4.15/5  rDev +4.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a dark brown. Holding right up to a lightbulb, it is very bright brown with a deep reddish hue. On top sits a 2 finger khaki head that never quite vanishes like frothed milk on top of a cappuccino after it has been sitting for a while.

The aroma is damn good. All different kinds of chocolate aromas are out in full force, yet in perfect harmony. A touch of fresh roasted grain sits well with the chocolate aromas. As it warms, I get more caramel malt and dark fruit.

The flavor is malty and leans toward sweet. Bitterness is medium for the style but soft. This porter is not at all hoppy - actually I think some of the bitterness is from the roasted grain. A touch of raisiny dark fruit likely from dark crystal malt is subtle but noticable. Roastiness shows up more in the finish. Some chocolate, more noticable when it is cool than warm. Slick but a little creamy like drinking milk. Very good beer, but it reminds me a little too much of a dark Scotch Ale or Doppelbock rather than a roasty Porter. Plenty of body for the gravity keeps it from being thin, but still it's very drinkable.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a deep chestnut with a half finger tan head. Light dots of lace after each sip.

S: Light roasted malt, freshly ground medium roast coffee, a touch of cinnamon, powdery cocoa and some dirt. I like it.

T: Toasted malt and coffee right away. Fades into some baking chocolate, roasted grain husk, and finishes with some dry dark coffee, a touch of tobacco and bittersweet chocolate. A very nice porter. Holds back on the sweetness without becoming overly dry.

3.94/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Pours a nice deep red brown with a moderate head that laces quickly. The coloring is fantastic as it is held to the light. There is hardly any smell, but what I do get is chocolatey. The taste is smooth bitter chocolate that is very smooth. This beer is on the thinner side, but not in a bad way. If this was just a touch lower in ABV it would be a great session beer.

On tap at Stcks and Stones Greensboro.Poureda deep chocolate brown with a tinge of ruby,a thinner but well defined ta colored head atop.Aromas of bitter chocolate,roast,and hefty earth,pretty robust aromas.I liked the full mellow mouthfeel,it glided down easily.Flavors are a nice mix of almost raw earthiness and roast mixed with chocolate and some brown sugar sweetness.A well rounded beer,it has everything someone would want in a porter.
