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

This is a Black IPA, check the lower right corner of the label.

12oz bottle
no date
oversized wine glass

A- pour fairly aggressive produced a very light tan head about 1 finger high, with apparent carbonation bubbles, head faded within 2min to a thin layer. Very dark brown that is hard to see thru, but under a light it is not murky at all, quite clear in fact.
The bottle name is New World Porter, but off to the side it states it is a Black IPA.

S- chocolate, coffee, malt, some vanilla, citrus and mild hoppiness. Swirled in the glass it is overwhelming citrus, pine and hops.

T- First drink lets you know that this is in fact a Black IPA, lots of citrus and hops up front and continues right to the end, the middle you get a touch of the chocolate that is quite low compared to the smell. Finish is clean, citrus and slightly dry.

M- Smooth, medium body, slight slickness. Little bit of fizziness that fades quickly.

O- The label tells you it is a Black IPA, the name is misleading unless you read the small print. I found it to be pretty good. Not quite as hoppy as some, which I find very nice. I plan on getting more. Solid Black IPA

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

12 oz bottle.

A - Poured into a tulip glass, a dark brownish black with a thin hanging lace.

S - Funk, chocolate, citrus, smoke

T - Nuts, chocolate, smoke, hop bitterness on the finish.

M - Somewhat thin. Viscous.

O - I understand they are trying to stretch boundries, which I respect. The finish and aftertaste is slightly off, but with time I may appreciate it. Draw your own conclusions on this one.

Sampled at Avery's tap room while attending the BA social held there 04/19/14.

Deep brown body with a thin, persistent head. Smell consists of dark roasted grains with cocoa and vanilla. The taste mirrors the aroma. Medium bodied; smooth mouthfeel.

A very respectable porter that isn't overly rich in flavor or feel yet is entirely tasty and drinkable. Satisfying.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Pours opaque very dark brown. The 1/2 inch off-white head quickly fades to a thin film and a ring on top that leaves strands of lace.

The aroma is dominated by grapefruit and faint pine.

The flavor is mostly bitter hops and assorted citrus fruit (mostly grapefruit).

The texture is medium bodied with medium carbonation.

This beer is suffering from a major identity crisis. It is classified here as an American black ale, the name implies that it is a porter and the label describes it as a black IPA. Whatever it is, it is a only a decent one.

look: 3.75 | smell: 2 | taste: 1 | feel: 1.75 | overall: 1.75

This porter had a great appearance when poured. It was a little more carbonated than I preferred.

We could definitely tell the difference of the dry-hopping process. This tasted bitter and very citrusy. Reminiscent of crossing a Shock-top with a porter look.

Not my style, as it claimed to have sweet caramel and chocolate characteristics. All I could taste was citrus and hops.

Will not buy this again.
