I've been meaning to taste this brew for some time and I'm glad I did. Poured dark brown with a hint of a caramel color shining through. Nice 2 inch tan head the cascade quickly to the top yet fully lasted through the session. The scent was a robust roasted malt, molasses and caramel upfront. Somewhere in the middle I got a hint of coffee ending with vanilla. The flavor was right on with the smell. Medium body, watery and slightly oily with a lively carbonation palate feel. Overall, I like this porter alot. I felt it was well rounded in flavor and aroma. More of this brew will come home with me. Enjoy

4.14/5  rDev +9.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 4.25

appearance- It's a rich dark brown with a half finger head that quickly goes away

smell- the smell is a refreshing mocha-coffee smell. It smells very sweet and bourbon like.

taste- you get a lot of mocha flavor in this beer. maybe a little bit of a sweet bourbon taste which i really like. The finish is a drier coffee taste which lingers for a while on the tongue and cheeks and leaves the mouth dry. I am not of fan of beer that finish in this way nor am I a fan of the way this one finished however, I am a fan of this beer.

Mouth feel is very wet and smooth. not creamy at all. this is quite a lot of carbonation, almost too much for a porter I think. I'd prefer a little less carbonation when I'm drinking a porter or stout.

Overall- This is a good beer to sit down with and have with a dinner. I might buy this beer again. definitely not a session beer. I do like this though but for some reason this beer is a little harder for me to judge.
