Batch #14
A- The jet black body supports a thick ring of tan foam and gentle bubbles glide up the side of the glas

S- The green earthy pungent hops blend with dark roasted black wheat that has a mellow roasted aroma and some nice dark fruit qualities.

T- The smoky hint and mellow charred black roasted wheat is followed by an earthy hops and a dry roasted flavor lingers just for a moment.

M- The medium-light mouthfeel with no alcohol heat.

O-This beer has nice roasted wheat notes with some earthy hops and a mellow but nice depth flavors thanks to that midnight wheat.

A hoppy wheat porter, sounds good to me. Poured into a tulip glass, it has a murky brownish black with a thin skim of foam on the surface. Doesn't generate much head to speak of.

Light yeast esters in the aroma, some fruity plum, some light roasty malt. Flavors are similarly fruity, roasty, and hoppy. Some light coffee and plum notes, with a firm piney hop bitterness in the finish. Light in feel, light carbonation that seems to ebb away over time. Easy drinking, doesn't feel at all like it's nearly 9% abv. Not over the top on hop additions either, the yeast plays an equal role. Overall a nice beer, would drink again.

Served in an Innis and Gunn cervoise.

The end of my post-bachelor party mini-haul. Get some, I guess. This stuff pours a stark black-brown minorly tinged in auburn and topped by a finger of sandy gray-brown foam. The nose comprises dark-ish chocolate, light grapefruit rind, and an underlying sense of toasted wheat. I guess this makes sense, considering the beer is billed as a hoppy wheat porter. The taste amps up the hop oils a good deal, to the point where they compete with the dark chocolate for who can produce the stronger bitterness. All the while, some soft cocoa sits in the background, minding its own business, providing a vain attempt at balance with its sweetness. This isn't to say the bitterness is overdone, though the finish, which sneaks up and shocks you Shinobi-style (or maybe it'd be more of a Tenchu-style, given the surreptitious nature of the assault), certainly smacks of nothing but. It's a bit much at that point, but it's not so strong for the rest of the proceedings. The body is a strong medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a slightly silky feel. Overall, a pretty nice porter, one that, if nothing else, shows how wheat can be employed in this particular style (gotta love the lightness provided thereby).

3.6/5  rDev -5.3%

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.

Pours deep dark brown with cocoa colored head, minimal retention. Nose is full of green in your face hops. The pine and earth melds with roasted malts and chocolate. Nice combo. Taste starts bitter and hoppy. The roasted profile is tame on the Tate as the hops steal the show. Not getting much in the way of wheat. Floral finish. Mouthfeel is highly carbonated and somewhat prickly. Body is moderate. Overall, this beer is very different. I'm missing the wheat, seems to be overshadowed by the assertive hops.
