4.34/5  rDev +2.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from bottle dated January 2013 into my Yeti tulip. Had passed this one on a number of occasions and, with my upcoming relocation, I picked it up on my last trip to the store.

A: Pours a dark, dark brown that borders on black with a finger's worth of khaki head that doesn't stay around quite as long as I'd expect with a beer of this ABV. No other complaints, however.

S: Lots of baker's chocolate and bready malts with a hint of smoke tied in. Not overly sweet by any means, but you know you're going to get something akin to a dark chocolate brownie upon tasting it.

T: Definitely picking up on the same notes that I had gotten in the nose. Very chocolately, but more bitter than sweet. Really nice.

M: It is thick and probably bordering on a stout, but I'm enjoying this on a muggy May evening without any second thoughts. I would like to have the taste linger a little longer on the palate, but while you're drinking it, it's hard to think about staying away from another sip.

O: I'm not happy with myself for having passed this up so many times at the store. The pricepoint ($7.99) could be a bit more reasonable, but it's worth it to pick it up once in a while if you've got access. I would've loved to try this with some barrel-aging.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A-Pours dark brown. When I hold a fixed light source to my glass I can see surprisingly see all the way through (albeit barely). Hints and glimmers of crimson in the body. Head is a short lived cluster of darker tan foam. Stringy lacing.

S-A textbook stylistic aroma with an intensity level that outmuscled many Porters. Very roasty with a legitimate coffee scent. Powdered cocoa and even some vanilla sweetness. I also get some soft nuttiness.

T-A lot like biting into a hard chunk of authentic dark chocolate. The roast is very concentrated, too. Some more vanilla and some chalkiness. Roasted nuts. I can see why this recently medaled at the GABF; it's such an exemplary take on the style but it's bulked up as well.

M-Much more body than many Porters. Creamy and thick, especially for the ABV. Soft, in intrusive bubbles. Medium bitterness.

O/D-A gallant yet textbook take on the style. One of the better Porters I can remember having recently. These people at Wormtown are world class! Another example of their brewing expertise.

22oz bottle. Bottled January 2014. Pours a rich black color with over an inch of medium brown head. Lots of lacing. Aromas of chocolate, caramel, coffee, roasted malts, and earth. The taste is chocolate syrup, roasted malts, peat moss, and a hint of smoke. Some light and sweet coffee but rich chocolate syrup is the main flavor. Small amount of citrus hops. Creamy mouthfeel with a good deal of carbonation. Overall, pretty good Porter.

3.89/5  rDev -8.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours a dark chocolate brown, hues of red. Very thin wispy light brown head builds then dissipates.

Nose is heavy roast. Chocolate. Coffee. Caramel and maybe some vanilla, but mostly the roast and cocoa.

Taste is roasted malts, chocolate, bitter up front with a sweet finish. Reminds me of a milky mocha coffee drink with alcohol.

Mouthfeel is a bit thin, but nice. Coats your mouth well with a warm wet finish.

Overall this is a pretty good beer.

This beer is awesome. It's big, it's roasted, and its almost refreshing in a sense. Very Dark. Hints of chocolate and coffee keep you sipping while that creamy mouthfeel helps you to relax. This beer would be awesome for breakfast. Above all, the taste is spot on. Nutty at first, then a little chocolate milk, followed by burnt toast and a hint of hops. I'll have another!
