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.

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.

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.

really nice color- almost a transparent dark mahogany with a creamy film of sudsy tan on top.
smells very hoppy! I prefer my porters more traditional than this and I am beginning to feel about all the Avery beers as I do sam adams- they are all very similar. sam adams makes different styles, but they all taste the same. almost the same here with Avery.
2nd pour produces a two finger layer of beautiful head! beautiful head!!! tiny micro bubbles almost layered underneath the creamy tan on top. very pretty brew!
tasting the malts, kind of roasted. some chocolate/cocoa. a little bit of caramel. hop bitter on the sides of the tongue as it finishes. very nice taste; the malt to hop ratio is very balanced and the brew is enjoyable.
overall, it's good! i'm a little apprehensive in grouping Avery with sam adams but I do see a similarity in many of their beers. and I love the label on this one!!!

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

A: Pours a clear but opaque very dark brown (just shy of black) in color with very light amounts of gentle visible carbonation along the surface of the beer and some very dark amber + cola brown highlights. The beer has a two finger tall dense foamy tan head that slowly reduces to couple of medium sized thick patches surrounded by a very thin film covering the majority of the remainder of the surface of the beer and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of roasted malts with lighter notes of citrus/grapefruit pith and pine hops.

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of roasted malts with notes of chocolate and coffee. That is followed by light flavors of citrus/grapefruit pith and pine hops which impart a light amount of bitterness which lingers slightly.

M: Medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Smooth with moderate amounts of dryness.

O: Easy to drink and enjoyable with a well hidden alcohol making it quite easy to enjoy. Very well balanced, I think of this more of a porter (than an American Black Ale) with some light to moderate hop presence.
