22oz bomber into a wicked weed snifter. batch #45 so this is from about 11 months ago.

pours a dark black with a nice inch thick brown head. smell jumps out at you right away even though its still a bit cold... roasty malts are very aromatic as well as hints of toffee. taste is very bold and a bit hoppy, especially for a porter. i get a lot of sweet chocolate and coffee. finishes sweet and dry and with a pretty big mouthfeel for a porter. damn good honestly. carbonation is perfect and drinkability is high.

overall highly exceeded expectations, even for spiteful which i have had nothing but good experiences with in the past. terrific for style!

Black body, ample rising tan foam, leaves behind some spindly lace.

Roasty rich coffee aroma, nice. Possibly some unique character from the Simcoe, hard to tell.

Bitter and roasty flavors of black malt, dry coffee, nutty almond and chicory. Finish is very dry and moderately bitter, not much hop flavor just bitterness. Medium bodied and smooth. A tasty porter brewed with English Amber malt and American Simcoe hops. Well balanced and drinkable, considering the higher abv.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours with a medium to above average thickness. About three to four fingers of creamy head on the pour. Settled slightly but was very present while drinking. Pitch black appearance in the glass.

Smell: The dark simcoe hops hit right away. Sweet roasted malt and barley are present in the body. The dark fruits and malt keep coming back in waves. The hop accents in this brew is surprisingly refreshing.

Taste: Like the aroma, the hop presence hits right away. Again surprisingly floral and bright for a porter. Sugary malty body mixes very well with the hops. Waves of complexity keep coming over the palette long after drinking. The finish is on the lighter side, some syrupy malt texture stays behind.

Mouthfeel: Light but very refreshing. Some nice malt texture left behind.

Overall: A really excellent porter. Almost drinks like a black IPA, but the sweet malt accents keep it grounded as a porter. I'm usually not a huge fan of this much hop presence in a porter, but this one was very well done.
