22oz poured into snifter. I love Ballast Point going into this beer, so add bias factor x 10 to this review.
This one pours obsidian with a great billowy head that lingers for a bit. Bonus points already.
Flavors are complex with a great light yet creamy mouthfeel. Roasty chocolate, caramel, and bitter prune juice, with a nice dry hopped finish.
This is a great porter, San Diego style. Is a little more on style than my fav, Founders Porter, but would gladly drink over and over...
Founders has more of that coffee/chocolate thing goin on while this one is deficient in coffee flavor.
Overall, an awesome on point porter. Seek it out. Ballast Point knows their stuff...
