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.
Serving type: bottle

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.
Serving type: growler
