3.73/5 rDev -4.6%
*12 oz. bottle*
Look: Dark brown almost red body, 1 finger off white soapy head.
Smell: Caramel, toasted malts, faint fruit, hint of cocoa, a touch of spice.
Taste: Sweet caramel, toasted malt, nutty, faint spice, finishes dry with a blend of chocolate and caramel in the aftertaste.
Feel: Light smooth body, par carbonation.
Overall: This porter is to the point. The aroma has more going on in it than the flavor. Not a bad thing. Sometimes I like it when a beer gets me thinking it is going to be one way with the aroma, and then changes lanes (Either good or bad). This drinks smooth and I could drink this pretty much all day. I like Robust and Roasted brews. But with all the other Porters out there this one is solid yet not adventurous. This brew is worthy.

3.75/5 rDev -4.1%
Appearance-Dark brown mahogany, off white tannish head, died down to a thin lace. Subdued carbonation.
Smell- not really aggressive aroma wise, but sweet roasted malts, smell of Carmel, almonds, hint of brewed coffee, chocolate malts.
Flavor-picking up at first chocolate, bittersweet. Astringent coffee, taste some Carmel, for whatever reason I'm tasting Folger's coffee specifically, not my favorite. Hop forward porter for sure which I'm not really digging.
Drinkability/mouthful- one and done porter for me.. Lacks body, a bit watery for a porter, I can see some who could knock back a couple but I can't get Folger's coffee out of my head kind of kills it for me personally. I like to see more body to it, more chocolate malts, less hop forwardness and a better body to the brew. Okay beer not bad, nothing to get to excited about.
