look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
355ml bottle poured into pint glass sept21 2010
A thought it was dark as night until I held it to the light where it has a little color at the edges, a gentle pour still gives a massive mocha head that had good retention and leaves some patches of lace
S lots of milk chocolate with some molasses with a little coffee
T chocolates a little darker in the mouth and perhaps some dark fruit or chocolate covered raisin
M fairly full and a little creamy no problems here
D good flavors for a session beer, easy to drink and no real issues with anything, well matched with this chilly evening
I don`t drink enough of this stuff it`s a treat and well priced here in the Calgary the city of summer snow

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.
