4.38/5 rDev +13.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
Appearance: Pours a reddish-mahogany with three fingers of light tan head. The head subsides slowly, but leaves tons of lacing.
Smell: Chocolate and sweet, dark fruits. A hop presence is definitely noticeable. Some citrus in the background.
Taste: A blend of roasted malts, dark chocolate, dark fruits, and alcohol. The hops are there, but come through mostly in the aftertaste. This is one of the most balanced beers I have ever tasted. All of the flavors are noticeable, but none overpower the other. There is an undercurrent of dark chocolate throughout, and the hops don't show up until the aftertaste, preventing this from tasting like a dark IPA. The roasted malts combined with the dark fruits are the first flavor to hit the tongue, but they combine with each other beautifully. This is an outstanding porter.
Mouthfeel: Nice and creamy, with good carbonation.
Drinkability: Wow. The alcohol is present in the taste, but it tastes so good that it's easy to drink quickly. This is a great porter, and is a perfect example of a balanced beer. No one flavor dominates, but all combine together beautifully.

4.39/5 rDev +13.7%

Poured into a Libby Poter/Stout glass.
A - Extremely dark brown to black body. 1 Finger head that is a dark orange/creamy caramel color. Head dissipates after about a minute and leaves splotchy lacing that is still active with bubbles and a large amount of lacing around the edge of the glass.
S - Light caramel, cooked orange , coffee, butter, vanilla, creamy, reminds me of a stout smell more than a porter, along the lines of a guiness. Hints of hops.
T - Starts incredibly creamy, once again reminded me of a guiness, but it followed with a spiciness like pepper and orange rind. Ends with moderate coffee and hop notes. Really nice flavor.
M - Starts off very full and rich, which I enjoy. Turns into mild acid, but is always accompanied by a creamy and bubbly lacing.
O - A very, very good beer, and one of the best porters I've ever had. I bought this beer from one of my favorite places because it was on sale. I was not expecting something this great for how much I paid for it, and I might go back and grab some more that were on sale.
