3.8/5 rDev -3.8%
look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: When I poured my bottle of Black Marlin Porter it had very little head. Almost no bubbles. Had a nice rich dark brown color.
Smell: Terrific aroma, nice amount of roasted smokiness.
Taste: Just like the smell, there was plenty of smoked flavor in the first sip. Also a big coffee note.
Mouthfeel: With the robust flavors, I was surprised by how thin the body was. It was flat. And whenever porters like this one creep towards the body of cold coffee, well, I'm not a fan.
Drinkability: Decent, but I'm not racing to blog/tweet for my friends to try this one. Maybe my bottle was a little off? I'm sure my next beer from Ballast Point will be better.

3.75/5 rDev -5.1%

Color- black walnut. Slight head tinted mocha.
Aroma of coffee, hops and dark chocolate.
Taste- Mildly hoppy but good roasted malt body with hints of coffee finishing with a mild charcoal note. A hop-head might like this porter but a porter lover would like this too. Good blend of traditional and hop-head.
Poured from 650 ml bomber into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass). tasted Jan. 2013.
