3.29/5 rDev -15.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5
Appearance - Cloudy, off-white head that doesn't last very long. The body is black and thick looking.
Smell - Smells like a dark loaf of homemade bread, toasted malts
Taste - very balanced; the initial flavor has a hint of sweetness, but the finish is moderately bitter and relatively short. The flavor has tastes lightly of cocoa and coffee, but certainly shouldn't be compared to a Cocoa Porter or Coffee Porter.
Mouthfeel - Whilst swirling this porter around in my mouth, it has a medium, oily body with a light fizz.
Overall - While this really is just a standard American porter and there is nothing about which to write home, the balanced flavor makes it a very drinkable/accessible porter. The bitterness is not overwhelming.
Serving type: bottle
