3.96/5 rDev -1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
12oz can - either canned on 01/07/2014 or best by - can't tell. Served in a Libby globe porter glass.
Appearance: Very dark brown, cola brown at the edges. Thin tan head ring at the edge with some persistent islands of lacing.
Smell: Cocoa powder and metal - a copper penny.
Taste: Chocolate, coffee notes, milk chocolate sweetness, roasted malt, and a mild bitter finish.
Mouthfeel: Smooth and creamy, mild spiciness from the carbonation.
Overall / Drinkability: Surprisingly sweet - almost feel this would be a dessert beer, and yet I think it would pair really well with a burger or a steak. Tasty though - hits my sweet tooth just right an I wouldn't mind another one.
Serving type: can

Very dark brown that appears black in the glass. Just over one finger of head forms and sticks around for a long time before eventually settling to a thin cap. Light spotty lacing is left down the glass.
Dark malt aroma of chocolate, molasses, and graham crackers. Getting some fruity esters as well. No sign of alcohol. Getting a very slight hint of acidity.
Cannot make up my mind if this tastes more Belgian or British. There is a slight acidic bit in the finish that really confuses my palate. I get flavor notes of chocolate, coffee, and caramel from the malt. A lot of yeast esters and phenols as I pick up cherries, plums, and raisins. A touch of spice as well. Alcohol is not noticeable.
Starts off as a solid, robust porter. But the finish is really weak and thin. Feels like a much smaller beer. I do not think the carbonation is the problem as I find that solid.
Different sort of porter. Has some unique properties that does not make beer easy to categorize. Part Belgian, part British, and part American.
