look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Dark brown body with Coca-Cola highlights, topped by an enormous dense light tan head. Minimal lacing.

Deep roasted coffee aroma, very inviting.

Smooth roasted taste, solid foundation. Small pleasant sour accent. Earthy hop bite.

Smooth slick mouthfeel.

A really well done porter. A must try in Mass.

Serving type: bottle

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

12 oz bottle poured into a stout glass.

Appearance: Pours a near-black with some dark brown at the edges. Lacing is very minimal and gone instantly. No lacing. Somewhat heavy carbonation. 3.75

Aroma: The nose is more faint than I expected but it's there. Black coffee, roasty malt and dark chocolate dominate. 3.75

Taste: Good stuff. The taste follows the nose, and the flavors are bold while the alcohol is mild. Roasted coffee beans lead the way. Some bitterness, but it's kind of muted by the coffee and roasty notes. It's a really smooth, flavorful porter. 4.25

Mouthfeel: It's velvet-smooth with a mild finish. A pleasure to drink. 4.5

Overall: I had high hopes for this, and it didn't disappoint. Fans of domestic porters should seek it out. It's a balanced, flavorful, easy-drinking porter that should please all dark beer fans.

Serving type: bottle
