Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: ClockworkOrange on 02-04-2009

Dark in color with a ruby hue with forward notes of chocolate and caramel and light toffee notes in the aroma. Flavor has big notes of bittersweet chocolate with notes of caramel and toffee and moderate hop bitterness and more caramel and toffee and slight hints of char. A big take on a classic style.

Purchased at Whole Foods around the corner from the brewery and consumed a day later. Poured into a pint glass (half full as I was sharing) a nice dark color with a nice light brown one to two finger head. Did not hold it up to any light, so not sure about the ruby hue. Very little if any nose, even after the head dissipated. Just a mild and typical porter smell. Taste followed the nose. I did not get much for such a highly rated and higher ABV porter. Warmer sips after letting it sit did not really change things. Average a best.

Highly carbonated with hop bitterness provide a bite that I do not care for. This is a fine porter. Itsbetter than average but didn't really stand out.

12oz can

A- Dark black with khaki head, low in retention. Carb sticks to the glass.

S- Bland, void; some malt

T- It comes off as a really light porter with a weird aftertaste. The aftertaste is minimal, but comes off as a vegetable. V8

M- Very light, some decent carb follows down the throat

O- Just not impressed. CCB is a top brewery for me; this one just didn't hit the spot.
