This is my first American craft beer if I don't count Samuel Adams and I'm very interested to taste an American interpretation of an English classic.
APPEARANCE: Typical porter brownish black. Head looks like that of an expresso, kind of yellowish.
SMELL: Soft porter smell, not strong. I can sense a sweetness. Sucking the last drip from the rim of the bottle I get a taste of mocha coffee and even rose water.
TASTE: A typical smokey, tart porter flavour with a pleasant softness that creates an interesting balance. The coffee is subtle, adding a levelling mellowness to the brew. Ever so slightly hoppy too. There's a subtle sherbet flavour which provides a tingling sensation on the gums.
OVERALL: Both disappointed and impressed. I thought the coffee would be way more upfront but it only imparted a soft mellowing sweetness to the balance, which actually made for a nice tasting porter anyway. One of the best I've had, albeit I've never had a bad one.
