Poured from a 22 oz bomber

Pours a deep dark brown with some reddish hues when held up to light. Tan creamy head which dissipated much too quickly for my liking.

Big chocolate aroma with roasted malts dominating the nose.

Expected more flavor and body up front. Much lighter than the look and smell would suggest. Chocolate from the nose really comes through in the end. Not too complex, very easy to drink.

Nothing remarkable here, a good porter, and I'd probably crack another bomber seeing that it's a smooth sipper. Think I may have been wanting something a bit heartier after shoveling a foot of snow in below zero wind chills though.

Very dark brown; shows red highlights when held to a light. A tight thin cream colored head leaving only trace amounts of lace.

Scent is very smoky, roasted and charred with bitter dark chocolate.

Taste follows the nose - strong roasted and slightly charred notes. Delightfully smoky. Touch of bitter dark chocolate. An almost tobacco like note. Light earthy hops. Cold strong coffee.

Mouth is a lightly carbonated medium.

A very good porter.

A - A very slight dark khaki colored head with almost zero retention that gives way to a lopsided yet mostly full lacing and a very thin collar... A decent bit of sluggish small bubbled carbonation is seen towards the bottom of the glass before it fades into the abyss... The color is a flat black that definitely lets a bit of light leak in around the edges...

S - Textbook American Porter here... Chocolate and cocoa... Lightly roasted malts... Some mild coffee... NOt bad, but a bit of a limited potency overall...

T - A rather subdued palette... The chocolate and cocoa are most prominent flavors but are still a bit muted overall... There is also some roasted malts... The coffee from the nose never materializes on the palette...

M - Medium bodied... A bit on the thin side of the equation... Briskly carbonation... Dense... Doesn't quite engulf the full mouth... Slightly chalky in texture...

D - A simple but rather unremarkable porter... Far from a drain pour, but not a brew that I would necessarily seek out again and certainly one not worth recommending...

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A - Pours charcoal colored with a heavy brown foam. Minimal lacing.

S - Malty scent with notes of toffee and chocolate. Hearty aromsa.

T - Decent flavor of malt, and cocoa. Could use a bit more bite at the end; I found it a little thin.

M - Decent drinker, slightly watered down, but it is a good porter to have a few and feel like you ate a multi-course meal.

O - Decent porter, but not something I'd actively seek.

Poured from a 22oz bomber into a pint glass, the beer pours an almost black coloring with slight ruby highlights under the light. The beer has a massive, two and a half inch head that is dense, small bubbled, and a creamy consistency, tan coloring. Looks delicious. The nose is rich and enticing, with a slight background of coffee and a ton of milk chocolate sweetness. There are a lot more carbonation bubbles along the glass than you usually see with a Porter. The beer is light and crisp in mouth, and the carbonation keeps the flavors from becoming cloying or overpowering. The palate is a heavy dose of dark roasted coffee, with some dark, bitter chocolate and a light hopping to dry and clean up the flavors. No cling along the glass, which goes with the lighter body. The aftertaste was bitter, and slightly towards the mocha end of the taste spectrum. The finish is quick and slightly drying from all the bitter aspects. Very tasty brew. Lighter than my preferences, but very good nonetheless.
