Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
This is a heavily hopped high gravity porter featuring the hopping levels of an India Pale Ale with the rich and roasty malt profile of a robust porter. Heavy hop rates, while uncommon in today's porters were not unknown historically and recipes from the British porter producers of the 1800's evidence hopping rates far in excess of what is common for the style today.

A: Jose Marti is nearly black, with garnet highlights penetrating only when the brew is held to the light. Head is a touch weak, but overall this brew looks pretty enticing.

S: Deep black chocolate, and touch of espresso, and a hint of walnut create a rich bouquet.

T: Slightly sweet malt is balanced by bitter dark chocolate and coffee, topped off by a touch of Pacific Northwest hops. this brew is incredibly enjoyable.

M: Full bodied and chewy. The texture perfectly complements the richness in flavor.

D: A fantastic brew from the South's greatest asset, Cigar City. This is definitely worth a try if you can get your hands on it, as it is one of the better American Porters out there.

4.05/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a snifter. Acquired in a trade

A- pours a deep brown translucent body with a 2 finger off white head the reduces slowly to frothy foam.

S - molasses, toffee, heavy bread and pine, resin, slight roasted coffee. Very aromatic

T- starts off with toffee, fresh coffee, the follow through is pretty hoppy with resin and pine, the finish is roasty malt, biscuity, and toasty.

M- medium body and carbonation

Overall a nicely crafted porter. I'd put it more in the black IPA category.
