2.65/5  rDev -21.8%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance is off at a purple-charcoal-brown body with deep fuscia hues. Thin tan lace. Invisible carbonation.

Aroma is one dimensional – just sweet coffee malt.

Taste is coffee and sweet blackberries. Both flavors are on the light side. There are suggestions of caramel but nothing more.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, generally dull with a blistering carbonation bite at the end.

Drinkability: Easy to drink but too boring to be worth the time. Not enjoyed.

Serving type: on-tap

4.13/5  rDev +21.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours from the tap a murky black, not unlike what I would imagine the thick blood of a slain troll would look like. A creamy tan head tops this brew.

Smell is clean with a pleasant smoked and roasted malt scent being the predominant character. Enjoyable if a little one-dimensional.

More of this in the finish of the beer but it is lead by a nice sweet caramel flavor that moves into nuttiness on the middle of the tongue. There is a pleasant roasted bitterness after the swallow that lingers while the sweetness stays in the mouth to balance thanks to the slightly creamy mouth feel.

Overall, a nice example of a porter that I really enjoyed.

Serving type: on-tap
