4.03/5 rDev +12.3%
Pours from a growler into my glass a deep dark brown bordering on black with a small light tan head on top of the brew along with some spotty lacing. Aromas start with a sweet roasted maltiness with a nice pronounced chocolate aroma. Light coffee tones are met by a nice lightly citric hop profile. Pretty nice.
First sip brings a nice dark roasted maltiness met by plenty of chocolate flavor and a bit of a underlying coffee hint as well. Smooth with a nice creaminess that flows down with a green hop flavor at the end of each sip that brings just enough bitterness into play. Overall this is a tasty porter.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied and goes down smooth. Works well for the style. I've enjoyed the few beers I have sampled from Rock Bottom Yorktown and I hope to get back again soon to try some more. Hopefully they will branch out into some barrel aged brews in the future as well!

Also called Robust Porter this beer is at 6.0% ABV
A- This beer has a opaque brown body with a creamy tan head that fades to a film pretty quickly.
S- This beer has a slight earthy dark malt note with a slight sweetness to the smell.
T- This beer has a black roasted malt flavor with a pot caramel flavor and some chocolate malt notes come through pretty strong as it warms. There is a soft pine hop bite in the finish that has a slight tang note to it.
M- This beer has a medium mouthfeel with a slight watery note to the texture.
D- This beer has some nice dark flavors but there isn't much depth to the flavors or any balance to add interest.
