Carton is a playful brewer unafraid of flavor. And their pushing flavors rarely seem to backfire as they do for some east coast brewers. They have a good feel for blending, balance, even in a super smokey, in-your-face porter like this one. Bravo!
A: Like all Carton's beers, sharp fresh carbonation, lacing, sticky head, this a a super smoky, hazed porter black-brown. 4
S: Smoke. Hard to know how they make the smokiness pleasant, but they do. Followed by roasty porter grain, sweet malt and balancing hop (grassy, herbal) bitterness. 4.5
T: Follows the smell, would be great with rich foods, indian/asian spicey. Or sweet and sour, or tomato sauce / mexican. 4
MF:As with all craft, there's a weight, a body, and a long finish that showcases the artisan craft. 4
Serving type: bottle

A: A dark brown, not to much transparency, a tiny little head the top that goes away slowly, a good amount of lacing around the glass as drink it.
S: Hints of hazelnut, nutmeg and cinnamon, some sort of dark fruit in there as well, a pleasant nose on this brew.
T: Very earthy beer with a nice hint of hazelnut and some cherry in there as well, a good balanced brew, nice roastyness to it as well.
M: Chewy and thick mouthfeel, good amount of carbonation.
O: Taste a good amount like coffee, well balanced brew with a lot of stuff going on, very good mixture, well brewed.
Serving type: on-tap
