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

3.73/5  rDev +9.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Served slightly chilled into a pint glass.

Pours a deep, rich brown with quarter inch dark tan head that quickly recedes leaving light surface layer and moderate lacing.

Nice aromas of roasted malts, coffee and chocolate.

Tastes follows through the aromas with just a hint ash.

Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation and sweet, slightly creamy finish and pleasant aftertaste.

Pleasantly surprised by this beer. Have had some of their other offerings that were not so great. This one is very nice and will definitely get again. Only recommendation would be just a touch more body.
