3.44/5  rDev -8.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

appearance: Dark brown, nearly opaque, noteworthy billowy tan head with swaths of messy lacing.
smell: Solid chocolate nose, simple, not much depth or richness.
taste: Solid again. Tasty, but a bit of an odd aftertaste. Can't put a finger on it.
mouthfeel: full and creamy.
overall: A good not great Porter. Glad I tried it.

A: Dark brown with an off white head

S: getting lots of aroma; mainly Coffee, toffee, cocoa, and licorice....and maybe even some butterscotch

T: Wow, nice sweetness and mild bitterness. Bitterness definitely doesn't linger too much. Nice roasted malts and mild coffee flavor.

M: feels more carbonated than I had expected

O: one of the better porters I've had

This porter pours exceptionally dark, not giving in anyway to light. There's decent retention of a small 1 finger head. This porter features roasted malt in a big way. The nose is dominated by a smoky roast and American ale yeast. The taste follows closely: roasted grains, chocolate, earthy hops, nutty yeast. The mouthfeel is a bit thin for my taste, but it is well-carbonated. Overall, very nice and very roast forward.

22 oz bottle, no date.

appears opaque black in color, 1/2" thick creamy head, decent head retention. aroma is a bit like toasted marshmellow, bittersweet chocolate.

taste is a bit smokey, roasty, with some bitter cocoa. medium thickness, medium carbonation.

overall - a solid porter. great to pair with porkchops.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Great big dark brown coloration, nice beige head that's big and laces nice.

S - Coffee, dark chocolate. There's nothing milky here. It's like smelling pure coffee or cocoa beans. Great. Bordering on robust but not quite.

T - Pretty big flavors. Dark chocolate, bold East African coffee, raisins, prunes, with a big beery after bite.

M - Medium to full bodied. I think the carbonation could be toned down a little here. Nothing to complain about thought. Dry, resinous aftertaste on the tongue. Nice.

D - A good beer. Nice to see a brewery from the home state making a name for themselves with so many quality releases. You can taste the inspiration of Cape Cod in this one. There's a nice Cape breeze and brininess to this beer. It's a dark beer you'd be bound to drink at a beach at a clambake. I appreciate that.

This dark black beer pours from the bottle, slightly syrupy and creates a thick dark tan head, almost 2 inches thick. The color is very dense and black. The aromas on the nose are of dark roasted coffee, dark chocolate, and a hint of vanilla. My first taste is very thick and dense in the mouth. With favors of coffee, dark malt, and bittersweet chocolate. A slight bitterness clears the palette for the next taste. A very strong flavored beer that would need strong foods to withstand the strong flavors. Barbeque and steaks come to mind.

Poured from bomber bottle, it is pitch black with tan head, that fades to ¼ inch.

Aromas of dark roasted malt, cocoa, nutty chocolate, with dark fruit and a hint of tobacco coming in at mid bottle. Hops come through very fleetingly.

Taste is smooth, slightly creamy and somewhat exotic with all the richness in there. Hops are hardly present. A very good porter. Easy to quaff, despite its 7% abv.

Pours dark brown, becoming black in the glass with a modest chestnut froth that lasts a few minutes, depositing rings of lace on a tulip glass.

Rich roasted malt almost has a burnt quality. Black coffee and baker’s chocolate are more prominent than a background of brown sugar.

Dark roasted malt as expected is just over the threshold of burnt. This has a nice play between bitter and sweet malt. The finish is mild with a quality of blackened steak.

A light to medium body with smooth texture and light, prickly carbonation. There is no hint of alcohol.

Moor Porter is an easy drinking beer, almost dangerously, given its 7% ABV. Sit back and enjoy a pint with friends.

Had on tap at New World Tavern--Plymouth--served into a pint glass

Appearance: dark brown in color, 1/4 inch head, opaque, moderate carbonation, nice lacing--really beautiful pour

Smell: roasted malt, sweet and dark chocolate

Taste: follows the nose with chocolaty notes

Mouthfeel: medium bodied, moderate carbonation, sweet with a solidly bitter backbone.

Overall: This is an above average to good porter. A smooth sipper but not one that blew me away. I would have this again but there are others I would get first.
