4.53/5 rDev +10.2%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75
A: Very dark opaque brown with a consistent, big, creamy beige head.
S: Hoppy and roastiness coming from the dark malts.
T: Caramel, yellow sugar with a balanced bitterness.
M: The right carbonation that created the creamy head is here as well to perform a fantastic mouthfeel. It goes from sweetness to bitterness once you sip. The palate doesn't even dry but it creates a awesome feeling of freshness after the sip.
O: For my first Porter, I've chosen one that's considered one of the best. It's said that its mouthfeel and inner-mouth behavior is complex but I find it incredibly simple. Minimalisticly simple. For sure, one of the best beers I've ever had.

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.
