3.6/5 rDev -3.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5
Poured from a 12oz can into a Town Hall glass 2/27/11.
Pours a solid black with a huge beautiful light brown head. Lots of lacing even after a couple minutes.
Smell IMO gets better with its temp. I like the stoutish coco, malts, and coffee. Great in the smell category
Taste is weaker then the smell. I can still get the chocolate and coffee tastes but it is really subdued. Needs to be backed up a bit more by the chocolate and coffee tastes..
Mouthfeel is flat. I like the beer but the lack of staying power and weight for a stout really hurt this beer for me.
Drinkability is moderate. If they increase the chocolate and the mouth feel this would be an +B to -A beer. I can't recommend this as very drinkable at this point as the beer had significant flaws.

Pile O dirt pours a black color with a large long lasting tan head. Their is a weak aroma, but has nice coffee notes. The taste is nice and full, with strong coffee flavors, and a nice mellow hoppy undertone. Nice strong flavors, and very full bodies. Overall a very nice strong tasty porter.
Serving type: on-tap
