Not a porter, but a black IPA. I felt like I was tricked into buying a hoppy beer. I dumped it out, tasted like ass and undrinkable.

Just finished the last growler of the bottom of the keg. Wonderfully hoppy aroma and flavor but no bitter aftertaste. the dry hopping really does come through. Reminds me of a delicious black IPA.

A lot more tart and bright than I had originally expected. There was a fair amount of hops, but it was nicely balanced with a smooth tongue feel. Not too shabby.

Lighter body for a Porter but exceptional flavor.

Tan head with a near black body. The aroma is dominated by floral hops. First taste is of floral hops fading quickly to an excellent balance of roasted malts with some coffee notes. Excellent smooth mouth feel, medium body, leaves a nice aftertaste of roasted malts on the tongue. An outstanding hoppy porter.

Pretty good overall. More alcohol presence on the front end than I normally like but not overwhelming

Poured a fairly dark brown, settled a deep deep brown that was nearly black, left an inch tall light tan head that receded slowly. Left a fair amount of lacing behind.

This doesn't smell like a porter, it smells very hoppy.

Definitely a hoppy porter. I was left with a bit of confusion, earthy grapefruit bitters slowly melded into a roasted coffee malt and then I felt like I was in familiar territory again. Leaves you with a bit of a fruity aftertaste, finished a bit sweet.

Full bodied but leaves quick and clean. Medium-light carbonation. Really would have preferred a more traditional porter, but it wasn't all bad.
