4.41/5  rDev +11.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a cool looking 16 oz. can into a Surly tulip glass. Can says drink by 03/22/14.

Appearance: Pours a deep dark blackish brown with a slight hint of ruby. Moderate amount of bubbles and a solid three fingers of tan head with decent retention. Leaves a lot of creamy lacing around the glass.

Smell: A nicely roasty, robust, and sweet dark malt driven aroma with a big scent of chocolate. Dark roasted barley malts with big upfront hints of sweet chocolate and cocoa nibs. Hints of coffee, cream, burnt toast, caramel, toffee, biscuit, lactose, grains, nuts, and a little smoke. Sweet hints of burnt brown sugar. Solid hop backing with earthy hints of grass and subtle hints of citrus orange, lemon, and grapefruit. A really good roasty aroma.

Taste: As robust and good as it smells, big dark roasted malts with lots of sweet chocolate notes. Big taste of dark roasted barley malts with good notes of dark chocolate, cocoa nibs, coffee beans, cream, lactose, burnt toast, caramel, toffee, grains, biscuit, nuts, and some smoked malt. Sweet notes of burnt brown sugar. A surprisingly strong hop presence for the style with notes of grass, pine, and subtle citrus notes of orange, grapefruit, and lemon. Hops provide a nice balancing bitterness. A very good porter taste.

Mouthfeel: Body is on the slightly higher end of medium. Carbonation is moderate. Very creamy, silky, roasty, and smooth.

Overall: A really outstanding take on a Porter. Great roasty chocolate and coffee flavors with a solid backing presence of hops. Almost more of a Stout than Porter.

Serving type: can
