3.5/5  rDev -9.8%

On draft, pours a dark brown with a light brown/tan head.

Smell is roasty; toasted oats, hazelnut with bitter hops and a little malt. Flavor is sweet at first, roasted malt, coffee bitterness and dark chocolate. This paired with the sweetness makes me think of coffee with Splenda in it. The bitterness and crystal malts are not working together well enough on this to make me like it more. It is a little unbalanced.

On tap at House of Brews in Jensen Beach, Fl.

A – Poured out a dark brown to light black with almost no head. Still did produce a small ring of off white to tan head that stayed around.

S - Espresso, Roasted malt and a slight milky/coffee creamer aroma. Vanilla.

T – Coffee. Roasted malts. Touch of sweetness. Definitely light vanilla notes like the aroma. Small amounts of dark chocolate and cocoa as well. Nice.

M- Light to medium bodied. Solid carbonation.

O – If you like the roasted malt and coffee flavors in your porter this is the one for you. I totally dug this one as it had a nice strong black coffee flavor. Just plain tasty all around.

Pitch black in color with some cream colored head that faded into a very thin collar. Aroma is very roasty, some dark chocolate and a hint coffee. Taste is roasted malt, and an earthiness to it too. Rich, full body and medium carbonation. Definitely one of the better beers from Funky Buddha.

On-tap at Funky Buddha. Served in a pint glass 5/23/2014.

A- Dark brown body, one finger offwhite head with good retention and rings of lacing. Looks very much the part of a porter.

S- Nutty, smoked malt, a bit of roast malt, slight cherry skin. Nothing special but certainly a solid nose for a porter.

F- This is where things start to go wrong. It starts out nutty, with a small amount of roast malt sweetness, but the biggest issue I have is the teriyaki sauce that kicks up in the middle and finishes out the beer. There is a lot of that smoky umami flavour that just does not belong in a porter, IMO. You could describe it as teriyaki flavoured beef jerky. Some people might like this, but I am not a big fan.

M- Medium bodied, on the thinner side, good carbonation and smooth. A bit sticky and resinous. Not anything particularly off-putting about the mouthfeel other than the strange teriyaki finish.

O- Started out promising, but the teriyaki beef jerky flavour just really didn't do it for me at all. I have to wonder if this is the base beer for Last Snow or MBCP- because if it is, I'm honestly surprised that Last Snow turned out as good as it did.
