look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Seemingly black, it shows reddish-brown highlights when held up to the light. A tan head starts out well and holds at a small, dense cap.
Smell: The aroma has a good dose of roasted coffee, along with a bit of chocolate. Sizable undercurrent of Centennial hops.
Taste: Starts out fairly bitter, with lots of Centennial hop flavor, then balances out with a rush of roasted and chocolate malts. There's a slight acidity towards the end, which pairs with a roasted grain bitterness, that makes for a lengthy, dry finish.
Mouthfeel: On the lighter side of medium in body, from their sugar-gobbling Pacman yeast. Finishes dry and bitter.
Drinkability: Damn good. This is close to being a dry stout, with it's roasted malts and bitterness.
While not quite outstanding, this is a well-made and highly enjoyable robust porter from a great brewery.
Serving type: bottle
