Pennsylvania

3.35/5  rDev -13.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours with a finger of rocky, dark tan to chestnut head with bubbles of varying size that fades only slightly, holding up a good gridwork of lace. Beer is color of molasses with no real highlights and obviously no visible carbonation. Rich, smooth smells of roast barley, pumpernickel, and raisins covered in baking chocolate. Paradoxically, these aromas seem to sweeten with warmth. Not to blast anything about the smell, but where's the mocha? Coffee does seem to be more forthright in the taste... rich bitterness of plain black coffee abounds, with a finish like bitter greens left to caramelize too long... charred iron skillet flavors. Carbon. Flavors are integrated but lack development. Mouthfeel is firm and moderately sticky with tingling carbonation; persistent bitter aftertaste; heavy finish. Drinkable, but a bit too aggressive to be sessionable, and not quite curious enough to encourage exploration. Solid, yes. But also--at least for non-coffee drinkers like myself--one-dimensional.

4.05/5  rDev +4.7%
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.
