A- pours a chocolate colored brown with deep ruby hues. Two fingers of tightly bubbles head crown the brew. Very good retention with lacing as well.

S- pungent hop aromas of hop oil, hemp and grapefruit rind hit the nose at first. Semi-sweet chocolate, caramel and chocolate malt blend in the middle. Finishes with a chocolate covers orange characteristic.

T- Gourmet chocolate, light roast coffee and slightly sweet chocolate malt hit the palate at first. Juicy grapefruit, tropical fruit and orange peel soon coalesce with initial malt burst. Finishes with a leafy resiny hop flavor and delicate chocolate characteristics that linger forever.

MF- slick round mouthfeel with a light medium body and great effervescent carbonation.

D- extremely drinkable.

Overall an excellent hoppy porter/black(brown) IPA.

A: dark dark brown with a thin tan head that sticks to the side as you chugg :)
S: rousted coffee with a grassy hoppyness very interesting
T: the coffee comes through nicely and then a nice earthy hop bitterness there at the end
M: decent carbonation, drinks like an ipa but backed up by malty porter goodness
O: a winner in my book, it like the out of bounds stout but with more of a hoppy kick at the end i went out on a limb here andpicked up a whole sixer and im sure glad i did

Note: This review was a re-post from my former account, jmkratt, which was hacked and I lost all my reviews...sorry for the redundancy.

Poured from bottle to Sam Adams Perfect Pint Glass.

Pours a deep dark brown/mahogany color with a nice think head with great retention and thick lacing.

First thought was wow! Hops in a porter! Aroma is nice, not too overwhelming but noticeable sweet citrus hop tones along with the roasted malts and coffee.

Excellent pine and ctirus hops upfront which mesh with the roasted malty flavors that follow. Well balanced and smooth.

I really enjoyed how full the body was to complement the flavor.

This is one of the easiest drinking porters I have ever had. Granted it also lends itself very close to my favorite style of beer but this is damn fine beer.

Avery New World Porter: This is beer review #100, and close to my one year anniversary reviewing brews on Beer Advocate. I was planning to stop at 100, but given that there are a few bottles in the fridge I have yet to sample, the reviews will continue into the triple digits. What I have learned in my year of beer variety: try different beer styles! I eased my way into dark beers with a few porters, a stout or two, and by the time I got to a Russian Imperial Stout, I was a big fan. After a few, a new style of beer may grow on you, and even become a favorite. Also, stick with the highly rated beers on Beer Advocate and you will have a higher percentage of memorable evenings!
But back to the Avery New World Porter. Porters tend to be more consistent than other styles, but the New World Porter has a slight edge. It pours with a black body, tan fluffy head and mellow aroma of malts. The flavor is very smooth throughout with a bit of bitter toward the finish. I think the New World is nicely balanced, with good Porter roast malt flavor that does not overpower, and I like the subtle hops that come through at the end. A few of these could go down on an evening when you are in the mood for a porter or a mellow stout.

This is more of a black ipa than a traditional porter(although knew that before trying since it was on the bottle). Dark but not black with a lot of hops, a lot more than traditionalporters. A really solid beer from one of my favorite breweries. This is only seasonal and I will definitely look for it again.

First off, I'll start off by saying this is a Black IPA. If you're seeking a traditional porter, this isn't it. I've had this one before, and was always confused how this is a porter, but it is what it is.

12oz bottle poured into a snifter. Pours black, decent off white head, lacing, and retention. Lots of pine up front, there's no doubt this is a hoppy one. Very dank for a "porter". Fresh pine and lemon dominate, along with roasted chocolate. There are porter qualities to this one, but it screams Black IPA all the way. Sharp bitter hops dominate the flavors. More chocolate on the burnt side. There's also a nice touch of pine resin, which adds to the mouthfeel. This one's very thick, heavy, and smooth, well carbonated. Very easy to drink.. not too much to complain about besides it barely fitting the porter category.

If you like Black IPAs, this is a must. Like I said, if you're seeking a traditional porter, you might be disappointed. But, at the end of the day, this is a pretty tasty brew.
