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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

a. Deep dark brown with a .5 finger head when poured into a pint glass. Lacing on the glass is thin.

s. Coffee and malt.

t. Excellent balance with coffee and malt. Not finding the chocolate
side of the mocha, but who cares - taste is a notch above above outstanding (on this scale).

m. A bit dry on the finish, but good hidden carbonation.

o. A porter that is a step above most coffee porters. I find some coffee porters to be overwhelming - the mocha toned it down nicely.
