4.26/5 rDev +0.2%
A - Nice black pour with one finger of light brown head. Decent carbonation. Frilm retention and spotty lace.
S - Nice aroma right away. Chocolate and roast interplay well. Nice dark malt. Not too roasty but more smooth and, i hate to use this term, luscious.
T - Chocolate, mild roast that falls off in the finish. Again a really nice sweetness with chocolate and roast playing together properly. No artificial cola sweetness present. Quite good.
M - Very smooth, mild carbnoation, medium body. Not too bitter.
O/D - Very solid porter. Tasty and easy to drink with a good combo of properly nailed down flavours. Quite enjoyable.

poured into the bottle into a Turbinator.
A: Black. Brooding. some carbonation. Leads to 1.5 finger head down to a 1-2 mm disk. Nice lacing.
S: some bacon, smoky notes. Choco-malt. Smoked mild fish. Phenolics. This is definitely a smoky porter end of beer. This is definitely not Class of 88 deschutes/GLBC levels of smoked putridness. Subtle levels.
T: Bacon, smoked fish and the nose exactly and has that bitter smoked meat and porter character. Smooth. It's definitely on the verge of Rauchbier but smoother.
M: Creamy as all hell. Not as dry as I would expect, some creaminess offsets it. puckery smoke at ultimate finish. Out-breath is rough smoke and bitter campfire. It's robust!
O: I like milder porters but this brings the bacon so to speak. This stuff is definitely interesting and certainly world class.

Apperance: Dark beer with a light brown head.
Aroma: Rich toasted barely and coffee smell with molasses.
Flavor: Rich smooth coffee and molasses first layer, accented with a complex blend of spices. This brew is hoppy thought out. It is a bold full bodied beer, with good carbonation.
Overall: This is a good Porter with its complex blend of spices. With an IBU of 45, the hoppiness of this Porter is quite pounced. This beer is more full bodied than most Porters.
