look: 1 | smell: 1 | taste: 1 | feel: 1 | overall: 1

Poured from 16 oz can into pint glass.
(Reviewed for a 2nd time after trading in 'bad' beers for supposedly good ones).

Appearance: pours with a 3/4" tan head that slowly recedes. Some mild lacing. Color is dark brown and completely opaque. Some carbonation bubbles clinging to sides of glass.

Aroma: off flavor dominates (vinegar?) with a background of some chocolate, bread dough, and a hint of hops and yeast.

Mouthfeel: unpleasant mouthfeel (infected?) with a sour, extremely astringent finish.

Flavor: dominate flavor is an unpleasant off-putting astringency and vinegar. Behind that unpleasantness is some chocolate and roasted barley malt. The hops are hard to pick up because they get a bit lost in the bitter vinegar.

Overall: I returned the first batch of this beer to the brewery, where they replaced it with beer that was supposedly not infected. It was. I had to drain pour the last two.

a real miss for me, and a disaster in the can. the cans have a tendency to burst open, either a cheap can or a carbonation issue. a major gusher this one, amber bubbles ooze out of the can as soon as it is opened. once i can get it settled enough to pour, its all head, airy bubbles piling up over a hazy red tinted watery brown liquid with plenty of sediment. turbid stuff. the nose is metallic like the cheap can, medium roast on the barley, and generally thin. the flavor is the same, with almost none of the complexity and richness of better porters. its also way over carbonated, thin, and devoid of much finish aside from an off and slightly astringent property that is rather unflattering. doubtful if i will revisit this beer.

Nice dark color. Exactly what I like to see in a porter. Smell is slightly roasty, slightly chocolate, totally appropriate in a porter. Taste is similar, and sufficiently complex for a brown porter. Mouthfeel is thin though. Too thin for a porter, and its the one thing standing between this beer and greatness.

Overall, average beer. Fix the watery mouthfeel and this is easily a "B" beer

Pours a hazy super dark brown with a thumbs width mocha head. A rich, sweet creamy aroma of roasted barley and some chocolate. Flavor threw me for a little loop at first as the richness the aroma offered wasn't there and the flavor was thinner than I expected, allowing the roastiness to dominate. Some silkiness to the mouthfeel to go with a mouthfeel bordering between thin and medium. Overall, a decent brew. Got a 4 pack off tallboys of this that I will have no problem putting down but probably won't be seeking this one out asap afterwards.

A thanks goes out to woodychandler for yet another canned beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a very dark brown color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, some roasted malts, a touch of chocolate. Taste is of roasted malts and coffee up front, a bit of chocolate at the finish and somewhat mild. feels full bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer.

Poured a deep brown color with a rich, creamy, light tan head; nice lacing on the glass. Soft, roasted grain smell with a hint of cocoa. Flavor is an infusion of charred grains, milk chocolate, cocoa, and a slightly metallic hop bitterness creeping through at the finish. Medium bodied; smooth; semi-dry finish.

A respectable porter that won't disappoint flavor-wise although it doesn't break any new ground for the style. It the mouthfeel seems a little weak and watery at times although the smooth grainy sweetness and dark malt flavors make up for any deficiency. Another beer that, after a while, seems to be better than the sum of its parts.

a- dark brown with decent mocha head
s - roasted malt, coffee, hint of chocolate
t - mostly roasted malt and, despite what can says, notes of medium roast coffee and chocolate. Spicy hops.
m - on thin side of medium
o- I like this beer for what it is...an easy drinking light porter. Better than any brown ale I can think of.
