Picked up a fresh bottle of this in Jersey, it says it's a black IPA/porter

New World Porter spurts out the bottle brownish black looking quite nice in the glass. About an inch up of tannish light brown foam that's kinda full, semi stick. Smell is bright earthy hops on top of some chocollate that's more like cocco, roasted malt and a kinda English like yeast as well. Tasting this is kinda great, it exceeds expectations. Tastes of cocco, roast(slight), a nice earthy hop with some pine and semi citrus. This is a great twist black IPA porter, I can disern between the two, a great mix. Some nuts and a sharp hoppy finish. Feel is less than medium with a nice bitey carb that works. If I can find this fresh, it's good for a sixer.

12 ounce bottle, bottled 11/6/2010. Pours crystal clear dark brown color with a nice dense 2-3 fingers of tan head with amazing retention that reduces to a lacing cap. Some nice lacing clinging to the glass as well. Aromas of caramel, roasted malt, light chocolate, bread, citrus, and spicy hops. Some decent aromas with good strength. Taste of big chocolate, caramel, roasted malt, bitter coffee, molasses, light citrus, and spicy hops. Decent amount of bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, chocolate, citrus, and spicy hops. Medium carbonation and body; with a nice and fairly creamy mouthfeel. No alcohol noticed other than a slight warming after the finish. Great balance of roasted flavors and hop character. Overall this is a very nice robust porter. I am pretty impressed on how well this has held a nice hop character after an entire year.

On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC.

Poured a deep black hue with a two finger frothy tan head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a light burnt grain and a strong citric hop.

The taste consisted of some dry roasted coffee, some smoke and a fresh citric hop.

The mouthfeel was toward the fuller side of the style.

Overall a tasty and well hopped porter.

A: Poured a near opaque mahogany red with a thin sudsy dark khaki head.

S: Chinook hopping provided pungent dry grapefruit and pine hopping.

T: malty, dark roasted coffee backed with a huge grapefruit and pine hopping. The flavor was clean, fading quickly after the swallow. There was some dark chocolate, dried citrus and a very rich roasted backing of bitter black coffee.

M: moderately full, oily with a warm roasted nature, and softly carbonated that made for a pleasant experience. There was a dry pungent grapefruit lacing on the finish.

D: very good, a nice coffee roasted lacing provides for a outstanding flavor and great experience.

You can tell this f'er is dry hopped to an extreme. It smells more like a Bigfoot than any porter I've had. I'm guessing bigtime Centennials dry hopping. The beer looks very nice. Dark ruby and a wonderful, thick light brown colored head sits on top. Shows great retention and lacing. I'm having a hard time getting into this porter. Usually I like a highly hopped porter (SN, Rogue, Summit, etc,), but this one goes overboard. The porter qualities aren't allowed to come through much. Just the barleywine type of hopping. Very little roastedness or coffee-like tones. This is not a bad beer. Just a pretty average but unique porter.

One of the cooler new style porters, rich, beige head, brown pour, substantial presence. Aroma was nuttier like a brown ale.

Lots of cascade hops in this one. A real good hoppy porter. Alcohol comes off tame, the hops and carbonation make it an easier drinking porter. Still has a decent amont of chewiness to it throughout. Me likeee.

A - black with some red around the edges; big, thick, cap of soft, dense, brown head that has decent retention

S - citrus, grapefruit, spicy hops, some peppery spice, faint chocolate

T - big citrus, orange, grapefruit, some mild peppery spiciness, chocolaty malts, some mild caramel and burnt sugar notes

M - medium bodied, well carbonated

The bottle claims "A Pioneer Black IPA". They're probably right. This is definitely more than a porter. The hops are really intense, but not overly bitter. The malts balance well with the hops. The overall drinkability is tremendous. I could drink a lot of this. It's definitely well worth finding and trying.

A black/deep ruby pour produced a minimal off-brown head, a bit clumpy, yet it lace pretty thin.
Coffee, chocolate and anise dominate the aroma, a bit musty.
An Ovaltine chocolate flavor comes through in the taste. Coffee and dark raisins are also present. Moves to a slightly tart finish, yet still pretty clean. To note: this was my third dark beer of the day (one stout, one Belgian dark), so my buds may have been a bit tainted.

A quite deep garnet to brown color, the head spumous in texture, prodigious in size, the lace massive sheets that cling strongly to the glass, both a light chocolate color. Nose is caramel, hop floral and a light bittersweet chocolate sweetness also present. Start is ambrosial; top is middling in mouth feel. Finish is perky in its carbonation, rigorously hopped, droughty malt aftertaste. Avery makes some fine brews if you not tried them, well worth the effort to find and sample.

Thanks for sharing Mike!

12 oz bottle served in a snifter.
Poured very dark mahogany with nice reddish highlights when held in strong light. Moderately durable tan head is creamy soft. Decent, spotty lacing.

Aroma: Features orange and chocolate over a roasted malt base that was less strong than expected.

The flavor is a bit richer and stronger than the aroma suggests even though the chocolate component is less pronounced than expected. Some herbal/grassy notes step in, and there are hints of coffee, burnt toast and smoke in the mild-moderately bitter finish and aftertaste.

Medium body, exceptionally smooth, well carbonated, but a touch watery.

O: Not really a porter but rather a bit of a hybrid, hopped up "New World Porter". Good effort but falls short of a seamless hybridization. Does fit with BA Style = American Black Ale.

Pours a super dark molasses colored brown. Great two finger, tan head, that leaves some awesome Brussels lacing . Nice filmy foam after a couple of sips. Super roasted bread malts with a little watery coffee and soft chocolate aromas. The taste starts with dark roasted malts and some roasted walnuts. The middle gets a strong flash of gypsum dryness in the palate added to some dry chocolate malts. The finish is bitter charred malst and light hops. Smooth yet dry palate make for a easy drinking porter.

Draught shaker, the New World Porter is a dark blackish brown with a small, super tight tan head that is long lasting and leaves thick, creamy foam lace.
Served ice cold, even after 30+ mins, the smell was very muted, lightly sweet malt.

Taste is pretty average strong porter, rich and malty with a bit of char and a boozy, dry finish.

Mouthfeel is very smooth, with a heavier viscosity.

Drinkability is average, again, just a generic strong American porter. I understand this one has a great hop character when fresh (November), but by March, even under pressure and kept way too cold, it's muted.

The colour is dark brown, almost black. The liquid is clear. The three finger head slowly sinks sown to an uneven lid leaving lots of lacing.

The smell is dry and roasted with luxurious notes of sweet coffee, almonds, toffee and nuts. Some dark chocolate and a bitter-sour note of herbs and plants.

The taste is sweet-sour-bitter with a fine blend of bitter hops and sourish malty flavours. Some fresh grounded coffee, dark chocolate, mocha cream and sweet notes of cookies and a touch of dough. The aftertaste is a bit dry with lots of roasted notes and a hint of burned malt (rubber, coal). The finish is creamy with dry roasted flavours.

The carbonation is strong, the small bubbles almost sharp. The liquid is smooth and a little thick.

I found this an elegant well-hopped American porter that doesn't forget about drinkability.

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a brown color and a mostly cloudy consistency. There was a quarter inch of foamy, long-lasting head and good lacing.

S: Aroma of hops, malt and coffee.

T: Tasted of roasted malt, a decent amount of hops (more than I would've thought) and coffee. A solid, flavorful taste.

M: A good amount of carbonation and a dry finish. Medium-bodied.

D: A nice, drinkable, wel-made porter.
