Odell's Cutthroat Porter. Loved it, will absolutely be drinking lots more of this one.
