Tennessee

3.71/5  rDev -5.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

This one pours thick and dark. Heavy on the head with nice lacing and a sticky retention. Smells of chocolate malt, grassy grains, dark cherry, and toasted bread. The overall scent is not strong but is what you would expect out of a good porter. The beer tastes of bittersweet chocolate with a nice smoky backbone. There's definitely a dry, malty flavor reminiscent of a dry irish stout as well. It finishes with a hint of light hop bitterness but overall is well-balanced. The mouthfeel is light bodied and bubbly, somewhat frothy. Overall a nice well-balanced porter. You can always count on SN to deliver high quality stuff and this one is no different.
