Ok...so i really did not know a hell of a lot about this one prior to trying it. I am lucky enough to have a beer store nearby that lets you make your own 6 packs with anything they have in the store. I was in a real porter mood so I picked 6 different porters that i thought would be good. This one comes highly recommended so i figured i'd give it a whirl.
preface- i was hoping for a very traditional malty porter tonight. so when i cracked it open, what did i smell a bunch of? hops!....hmm that's odd i thought. after some sniffs, i rolled it in the mouth, sucked it down, and what did i taste? monster hops! whoa! this took me by surprise! now if i would have done some research i would have known what to expect. very cold...very hoppy...as it warmed, settled down a little. i like it, just threw me for a loop.
so if you are in the mood for a hoppy but balanced porter, this is great. if you are a malty man (or woman)...maybe rethink this. for me it was if troegs took hopback and dead reckoning stuck it in a room together, put on some wacka wacka bow chicka bow wow music and this beer was birthed. sound weird?? maybe...but i get it

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.
