look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Pours a beautiful, dark, opaque brown with a creamy looking, though not long-lived, tan head.
Smell is roasted & toasted malts, some coffee, an astringent note with a touch of green wood. Well balanced.
Taste is coffee and burnt malts forward, a bit of the astringency and not a lot more.
Medium-ish body, lighter effervescence that tickles the whole surface of the tongue. Drying, fairly clean finish for the style. A little too burnt coffee for me, could definitely benefit with a bit of complexity.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

12 ounce bottle -> snifter glass

A - pours up the expected obsidian opaque black with a big two finger caramel colored head. retention is fair. Lacing is good.

S - sweet molasses and chocolate, very rich and aromatic

T - This is the definite weakness. It has a typical porter flavor profile but there are two elements that just don't work here for me. The first is a cola like flavor. I'm good with that, but in this case it is too strong. The second is a big sour note which is more of a deal breaker for me. There is a mild earthy hop taste at the finish, but it is a little too understated for me.

M - decent carbonation, no real aftertaste.

O - drinkable but unbalanced. As a big porter fan, this one falls short of what I want my porters to be. (Smuttynose Robust, Bells, Founders, Sierra Nevada, and Old Leghumper are better examples.)
