Our take on an American robust porter. Dark, thick, chewy, chocolaty, and of course, generously hopped.

Annoys me that you guys rate this so highly. It tastes like crap. It's almost as bad as Firestone Walker Reserve's Porter. Not sure what it is about porters that if they are not good I want to pour them out. But I'm hugely disappointed by this one. It's just the taste - the color, smell, mouthfeel is all fine. But unfortunately the taste it most important to me. Up front it's OK, like any decent porter, not great. But the aftertaste is just totally lackluster like dirty cardboard dipped in soda water.

Pours with a small head that provides good lacing effect while drinking. Aroma is a bit light but an enjoyable roasted malt. Mouthfeel is a pleasant creaminess that makes this porter highly drinkable. The alcohol is well masked with the roasty toasty, followed by a well-balanced hop character that lingers nicely on the palate. Overall this is a top notch porter from a beautiful state.

Standard 500ml bottled in Oct 2012 poured into a cervoise. The brew pours a dark brown to black color with a khaki colored head 3 fingers strong. It fades slowly leaving a full wall of webby lace on the glass. When held to the light, some lighter reddish brown clarity is seen around the edges.

The aroma is roasty with char, earth and coffee overtop some mineral notes and herbal to piney hop character. A mild amount of fruity alcohol that is somewhat floral that fades to almost sweet milk chocolate balances out the rest of the aromatics.

The flavor is roasty and bitter with coffee and earthen aspects. Some mineral quality breaks this up with an aggressive hoppy flavoring that is somewhat vegetative to herbal and pine-like. Underneath is a bit of fruity alcohol that brings out a touch of milk chocolate but without the sweetness.

This is medium to lighter bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. It is a decent porter with plenty of character. However, I am not a fan of the strong mineral presence that is unrelenting and quite distracting.
