4.13/5 rDev -0.2%
Enjoyed from the bottle while camping.
Smells really roasty and hints of coffee and molasses.
Tastes fantastic, maybe the best Smuttynose Ive had, lots of roasted malt, coffee and molasses.
Mouthfeel was silky and inviting.
Overall, this was a surprising beer to me. I loved it!

3.98/5 rDev -3.9%
Poured from 12 oz. bottle to pint glass
A - Rick dark cocoa-colored body with a foamy latte head.
S - Ridiculously roasty - tobacco, molasses, and espresso. Just a hint of ripe fruit esters.
T - The roasted malt notes are immediate and enveloping - think a decadent dark double chocolate chip cookie. A touch of dark roast coffee in there, too. The finish has a dash of piney bitterness from the hops and some fruity esters.
M - Velvety and creamy, cut a bit thin feeling on the finish. The carbonation is lively but not overwhelming.
O - A fantastic porter. The best New England example of an American-style porter I have had to date. Founders Porter and Deschutes Black Butte probably are a hair better, but damn, if this isn't a great beer.
