look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Poured from a 22oz bottle into my Ommegang chalice. Pours a dark brown in color, which blends into a darker brown to black...with a mild and thin creamy tan head, with little retention. Appearance looks like a lighter consistency porter.
Aroma is pretty average. Some coffee beans...kind of burnt actually. Slight malts and yeasts. Overall though, the aroma is pretty light.
Flavor is right where I thought it would be. Great Divide makes solid beers, so I expected this to be quality...and it is. Not exceptional, but very solid and a good drinking porter. Medium to light mouthfeel, decent carbonation, loads of coffee flavors throughout. The over roasted and burnt characteristics are a good thing...but could use just a bit more sweetness. Slightly above average...but glad I got to try none the less!
