3.3/5  rDev -3.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours out a clear chestnut brown color with a light brown head. Rather light in color compared to most other porters I've had.

Smell: The lukewarm aroma tries hard to hide any detection of roasted malts, chocolate, and nuts. Be sure to give it a very vigorous swirl before sniffing!

Taste: What to say about a beer that there's not much to say about? Malts are syrupy sweet (Tootsie Pops) and a touch toasty. Not much actual hop flavor, but there is some brief, spicy bitterness in the finish. No discernable alcohol flavors.

Mouthfeel: Such a crisp porter! Mouthfeel is fairly thin, bordering on watery. Perhaps this is actually pretty appropriate for the Florida heat...

Drinkability: Not impressive. I wouldn't even touch this beer with YOUR tongue.

3.6/5  rDev +5.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

12 oz bottle poured near black with a towering, creamy light brown head.

Feel: creamy and full bodied feel. Soft, medium carbonation.

Rich and relatively complex, with a good suggestion of chocolate and a hint of coffee with the dark roasted malt character. Subtle hints of smoke and black licorice.

O: a robust porter in style, this is also on the new label.

3.63/5  rDev +6.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: extremely dark hue with some ruby highlights when held up to the light. There also appears to be very light haze and a strong effervescence. Head is a thick finger of frothy tan foam with decent retention and a nice lace. A good looking porter.

Smell: roasty with a good caramel character. There's also a sweet creaminess here which reminds me a lot of a milk stout. It's a bit muddy, but overall pretty good.

Taste: roastiness right off the bat, with a bitter astringency that detracts a bit from overall enjoyment. Some of the sweetness from the aroma is there, but mostly it and the caramel are gone. Not as well-composed as the aroma, but not too bad.

Mouthfeel: medium-light body with a good carbonation and creaminess. I like it.

Overall: this beer is pretty decent, but it lacks balance and the flavor has too much bitterness from the roasted malt.

I really like this beer. It is Malty, Complex, Roasty, Chocolaty, Medium-body. Excellent head. I will buy again when it comes out next year. This is the first time I have tried this Micro Brewery I will now put it on my to try list. I am glad someone is making a nice Porter. I wish more would. The local micro said that it's a winter beer. I don't agree.

Serving type: on-tap
