this porter is the bomb, enormous body, palate coating inky dark brown viscous brew that has an almost belgian yeast character to it, albeit subtly and more up front than in the finish, but a cool twist to a brilliantly made beer. so much body, muddy in look and feel, with an inch or so of mocha colored head with wonderful retention. dry bitter roasty vibe to the grain base, a touch of rye in here too perhaps, it has that big round almost spicy element. the alcohol is hidden real well tell, this drinks a lot quicker than an 8% beer usually does. there is also this lightly toasted marshmallow thing going on towards the finish that i like a lot. i have read people that called this hoppy, i didnt think so, it seems balanced well to me, but my bottle may have some age on it and allowed the hop element to simmer some. overall though one of the better straight ahead porters i have had in recent memory.

Served from tap in a tumbler at Firkin.

Finishing off my Firkin night with a porter I'd had my eye on for a while back in the day (read: a year or so ago). It pours a straight black-brown topped by a finger or so of sandstone foam. The nose comprises roasted malts, mild treacle, light anise, light cocoa powder, a touch of nuttiness, and a vague sense of tobacco. The taste hits my tongue with alternation blasts of dark greens and pine resin at one moment and darkly-roasted malts, coffee, and treacle the next. Each wave overlaps with the other, precluding me from properly preparing for what might come next. Gotta say, the hops component here comes across too powerful for my tastes. The body is a staunch medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fairly dry finish. Overall, this is just too hoppy for its own good (in my eyes, anyway). Seeing beyond the hops, though, and straining to do just that, the base porter seems pretty solid. Just sayin'.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Black/very dark brown pour, two finger light brown head. Really great retention, lots of tracing.
Rich porter smell: nice rich roasted malts, dark chocolate, macchiato coffee, with hints of smoke, licorice, dark fruit esters and a touch of green leafy hops.
Lots of juiciness in the initial sip, zesty and quite sour, mix of oranges, figs and plums, getting covered by heavily roasted malts, very dark cooking chocolate and strong grounded coffee beans. Licorice and anise. A short burst of citrusy hops in the finish bring a nice crisp feel, but it's rapidly pushed away by ashy, charcoal roast, with a hint of smoke too. Leafy and earthy hops in the aftertaste, with the lingering burnt malts and a touch of the dark fruitiness.
Creamy body with a low carbonation, nicely hidden alcohol, great balance of roasted malts and bitter hops from start to finish (and after).
Very drinkable and tasty porter, though some people would find the sourness off-putting. It worked for me though.
