4.1/5  rDev +6.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Presentation: Green 1 pint .9 fl. oz. Old fashioned medicine style bottle with a quick blurb about the beer on the back label as well as a “best before” date.

Appearance: Nearly black in colour, more of a extremely dark brown, and still holding some ruby highlights. Pours rich creamy tan lace that leaves trail of web like stickiness.

Smell: Dark unsweetened chocolate or carob, light musty buttery yeast nose, lemony twang from the hops and some charcoal tie things up in the aroma.

Taste: Strong medium body, sturdy smoothness and a dryish mouth feel. Carbonation is mild and very appropriate. In your face coffee and carob flavour with a small and quick yet rounded sweetness. Hop bitterness flares in to a happy medium to bring a perfect balance. Earthy dry. Musty buttery yeast hits middle to end to add a lustful character to this ale, touch of astringentcy towards the end from the roasted malts to stop with a dry finish.

Notes: Old style porter to say the least, A blend of old and new beer. A very well structured beer with lots of flavour going on … a sharp cheddar and whole grain crackers pairs extremely well with this one.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

A: Black with a brown head.

S: Roasty, sweet malt, chocolate, coffee, smells good.

T: Taste is the same, but better. It's very flavorful, and the nose was quite dull, comparatively.

M: Very full bodied. Very smooth.

O: A damn fine porter. This beer made me fall in love with the brewery, and I've tried almost everything of their that I can get my hands on.
