Porter. I like porters. This should work out nicely. Solid dark beer. Decent head on pour. Who doesn't like a little head? A little bit of sexy lacing action. Smells like roasted malts, chocolate, and some noticeable hops to me. Thought it was going to be like Jose Marti from Cigar City. Dont get hops with taste though, which is fine by me. A little boozy, and a hair on the sweet side. Mouthfeel is wet. Easy drinking enough. Reminds me of Samuel Smith's Taddy a little bit. Nice roasted flavor with a little coffee/smoke at the end. Not going to compete with Great Lakes Fitzgerald, Rogue Mocha, or Deschutes Black Butte, but overall a very good porter that I would recommend trying.

4.19/5  rDev +4.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Serving Type - Can

Appearance - Blackish tan/brown with a nice thick, foamy, creamy 1 inch head with tons of lacing.

Smell - Roasted malts, cocoa, coffee, chocolate, dark fruits like raisin, plum, grapes, molasses, brown sugar, some smoke and a faint fruity hop note near the finish.

Taste - First sip is a nice mix of roasty, smokey malts with a nice balance of bitter coffee and sweet chocolate, cococa and added sugars. Smooth and creamy, dark fruits add some complex flavors and balance. Slight hop kick in the finish that adds a little cirtic tang.

Mouthfeel - Malts coat the tongue with roasty, smoked flavors. Palate picks up some dark fruits, coffee and chocolate. Aftertaste is a little watery weak but has some malts and sugars.

Overall - Pretty good beer really. Huge malt backbone balanced out with some chocolate and coffee. Not too sweet, not too roasted and smoked, just smooth and easy to enjoy. A must try for porter fans.

Always a fan of porters and the 6.8% ABV doesn't hurt for this one.

Initial aromas of raisin and hops. Got a lot of alcohol up front to begin with then mellowed after warming.

Good balance of malts with low hop bitterness. Nothing stood out as too impressive with this beer but certainly holds up with most porters I've had.

Certainly will give this a go again, especially if it's on tap.
