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

Dark brown pour with tan head and decent lacing. The nose is all roasted malt and coffee with just a hint of hops. The palate follows the nose with hints of caramel and piney hops. The chocolate and hops come on stronger as the beer warms. I really like this, I'm not a huge porter guy so the hops cutting through the finish makes this much more enjoyable

New World Porter – Porter (6.7%) - Avery Brewing Co. (Colorado)
☆☆☆

App: Pours a very dark mahogany brown with hints of red in different light. Two finger khaki head settles to a rocky half finger retention with tons of lacing up the the glass.

Smell: Deep roasted aromas with hints of meatiness and chocolate. Ever so slight volatility, and a very basic and reclusive hops aroma. Not super strong on aroma.

Taste: Some light roasted flavors on the foretaste, expanding in to a formidable bitterness that seems to arise from both the assertive hops and the dark malts. Slightly acrid in true taste. Very dry. Aftertaste is bitter with some very deep roasted flavors commingling with the hops acidity. Not really a whole lot going on. Has a pretty unpleasant alcoholic aftertaste.

Mouth: Solidly medium bodied, but deep malts and high levels of hops make this beer seem dryer than it actually is. Because of this, perceived as thinner bodied as well. Carb is solid.

Home tasting, 12oz bottle into Tulip. 2/6/14.

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

A crisp clear cola colour. Minimal head quickly migrates to the edges. decent lacing.

Smells starts out with typical porter notes: roast bordering on char, chocolate, a little sweet. There's something juicy about it, too, which I know is the hops, but if I hadn't had this before might be difficult to pin down.

The taste deviates from the smell primarily in the presence of the hops: they are big bold and in front. For this reason, I think of this is more of a black IPA/CDA than the porter as which it is advertised. Citrus and cocoa/coffee give way to an almost piney twang... it's hard to pick out specifics from the hops as they blend so naturally with the bitter chocolate and char.
The finish is all about those hops, too, but smoothe enough to not distract.
The first time I had this beer I was just getting into craft beer, and was a big porter/stout fan who didn't like hops very much. I went in expecting a traditional porter. I did not like this beer then. Now, several years later, knowing what to expect and with a further experienced palate, I can appreciate the well built brew that sits in front of me. Go in knowing what it is and you will probably enjoy it. Go in expecting mellow soft and roasty and you will be disappointed.

Serving type: nitro-bottle
