4.08/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Bottle, dated 10/27/12, poured into a teku on 1/22/13.

Pour: Really nice splashy midnight black, with a two finger frothy khaki head. Head leaves some pretty superb lacing, and remains as a rim through out the glass.

Smell: Big roasted malts up front, with some bitter dark chocolate, and light roasted coffee bean. Some light floral hops. Finishes roasty.

Taste: Big bitter roast with some chocolate, coffee, and a light char. Some more floral hops and a ever so slight him of lemon (this note is crazy subtle, but I get it). Finishes bitter with roast.

Mouthfeel: Exceptionally creamy. Not too heavy, which is exactly what I wanted. Velvety carb.

Overall: This porter was really nice. Similar to Everett or Twilight of Idols from HF, but with more of an assertive hop profile.

16.9 oz bottle, bottled on 12/30/12, poured into a nonic pint glass.

A- Pours black with an inch and a half of khaki head, leaves lots of nice lacing.

S- Roasty aroma of coffee and char along with some chocolate and fruit sweetness.

T- Lots of coffee and roasted grain, just a bit of smoky char, has a nice balance of chocolate and fruity sweetness. Alcohol is well-hidden.

M- Medium-bodied, has a smooth, creamy feel with a dry finish.

O- A really nice porter, I've said this in previous reviews but I really don't think that MBC makes a bad beer, along with all of their other brews I thought this was really enjoyable.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Bottled on 11/20/12 (looks like it is batch 3)

A: Pours an opaque jet black in color with just the faintest hints of dark amber near the edges when held up to the light and a light amount of carbonation near the surface. The beer has a finger tall foamy dark tan to mocha head that slowly reduces to a very thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer with a medium sized medium thick patch that includes some medium and large bubbles and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of dark roasted malts with some lighter notes of coffee and chocolate. Very light notes of citrus and pine hops as well.

T: This beer starts out with a moderate to strong flavor of roasted malts with some lighter notes of bittersweet chocolate and freshly roasted/ground coffee. There is a very light note of vanilla and some citrus and pine hop notes - also, there is a slight earthiness to the beer as well. Light to moderate amounts of bitterness which fades pretty quickly.

M: Slightly heavier than medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly sticky.

O: Really like the roastiness of both the malts and the coffee, flavors and smells, in this beer. It is pretty easy to drink with very well hidden ABV and is perfect for sipping on a cool winter evening, while watching football but would also go greatly in front of the fireplace on a snowy evening. This is well worth picking up, one of the nice new porters that I have found this winter.
