3.83/5 rDev +6.1%
Arrives very dark brown with a small light tan head. Scattered lace remains after the head drops to a ring.
Smell is malt, baking chocolate, wet cardboard and a hint of hops.
Taste is dark/baking chocolate, malt, cardboard and a smoke note. Pretty good balance.
Medium-full body, lightish effervescence, nice smoky/chocolate aftertaste. Drying but only faintly warming. A solid brew drunk in Pensacola.

3.28/5 rDev -9.1%
Consumed March 10th, 2012 at the brewery.
Clear, deep brown with dark amber highlights. An exceptionally fine head of light tan bubbles provides fantastic amounts of sticky sheeting.
A little juicy melanoidin aroma with roasted dark malt accents. Anise? Unusual and subtle.
Flavor is not as expected; very clean and slightly smokey. A little more like a brown ale than a traditional porter. Not much in the way of porter flavors: not getting much coffee, chocolate or even the smoke from the nose. Oddly light on the palate.
Mouthfeel is kept interesting between the modestly thick texture and the carbonation.
Drinkable, particularly in light of the ABV, but not especially flavorful. The bourbon barrel aged version of this is outstanding, but this standard production version is a bit of a miss for me.

A: very dark brown body with a half finger head.
S: full nose with mostly smokey aromas with mild chocolate and burnt toast notes.
T: very smokey with a sweetness provided by the toffee and chocolate notes.
M: fuller bodied than I expected, moderate carbonation. Moist finish.
Overall: I like when porters have this mouthfeel and don't seem watered down. The best of the 4 beers I tried from this brewery.
