look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured into a 13 oz tulip glass, made for the spring of 2014. Pours a very dark brown, with a two inch sticky tan head, the settled slowly into a thick film of bubbles and cotes the sides with lace.

Smell is so sweet and roasty. Coffee, dark chocolate, and hints of vanilla.

Taste fallows the nose, very strong coffee with the other flavors in a supporting role.

Body is medium,nice amount of life, very dry, and goes down easy, but drinks larger than its 6% abv.

Overall this is a very nice porter, much more sophisticated than its name. Impressed with this one.

In a pint glass this beer was a very dark brown, almost black, color. There was a small tan head.

Roasted malt aroma. Coffee and chocolate.

Nice taste. Espresso/chicory. Some dark chocolate.

Medium-bodied. Pleasantly bitter. One of the more enjoyable beers from White Birch.

From the 650 ml. bottle, Spring 2014 batch no. 1096. Sampled on March 14, 2014.

The pour is a gorgeous looking dark brown with a cloudy appearance and a long-lasting but delicate tan head.

The aroma is alive with dark toasted malts, coffee, and an earthy and clean but punchy hop note.

The body is medium and a tad astringent.

The taste echoes the aroma with its toasted dark malt vibrancy with a coffee grinds chaser and a modest dry bitterness at the tail end. Really well put together Porter.

Pours a solid dark brown/black color with a good sized fluffy khaki head that persists forever. Lots of chocolate and coffee in the aroma as well as hints of caramel and light bits of dark dried fruits. There's a slight earthy hop aroma to provide a bit of balance. The flavor follows the aroma quite well. Lots of milk and dark chocolates along with plenty of roasted grains. Light earth and fruits round out the flavor quite nicely. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a creamy sweet velvety mouthfeel. Wow, that's a damn fine beer right there. Creamy, smooth, sweet, chocolatey, this is a great porter.

Poured a dark brown body with two finger head that goes away real quick and leaves little lace on top of an aroma that is balanced between chocolate and caramel sweetness and some roasted/bread/coffee malts. Medium bodied, not really thick enough to be chewey, hops are barely there and this beer is about the malts. I find the beer to be simple but enjoyable as I get a balance between mainly chocolate and roasted malts and I must say the beer tends to be on the sweet side. Not the most complex porter but pretty enjoyable.

This porter absolutely blew me away. I was only able to have a half-pint because it was the last of the keg, but my God was it worth it. It poured a beautiful black, no head on mine unfortunately because it was the last of the keg. Aromas of dark chocolate and roasted coffee. Taste - magnificent roasted coffee coffee coffee - like Turkish coffee - it still lingers in my memory actually. Very flavorful yet not astringent or overwhelming. Best porter I've had to date. I had the Founders once I finished my half pint, and it really paled in comparison.
