look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Rich brown almost black until held to light. Creamy tan head drops to a small cap with a chunky collar. Decent retention. Notches of lacing. Smooth pour.

Smell: Solidly roasted with a bunch of chocolate. Dark and milk chocolate coupled with some roasted malt sweetness. Solid hop presence pushes some oily pine and citrus. Almost phenolic with some alcohol. Some grass and a touch of char. Some smoke and a ton of deeply cooked malts. Wheat is overpowered.

Taste: Roasted chocolate and coffee beans. Very faint old coffee. Milk chocolate sweetness layered through the back. A good punch of cocoa and some bitter dark chocolate. Hops push a touch of pine needle bitterness and some citrus. A bit of dark fruit coupled with a slight grassy and herbal thing. Slight alcohol heat and a very slight hint of wheat as it warms. Crazy amounts of cocoa. Herbal finish.

Mouthfeel: Nice and smooth with a medium leaning toward full body. Moderate carbonation with a relatively clean finish.

Overall: There are better positions.

An unabashed hoppy porter. Loses a little in the long run as the hops dominate some of the more subtle malt flavors. Solid.

bomber into a nonic. batch #14.

a - pours a murky, dark brown with a finger and a half of rocky, light brown head. after calming, i'm left with a thin cap and thick rings of lacing in the glass.

s - dark chocolate, wheat bread, faint molasses.

t - big dark chocolate flavor with a bready backbone, reminiscent of fresh pumpernickel. has a faint spiciness underlying the chocolate and a noticeably boozy kick in the finish. hop presence doesn't really come out til the beers warms up a bit, then exhibits a subdued, earthy character.

m - medium in body, though lighter than expected presumably from the wheat content. adequate carbonation though the co2 profile is on the coarse side.

o - tasty and enjoyable, especially once it warms up. this is a nice take on the style while keeping most of of the characteristics i expect in a porter. Would certainly buy this again.
