3.35/5 rDev -19.3%
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.

5/5 rDev +20.5%
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.
