Served in a MadTree glass

A - It is very dark with no light coming through. It is topped with a couple inches of tan head.

S - The first thing I notice is some healthy floral hops. The roasted, chocolaty malt comes through as well.

T - The taste is a perfect marriage of hops and malt. The rich roasted malt brings some coffee and chocolate flavors. The hops add some citrus and bitterness to balance this beer. You could almost call it a black IPA.

M - Full

O - This is a great hoppy porter. It combines all the good things hops and roasted malt have to offer.

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

A: Pours dark but allows a tinge of reddist light through the sides. A lightly tanned head sits atop.

S: Big roast coats your nostrils followed up by dark bitter coffee. Milk chocolate with a real earthy hop coming through on the end.

T: Exactly as it smells, an assault of bitter bold coffee, hints of sour roasted coffee beans, and a little espresso. All of a sudden an earthy hop takes hold of your tongue. Dry pine and bitter dark espresso finish this off. an aftertaste reminiscent of smoke.

M: Very light and sessionable. The finish is dry and quick.

O: I really enjoyed drinking this. Went down very very easily. I liked how the hop played with the roasted characteristics i just wish i had more of that sour green coffee bean that it hinted at. /89
