look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Very dark (SRM 30) velvety, chocolate brown. A thin, fine, tan head quickly dissipates to a ring, leaving slight lacing on a Dogfish Head snifter.

Sweet malted chocolate with light, coffee liqueur. Warming brings out a roasted malt.

The flavor profile follows the nose, but adds bitter black coffee. Sweetness is present in the background and the finish is short.

Light, prickly carbonation interrupts a medium body. The texture is watery with a hint of alcohol. Warmth brings out a slight astringency.

I’m not sure I would call this robust, but it is easy and enjoyable. Enjoy this Porter with friends and lively conversation or a ball game.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

12 ounce bottle -> snifter

A - dark black pour with a two inch foamy head, some retention and beautiful lacing.

S - subtle but nice nose including chocolate and coffee.

T - raisins, molasses, soy sauce, chocolate, coffee, licorice

S - good carbonation, small aftertaste

O - not a bad porter, but not the best I've ever had either. Worth a taste though for sure.
