4.18/5 rDev +8.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
Poured from a growler I got at the General Store.
A- Very, very dark brown coffee color as I'd expect from a Porter. Nice head that didn't last too long. Very little lacing.
S- Mostly coffee with a bit of dark chocolate. Very potent when the growler was opened, a bit less once the beer was poured. However, it retained a nice smell throughout drinking.
T- Smooth, quite carbonated and relatively equal amounts of coffee and dark chocolate.
M- Pretty smooth even with the solid amount of carbonation. Very pleasant initial silkiness that turns to flavorful carbonation.
O- An outstandingly drinkable Porter that is ever bit as good as my personal favorite of the style 3F Topless Wytch. May even be a bit smoother though the flavor isn't quite as potent. May reevaluate my top Baltic as this growler is finished up.

3.83/5 rDev -0.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Deep brown in color showing ruby colors when light appears. Poured with very minimal head.
Roasty with chocolate and vanilla aromas. Hints of coffee and dark fruits lie behind the roasted malts. Very bready esters as well.
Rich, roasty but simple in character and complexity. Coffee, vanilla, black currant, dark bready grains, bakers chocolate, and some earth.
A bit thin in body and just missing something in the middle to make this a highly drinkable brew for me.
Serving type: on-tap
