4/5  rDev -1.5%

an outstanding glass of porter here, looking dark as pavement from the tap, with a mocha cream head on top and a deep dark complexion that flashes milk chocolate brown to obsidian black. the nose and taste are in line with one another, loaded with coffee notes and bitter roasted barley. it could be called a stout and not be off, its got the body and the roast levels for it, but it maintains its drinkability with a very clean finish from a robust yeast strain and a minimal hop profile. i think its very authentic, but also very rich and perfect for the new england autumn, which is fast approaching. so smooth in mouthfeel, just puffy like a marshmallow on the palate, but loaded with the dark malt character. one of the better homegrown porters ive had this year, and a great first impression was made here on me by the greenport harbor folks. looks from their listing like they do some cool stuff too.

Here at Paulie Gee's in Brooklyn. Served in a standard pint glass from on tap. Very small head, dissipates quickly, nothing sticks to the sides of the glass.
Very deep color, but very clear. Just a little lighter in color than something like cola, but not much.
Low alcohol, scent is a bit of coffee, roasted malt.
Taste is a bit complex, coffee and honey, maybe. Pleasant to drink.
Low carbonation, was going to say flat but them I let it sit on my tongue for a moment an there was plenty of sharpness from the carbonation, just can't see it.
There's also a creaminess or maybe a vanilla taste/nose that is there, but it's not cloying.
Would recommend this to those who like a Guinness type stout but looking for a little more adventure.

04/16/14 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Had this two drinks ago so my impression lags real-time but I can say this is an enjoyable brew. Not TOO much of anything including the ABV but worthy nonetheless.
