When is a good porter a great porter? When it's a stout! Trullium brewers cleverly mask the drier and more easily palatable stout with the drinkability and sensibility of porter with tethers of the cereal grain offering modest body and smoothness.

Billowing with lathery mocha foam, the beer's head breeches the rim as its higher than expected carbonation springs from the handsome dark elixir below. Sharp aromas of burnt toast, coffee ground and cocoa powder greet the nose while the taste of charred sugars and light cream settle over top of its expansive carbonation.

As those belgian-esque bubble pop off the tongue, they highlight the acidity of roast and bring out the beer's more peppery balance. With the carbonation highlighting the beer's dryness, only faint glimpses of oat is tasted or felt as a piquant tang emits in the form of grape seed, charred wood, tea leaf and coffee. Walnut bitterness cap off the taste as the beer nose-dives into a quick finish.

Helping only a little, the oats apply a creamy underlay to the medium-bodied beer. However, the high effervescence shreds the malt body to a dry and lightly ashy finish of peppercorn and roast-derived astringency.

Has this while watching the Super Bowl. I think it was the reason the Pats won. My Bud Lites were killing them the past few times against the Giants. This beer is perfect - not much more has to be said. So glad Trillium is back
