look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5
On tap in a pint glass.
A - nice solid black brew with a fluffy tan head that resolves after 5 min with a fair amount of lacing.
S- nose is a bit subdued, with a hint of breach malt as the primary character
T - very nice chocolate malt dominates and endures. Not much for hops and only a hint of bitterness. Seems really well balanced.
M - mid range on the tongue hint of carbonation and a hint of heaviness - nice balance between the two
D - shockingly drinkable - could put down a bunch of these
Very nice beer - solid and delicious.
Serving type: on-tap

3.56/5 rDev -13.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Finger worth of head on the pour which settled in to the edges of the glass while drinking. Above average active carbonation for the style. Some sticky lacing left behind.
Smell: Mossy hops mesh well with a bright malt sweetness. Espresso notes with some dark chocolate bitterness. There is an amber malt, toffee like sweetness on the body. A familiar yeast profile of Anchor beers shows up and adds a unique layer for a porter.
Taste: Toffee, Oats, and a unique yeast brightness really blasts on the front. Mossy hops and untamed oak opens up on the body. The finish is just the body slowly dying out with hits on oak and toffee popping up occasionally.
Mouthfeel: Much brighter and active on the palate then I expected. Carbonation fits. Some coffee ground dryness is left behind.
Overall: This was really something different. I expected the stout-ish porter that some many brewers are making but this is tough to really put a finger on. Odd but worth a shot.
