3.6/5 rDev -2.7%
Pours a half finger of tan head on a black body.
The aroma is mostly burnt malt and wood.
The taste is a smooth burnt and roasted malt with a mild lemon bitter finish.
The texture is smooth with crisper edges and moderate carbonation.
A nice solid drinkable porter. Enjoyable.

Reddish cast to the dark brown brew in the St. Bernardus globe. Not much foam. Some carbonation in the mouth but it all flattens out after a while. A little red wine in the nose with the malty smell.
Dark and a little zingy, with lots of the mild roast and caramel. Not very sweet. Some grainy taste and a faint hint of charred barley. A faint bitterness and the dark woody notes for the aftertaste. Watery body.
This has some charms but it's probably better on tap from a fressh keg. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Market of Choice on 29th in Eugene.

Pours a dark brown with a thick creamy tan colored head that dissipated into thin wispy streams floating around my pint glass.
The smell was strong with coffee and chocolate. There are hints of nutty and some hidden dark fruit scents as well.
Taste was slightly off from what I would expect from a porter, maybe there was just more going on in the flavor than I expected. There were definite coffee and chocolate notes and some nice bitter finish but there was also a bit more nuttiness than I would expect from a porter. Also a tad on the sweet side for me. Don't get me wrong I enjoyed it I just don't think it was on-style.
Mouthfeel was nice considering the lower ABV. I enjoyed the level of carbonation and over all thought it was nice.
Great beer, not exactly on style in my opinion but very good overall.

I bought a bottle of Pin Up Porter in a bottle shop. Poured in to a pint glass.
Pours and opaque black color, with a thin bubbly off-white head.
Smell is a roasted gran aroma with some coffee notes along side.
The taste is a sweetened black coffee flavor up front, coffee with sugar no cream, followed by a sweet caramel and plum flavor, with a mild bitter finish.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, slightly cloying.
Over all a good porter, but not a great one.
