Growler sent to me from beerhunter76, reviewed the day after I received it. Poured into a Stone chalice...
A: Very dark pour, oily with no head, minimal carbonation...opaque with slight traces of red along the edges of the glass. Very dark for a porter.
S: Chocolatey sweetness and nuttiness, solid roasted malt backbone shows a light dusting of coffee aromas. Maybe a hint of dark caramel or molasses...
T: Follows the nose, and suffers a bit from lack of carbonation. There is a nice chocolatey sweetness, cocoa, some flashes of dry nuttiness, and some roasted bitter notes of coffee. Dry nutty finish. As it warms some pecan and more dark caramel emerges.
MF: Tough to gauge, obviously I'd like more carbonation...as it is, its drinkable and a bit oily/heavy/syrupy.
O: Really pleasant porter with a good flavor profile. Not life-changing, but a beer that could be a really good everyday drinker. Not too sweet, but definitely leans towards chocolate, caramel, and pecan, which is a good thing in my book.
