3.49/5 rDev -7.7%
Appearance is medium to dark brown in color and slightly opaque.
Smells of caramel, chocolate, and roasted malts.
The roasted malts are most pronounced and the caramel and chocolate I got upfront are just a memory.
Too thin for a stout.
Overall, not the greatest Dark Horse offering, but good as a one off.

A - Jet black, with little head and lacing.
S - Dark fruits, roasted malts, and chocolate.
T - Pretty two-dimensional. Malts and chocolate. Maybe a touch of hops to balance out the chocolate bitterness, but this beer is all chocolate.
M - Pretty light for a porter, in my opinion, but certainly not watery. Smooth to drink, with very light-to-moderate carbonation.
O - Pretty good porter, but nothing Earth-shattering going on here.

A good, but not spectacular porter. Pours out to a dark brown to black color with a slight head. Despite the slight head, carbonation is fairly active in the glass. The aroma is that of malted milk balls. The taste interesting. There is a definite coffee/expresso taste present that borders on burnt coffee and finishes as such, bringing down its drinkability score to the average range.

Pours dark brown/black with red highlights. 1.4 inch tan head leaves lots of lace on the pint.
Aroma of coffee, chocolate and grain plus some oliy hop notes.
Flavor is chicory, chocolate, roasted coffee and some earthy, soil hints.
Mouthfeel starts promising with chocolate sweetness and full feel. Unfortunately it then slides into a moderately bitter but somewhat vapid finish that is heavily watery. Somewhat disappointing.
Drinkability is solid but wateriness makes it an unspectacular offering.
