3.83/5 rDev -0.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Pours dark brown with a smallish head and not much lacing.
Smells like roast coffee and malt mingled with some earthy hops.
The taste is like a darker brown ale that is balanced with no particular flavor dominating the palate. The malts are not bitter and there is not much sweetness unlike the O'so Night Train porter that I just rated which leaned more to the sweet espresso stout side of things. This is more true to style but not spectacular. Some dry cocoa powder as well.
The mouthfeel is medium and carbonation is light.
Overall it is a decent porter which is one of my favorite styles. A good dark beer for summer sipping.
