4.28/5 rDev +4.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a nonic glass.
A: Opaque dark brown showing scant light transmission around the edges with over one finger of light beige foam head. Light lacing remains on the glass.
S: Roast is fairly intense, with chocolate, charcoal, lesser dark fruit, and a slightly scorched edge.
T: Begins almost dry, with dark chocolate and refined roasted grain. A thread of dried fruit also emerges before the moderately acidic transition into the middle. Sulfur is a bit too strong here, suggesting some out of place dimethyl sulfide, but not really detracting. More chocolate is present in the finish, alongside aromatic green hops that only yield mild bitterness.
M: Thin to medium viscosity, creamy but slightly astringent on the palate, with moderate carbonation.
D/O: Surprisingly flavorful for a 5% abv porter, this dark contribution from Odell is mostly masterful. As good as the flavor is, it takes a few unexpected turns with detectable acidity and possible off-qualities of fermentation. Not a perfect example of the style, but there are some serious flashes of brilliance demonstrated here.

A - Dark brown, with 1 finger of head and lots of sticky lace left on the glass. Perfect looking Porter
A- Smoked dark brown malts. Oaky notes
