From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #61 (Feb 2012):
LOOK: Rich, dark brown, near black, opaque, creamy tan head
SMELL: Dark malts, chocolate, cold coffee, faint wood
TASTE: Smooth, creamy, a bit viscous, soda water-like carbonation, leafy, toffee, chocolaty, bready, oaty, semi-acrid, coffee, char, smoke, wood, semidry finish with rich, dark malt lingers
The use of the word “Reserve” seems to throw some beer geeks off—they apparently think it’s meant to an special release—but this is one killer robust Porter that should be judged for what it is; an über beer without the hype, and more than enough backbone to back it up.
