4.08/5  rDev +7.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

I bought this as a single at Union Jack's on the Manatawny. I drank it in a goblet. This is from the Frederick Brewing Co. in Maryland.

Pours a deep, dark mahogany with a one finger head of tan foam. The head falls to small islands and a ring, with splotches of lacing.

Aroma is chocolatey as hell, sweet caramel, and a nice spicy hop smell. Very fruity, with notes of raisins and cherries.

Flavor is chocolate, pretty darn sweet, with a decent level of bittering hops. It's very fruity, with fruits like above, and some floral/spicy hop flavor. This is almost, but not quite, too sweet. There is some flavor I can't identify late that is really nice. Aftertaste is sweet chocolate.

Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy, pretty full bodied, with low to medium carbonation. Residual sugar is high,. Finish dries out ever so slightly.

This is a pretty damn good robust porter. Nice big chocolate character, decent hop bitterness, good hop flavor, nice and fruity, and malty sweet. I'd do a case of this if I could find it.
