2.65/5 rDev -36%
Poured this beer form a 22 oz bomber. Poured black with a brownish head. Left a good collar throughout the glass. To me, this beer had hints of coffee and pine at the same time. The taste was not one of my favorites. I did not enjoy drinking this beer. I am big fan of some of their other beers, but I did not enjoy this beer.

A: A dark brown ale, raises a small head with poor retention. Splotchy lacing.
S: roasty chocolate malts, mild hints of spices.
T: Starts with watery chocolate milk, developing nutmeg and cinnamon on the mid-palate. Initially finishes with an unpleasant rubbing alcohol aftertaste, but as the beer warms that off-flavor seems to subside.
M: Moderate-low carbonation. Finishes with dry, slightly astringent spices.
O: A fairly run-of-the-mill porter. I don't find the spices adding much, but at least they aren't overdone. I was rather worried about the initial off-flavors, but that seems to be remedied by letting the beer warm for 15 minutes.

A - a good bit of orange around the edges. Creamy off-white head.
S - roasted malts with minor dark chocolate in the mix. Hops are also present.
T - certain hop flavor throughout. Mild roasted malts, chocolate and nearly caramel.
M - mild coating, but thin. Tiny bit of tingle on sides of tongue.
D - maybe one, but most likely not.
