4.44/5 rDev +4.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Appearance; Nearly obsidian body, utterly impenetrable to light, surmounted by a massive, persistent and somewhat coarse tan head. Thick, patchy lacing adorns the glass walls..
Aroma: Massive roasted coffee dominates the aroma, very much like freshly ground beans. Bitter cocoa as well, and some fugitive alcohol notes. The 45 IBUs are perceptible, but seem scarcely more than an afterthought.
Taste: Opens with a surge of cold coffee and bitter cocoa. Beneath this, there is a strong roasted malt presence, and an undercurrent of sweet chocolate. Late in the taste, some charcoal flavors appear. The hops but in a late appearance, offering a weak response to the massive malt presence.
Mouth feel: Smooth, very soft and full, very pleasant.
Drinkability/notes: Really excellent, shows what greatness a porter can aspire to.
Presentation: Packaged in a stubby twelve-ounce brown glass bottle with a pry-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.
Serving type: bottle
