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

Pours near black where no light shines through. Beige head that settles to a thin level of bubbles. Leaves some smudges of lace on the glass.

Strong aroma of powdered cocoa. Semi-sweet nose.

The predominant flavor is the aforementioned powdered cocoa, but there is some definitive black patent malt that brings a burnt toast aspect to the taste, particularly in the swallow and aftertaste. Very coffee like. Moderate body with an elevated carbonation.

3.63/5  rDev -8.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Dark-brown, bordering black with a fluffy tan head that settles over time to a small ring. Doesn’t seem to leave much lacing overall

Scent: Chocolate, roasty grain, lightly buttery and rich, hazelnut and red apple notes; a touch of ash and tobacco from the cherrywood-smoked malt

Taste: Velvety combination of dark chocolate, pine-y bitter hops, burning wood char, and a warming, comforting nutty note that lingers long after each sip

Mouthfeel: Initially a rather sharp, engaging beer that tours the palate, though it does settle down after a few pours, becoming a stalwart and enjoyable brew

Drinkability: Fine when all is said and done; the light yeasty approach adds some body towards the end of the bottle, and the flavors are enjoyable and delicate

Overall: Good, to-style American porter that gets the job done and includes some high-quality characteristics such as a distinct, light smokiness and a slightly bright hop quality here and there. The light fruity notes and approachable char & roast elements make this a solid example that I'm proud call local.
