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!!!

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.

Wow, this is a strange brew. It's like a cross between a porter and an IPA, but not just in a Black IPA sort of way. Appearance is nice -- very dark brown with hints of ruby and a light tan head that sees good retention and lacing. But the first major impression is the smell, which is utterly dank and hoppy. This was a big surprise from a beer billing itself as a porter. But there's also a confusing mention of being a Black IPA on the bottle.

Anyway, initially the flavor profile is really strange. You get that inky/roasty/burnt porter profile paired with stiff, dank, swampy hops -- all in one note. Bitterness comes not only from the hops, but also from really dark malts (possibly black patent) that also bring an ashy flavor to the table. It's almost a little off-putting at first, but it grows on you as the flavors mellow and meld.

Mouthfeel is bit thin for a "porter" but there's a very nice, long, dry finish.

Overall, this probably isn't my cup of tea, but I'm glad to have tried it. I'll stick with porters a little on the sweeter side.

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

New World Porter pours a large coffee and cream colored head that is dense and thick. It has great retention, becoming rocky as it settles, and leaves heavy lacing. Body is about as dark as brown can get, almost black. Aroma has roasted dark chocolate, coffee, and piney hops. A small touch of citrusy hops as well.

Taste starts with bitter roasted dark chocolate, then coffee with grapefruit and lemon, with a piney and slightly herbal hop finish, with a hint of vanilla. Roasty and piney aftertaste. Feel is maybe just a tad light for the style, with expected carbonation, great creamy feel.

Wow, I had high hopes for this one, and my hopes were far exceeded. This is the best Hoppy Porter/ Black IPA/ American Black Ale (whatever you wanna call it) I have ever had, easily surpassing Sublimely Self-Righteous (which is a great beer in its own right).
