look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: pours dark, rich brown almost black with tan head that resolves quickly to fine lacing
Smell: warm it up a little and roasted malts, coffee, molasses
Taste: Malt, sweet with coffee and caramel notes, end notes of hops balance the profile and nice clean finish
Mouthfeel: medium bodied with minimal carbonation (think 2%milk texture)
Overall a very enjoyable porter, despite its ABV its well masked by the complex flavors. Thoroughly enjoyable and I’ll be happily stocking up on this one!

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a beautiful, completely opaque, pitch-black color with an eighth of a finger of oatmeal-colored head that quickly dissolved away into a thin lacing of foam that partially covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Very roasty and malty. Tons of roasted malt, black pepper, brown sugar and notes of freshly baked pumpernickel bread.

Taste: Delicious! Tons of roasted malt, imparting a slight smokiness, some notes of coffee, brown sugar, and some subtle hops.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied to slightly chewy, and very smooth, as there is hardly any carbonation what-so-ever. With an ABV of 7.2%, there is no alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is a damn good porter. Nice roasty flavors, balanced with some good sweetness. If you’re a porter fan, you should definitely try it. I’ll certainly keep it as one of my house porters!

Thin light brown head lays atop a dark body that looks black until held to the light.

Smoke, roast, toast, cherry, plum, and chocolate.

Medium body and carbonation.

Pretty solid porter.
