4/5 rDev +2.8%
Poured from the can into my Delirium tulip.
Appeared a dark brown color with an off white head. Impossible to see through but very bubbly in appearance.
Smelled of roasted malts and a touch of vanilla cream.
Taste was subtle yet tasty. Nice dark chocolate notes.
Not overly sweet - pretty subtle flavors. Definitely a very drinkable and tasty porter. Was surprised by how much I enjoyed this one.

A: Thick opaque black ale w/ 3 fingers of creamy golden brown head. Leaves thick fluffy lacing w/ a thick pillow of head retention. Great looking brew.
S: Dark chocolate and smokey flavors hit you at first. A little bit of anise in there. Smell reminds me of chocolate croissants fresh out of the oven. Roasted bittersweet chocolate with a hint of nuts also.
T: Smooth roasted chocolate croissant flavor with a hint of coffee and roasted macadamia nuts. A bit of tanginess in the middle that finishes slightly bittersweet and chocolatey.
M: Full bodied creamy beer. w/ lots of roasted flavors. No real fizz more creamy.
O: Solid porter that is sweet but not to sweet or overly bittersweet. Nice balance of chocolate and roasted notes.

Pouring a cellar temp can into a snifter. THe beer pours a rich deep brown color with frothy beige head of 3 cm foaming up on a gentle pour.
The head recedes slowly during the sampling with tightly packed lattice and some wispy islands by midway point.
Aroma is roasted malt and some brown sugar sweetness. I also get a little earthy hop note mixed in on the nose, but this is a malt driven brew I think.
First sip reveals an average body and fine fizzy carbonation. The texture is smooth and coating on my palate. Nice physical beer.
Flavor is sweet chocolate malt with just a bit of roasted notes and again a little earthy hop. The finish is all roast and lingers after each sip. My tongue tingles from the carbonation too.
Overall a nice drinking beer that feels good and is tasty too. I like this porter and will pick it up again to take out to folks and introduce them to a nice CT made beer.

A really nice porter from BE. Nice Malty flavors without much roast. A subtle nuttiness and nice light mouthfeel. A style that can sometime go too heavy, this one stays in check and suits multi rounds and as they describe can pair well with many pub style meals. My favorite from BE, hands down!
