4.1/5  rDev +6.8%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

From the 650 ml. bottle. Sampled on April 7, 2014.

The color is dark brown to near black with some ruby red highlights. Tremendous, soft puffy tan head. Lacing.

The aroma is a montage of sweetness including maple syrup, rich dark roasted malts, vanilla bean, and even a touch of black licorice.

Thin to medium body but quite creamy in texture.

The taste has the same dark malted sweetness as the aroma with the maple playing up big and the vanilla winding it down at the end. Low to moderate bitter finish. Very enjoyable brew as far as I am concerned.

Foley Brothers Brewing - Blackbeard's Porter, poured into a Craftgeer snifter.

Look - Thin viscosity dark brown that settles jet black with an off-white foamy head with a brown tint to it. Retains well with spotty lacing.

Smell - Musty with some roasted malt. Hints of vanilla and maple.

Taste - Carb overtakes it as it rushes in. The maple and vanilla sweetness comes in here, then it fades to significant woodiness.

Mouthfeel - Medium-bodied with high carbonation. Zero booziness. Good drinkability.

Overall - Not bad. Badass label. I was hoping for more of everything (vanilla, maple, thicker body) but I wasn't put off by this brew and had no problems finishing it.

Poured jet black with a finger and a half of thick tan-ish white head that lingered a good while. Smells of roast malt, traces of chocolate and hints of vanilla. The taste mirrors the smell with a subtle traces of maple that taper off nicely. Rich and smooth feel. Very enjoyable brew.
