5/5  rDev +20.5%
look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Definitely one of the best beers I've ever had, and probably my favorite porter. A great balance of malty sweetness and dark roasted flavors, along with an incredibly smooth mouthfeel and a really inviting, sweet aroma. Just fantastic.

Appearance: Awesome. Opaque black, with a little bit of light showing through a deep brown at the bottom of my mug. A thin vanilla-colored head that stuck around pretty well, especially for a growler pour

Smell: Super inviting. Very sweet, obvious notes of chocolate and/or coffee.

Taste: Perfectly balanced between sweet roasted malts and more bitter, smoky flavors. A definite kick of alcohol in the finish (in a good way)

Mouthfeel: Smooth. Really, really easy to drink for a medium-high ABV dark beer.

The smoothness surprised me. Very good beer.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Date: 11/17/14
Location: Trillium Brewing Company
Draught/Bottle: 750ml Brown Bottle
Glassware: Snifter

Appearance: Pouring a black/dark brown until it's edging which is coffee to clear with light tan carbonation. The retention and cling of the carbonation is short and nonexistent.
Aroma: The aroma has a lot to offer starting with roasted coffee and dark chocolate bitterness. The bitterness moves towards sweetness as I get an almond milk/lactose aroma with oats making the beer cereal like.
Taste: Roasted coffee and chocolate again starts but this time is taken over by a mellow charcoal malt flavor. The sweeter lactose and cocoa help to balance out the charcoal and the beer in general.
Mouthfeel: Medium body but a super slick, oily mouthfeel left by the oats. Medium low carbonation that helps push around the course charcoal feeling throughout the mouth.

Notes: Dated 10/9/14

Nice porter that is a great mix of rich dark chocolate and sweet milk chocolate. Little bit of hops and vanilla. A well done example of the style.
