4.04/5  rDev +10.7%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

I don't quite recall where I picked this up, I suppose in Maryland in my biannual trips to the cliffs of Calvert County, this has been in my cellar for some months, I have a big boy ABV wise to taste after this so I thought this would be a good warmer upper...

eyes....
Jagmanimous head on this, absolutely 4 fingers tall and holding... and holding...
the head does not explode but is more like the blob, it just grows and keeps grumbling along with its bad self, nice and dark, still on the lighter side of completely opaque, lots of bubbles rising up from the dark depths feeding the blob head endlessly it seems

nose...
sweet dried cocoa, milk chocolate, hints of smoke and licorice, a touch o' molasses, pretty nice for a little ole porter

taste etc...
medium body and boy does the sip improve feel wise when you incorporate some of the fizz, almost creamy, the taste follows the nose here, nice chocolate tones, a bit of dryish flavor, a bit of ash/smoke in the aftertaste, nothing dominant and then a nice subtle bitterness to finish off, nothing is over whelming, toward the end I am getting a touch more molasses before the bitter twang

verdict?
a really nice porter, why the hell was I hiding this in the cellar ? next time out in MD I will seek this out on tap, very nice beer, worth checking out.

3.84/5  rDev +5.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

I am still not 100% sure on how to rate porters, especially with the newer black IPA style. Before getting into the review, in my mind, this tends towards a black IPA.

A: it was a darker bar I tried this in, but pretty black with decent foamy head on the sides, returning in force with a swirl. Slight lack of lacing.
S: sorry for lack of detail here, but... black IPA
T: lack of malt depth, but not so much so to be out of balance with the hops. A roasty, unsweet, coffee-bitter type beer that doesn't offend.
M: just a little light, I think. Carbonation is good, though.
O: I think I produced a comparable beer in feel, maybe close in taste. Granted, I was shooting for a stout.

Serving type: on-tap
