3.35/5 rDev -20.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.25
A - Poured from a 32 oz. growler into an oversized wine glass. The beer is black, I can't see any other brown hues sometimes identifiable in a porter. Brown head comes up slowly, and recedes quickly. There is a skim of head left on the beer, but it doesn't leave any lace.
S - Minimal. I smell basically the roasted malt that one would expect.
T - Underwhelming. As the beer warms up a bit a sweetness develops that I don't really expect. There is a bit of chocolate, and a bit of roasted malt, but the main flavor is the milk-stout like sweetness.
M - Maybe it's supposed to feel this way, but I don't like it. Very slick. Very little substance. The finish leaves a lingering burnt bitterness in my mouth.
O - I acknowledge that my ratings are far below the average, and I don't know why. I drank this growler four hours after it was filled at the brewery. I'm not a huge porter fan, but everything that I've had has been better than this.

Trillium Brewing Company - Pot & Kettle, poured into a Fiddlehead snifter.
Look - Pours a thin viscosity brown and settles black with a brown hue and a good sized foamy head that dissipates slowly. Good lacing.
Smell - Aroma is sweet oaky vanilla bourbon with a dash of chocolate.
Taste - Sweet chocolate with roasted malt and coffee. Oaky vanilla with a slight whiskey burn.
Mouthfeel - Light-medium bodied with low carbonation. Warm whiskey boozy but not overly so. Very drinkable. Woody and slick.
Overall - Good brew, the thin body is typical of a porter but the oak gives it some kick. Would recommend. Can't wait to try more of their brews.

A-Pours close to black. Head is a big, dense clump of gooey foam. Lots and lots of thick lacing. Great looking Porter.
S-Smells of charred and burnt malt. Some chalkiness. Burnt coffee and oats. Bitter dark chocolate. Very roasty, very burnt.
T-Charred maltiness, super-bitter powdered cocoa. Black coffee. Light chalk. A sweetness arises as the beer warms. It's definitely coercive and bold, which I enjoy.
M-Great body. Mellowed carbonation. Bitter. Alcohol is light. Very drinkable. Went through a mini-growler far too quickly.
O/D-I enjoyed how this was a more assertive Porter. It wasn't just another exceedingly sweet take on the style. It was very unique and I would love to try the barrel aged version if they do it again.
