3.78/5  rDev +8.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

12 oz brown twist-off bottle with a “bottled on” freshness date.

Appearance: Deeply intriguing dark brown colour, at first glance I thought it was black. A healthy brimming tan head has no problem sticking to the glass.

Smell: Faint coffee / chocolate mix, almost nutty, aroma.

Taste & Mouthfeel: Crisp moderate body, perfect level of carbonation not to tamper with the smoothness. A touch of burnt malt with a nearly mocha flavour to boot. Nice balance with the hops as not to get in the way too much. The lingering roasted flavours mingle with some malt sweetness in the finish.

Notes: One of the most drinkable porters in the US, give me some grilled meat or switch this beer up with some chocolates … or as a session beer, I’ll take it either way.

Serving type: bottle

3.9/5  rDev +11.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Presentation: 12 oz. short brown twist. Freshness date clearly marked.

Appearance: Dark roasted coffee in colour with a thick creamy light tan lace that sticks.

Smell: Hints of coffee and faint roasted malt and barley aromas.

Taste: Crisp and moderately bodied, smooth and dry roasted, some coffee some chocolate, flavours with a sharp hop bite to match, then following into some sweetness, chewy malt and a more rounded roasted flavour. In the end is some tasty hop leaf, light coffee and chocolate undertones and caramelized sugar. Some earth flavours in this beer also.

Notes: This is one beautiful porter, great blend of flavours to make for a very drinkable ale. It has been brewed longer than you think, since 1983!
