look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.5

From a 500 ml brown bottle. Pours out a heavy, dense, seemingly oppressive pitch black shade, nearly ominous for what it's worth. For a Porter it looks like one hell of a Stout! No dark brown here, this is light impermeable black. Quick splash of loose tan head that retreats to a ring around the top of the beer.

Toasty, roasty, nutty malt on the nose, prevalent coffee and some mild cocoa.

Toasty, roasty malt up front, molasses, soft milk chocolate, cafe au lait, with a healthy kick of herbal, citrusy hops on the finish. Toasty, nutty character lingers on into the aftertaste along with grapefruit rinds. Once it warms the alcohol warmth really starts to blossom.

Mouthfeel is on the fuller end of the spectrum, not quite as heavy or dense as the appearance hints at. Texture is somewhat sticky yet also a bit thin, while carbonation is minimal.

It works, whatever it is, this American Porter was incredibly enjoyable to drink, and was pleasantly balanced for a Mikkeller offering--everything in its place and no particular aspect trying to steal the show or overwhelm. A total winner, I hope to snap up some more.

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.

A - Beautiful looking porter. Deep cola pour into a solid black body. Creamy, light khaki cap of foam. Nice retention and ok lace.

S - Rye bread, dark bitter chocolate, molasses, almond, Nutella, touch of cold booze.

T - Smooth and roasty. Dark toast, dark chocolate truffles, bitter herbs, pumpernickel bread, toasted hazelnuts.

M - Medium body, spot on for the style. Smooth, creamy finish.

O - A great porter, one of the better examples of the style.

Thanks to Tauroe for sending this one down! Reviewed from notes. Poured from 16.9 oz. bottle into an Upland pint glass.

A: Very dark brown and opaque. Forms a thin tan creamy head and almost no visible carbonation.

S: Roasted malts, coffee, cacao, a bit creamy, and some sweet maltiness. There's elements here that remind me of amaretto as well.

T: Coffee, lactose creaminess, cacao, and a nutty (almonds? Or almost peanut butter?) flavor at the swallow. Creamy sweet with mild roasted bitterness in the hang.

M: Creamy, heavy body for style. Low carbonation sensation, and alcohol very well-hidden.

O: Wow - this was really pretty damn pleasant. Mikkeller beers are often hit or miss; but this was a hit for sure. Tasty.
