3.81/5  rDev -10.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance - mahogany body with mocha colored head

Smell - roasted malts, molasses, dark chocolate, roasted coffee

Taste - dark chocolate, molasses, roasted malts, coffee bean

Mouthfeel - lighter end of medium bodied, high carbonation, roasty upfront, hop bitterness in the back, not as balanced as other porters

Overall - decent porter, I think I would have liked this more had this not been so highly hopped as this isn't a style that calls for such treatment. At the price point, hard to justify going back to this one as there are better, less expensive representations of the style

Price Point - $10.99/6pk 12 oz bottles

Serving type: bottle
