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.
