look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a quarter finger high light beige head that died down but never completely faded away.
S: Light to moderate aromas of dark malts are present in the nose along with hints of roasted malts and chalk.
T: The taste is similar to the smell but seems more complex with additional hints of burnt malts and coffee.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and quite flavorful, especially considering its low alcohol content.

3.75/5  rDev -1.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Dark brown/black and a little red with a nice head and considerable lacing, not far off from a lightly foamed coffee.

Smell: Not the most aromatic of beers. Certainly doesn't have the heavy coffee smell of many other porters.

Taste: It doesn't have as obvious a coffee feel as many other porters I've tried. Labeled as an "artisanal ale porter" perhaps this was expected. This was considerably lighter than porters that have more of the heavy stout feel to them. A light roasty taste to it, but neither the barley nor the hops were particularly dominant or overbearing. For a dark beer, this just felt a bit light, perhaps in part because of the low ABV and subtlety of the coffee flavor.

Mouthfeel: Nothing unique in this category.

Overall: This was an interesting beer and worth a try, but at this price point this is nothing to write home about. I wouldn't get it twice but was worth the try. Not refreshing like an IPA but a good choice if you're not going for the intense Imperial Stout feeling. Much less hard-hitting a porter than Alta Gracia Coffee Porter or Victory At Sea Coffee Vanilla Imperial Porter, so get this if you want something a little more laid-back.
