3.98/5 rDev -6.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
A - Pours with a nearly pitch black body...the only other color, burgundy, appears around the edges when held to the light...a bubbly, yet creamy, tan head forms and stands two fingers tall...nice retention leads to great lacing
S - Huge roasted malt presence...it takes it to the edge of being burnt/charred...dark chocolate, fresh brewed coffee...vanilla and caramel to sweeten things up
T - Everything that was displayed in the nose comes together for big flavors...the roasted aspect is present throughout the entire beer...it does take a turn towards the end of the glass as it wears down your palate and becomes burnt...the chocolate and coffee are dark and pair well with each other...the vanilla and caramel come in to provide some sweetness as the roasted and dark flavors start to overpower everything...there is a punch of hops towards the finish...paired with the roastiness, they both provide a long lasting bitterness
M - Medium bodied...not quite full, roasty, bitter...wears down the palate
O - This was a well done robust porter...it kind of reminded me as a Breakfast Stout Light...bold flavors, but my only complaint was the degree of roasted malts
