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.)

Good smell and look. Very heady on the pour, a little too carbonated, a bit sour in the end. Still, it had some of the basic characteristics of most porters. Nothing to brag home about. Would not buy a six pack of it, but an ok beer if you want a porter and can't find a better one.

Poured out a deep inky black with no light getting through anywhere. There's a creamy tan head than lasts around the circumference and leaves spotty lacing. The aroma is very mild, but does have some hints of chocolate amongst the roast malt. The taste is mostly very roasted malt (you could say burnt) with some light earthy hops on the finish. There's a nice silky feeling and solid weight to the body. A good porter.
