3.89/5  rDev +2.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass at around 45 degrees Fahrenheit

Appearance: Dark brown with a red hue when put up to the light. A frothy two finger tan head

Smell: Roasted malts, chocolate, caramel

Taste: Sweet chocolate is dominate with undertones of roasted malts. Also a little smokey. Not very complex, but still above average for a porter. The aftertaste almost tastes like stale coffee to me which sort of put me off

Mouthfeel: Lacking in body; Light and goes down almost too easy

Overall: Porters are one of my favorite styles, but its hard for me to find one that i truly love. I usually stick with my top 3 (Eddy Fitz, Founders, Smuttynose), and Old Leghumper gives me justice as to why. Not enough balance between roasted and chocolate malts, and I get a stale quality to it. It also goes down like water and I prefer my beers to be full bodied. I consider this a third tier porter, under the 3 i previously listed as top tier, and Black Butte being second tier. Still above average for the style and a decent offering
