look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

This is a nice balanced porter that is easy drinking enough to quaff on a summer evening but hearty enough to work on a winter night. I like the balanced taste that walks centerline through sweet, chocolate, caramel, bitter, and even slightly hoppy notes. It has a nice dark look, perhaps a little headless but that's not critical here, I do feel a porter should have a little more body. Give this a shot if you like solid porters.

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

Appearance: Pours with a head of about two fingers of bubbly off-white head. Almost no active carbonation is surprising. Frothy lacing left behind from the remains of the head.

Smell: Medium bodied chocolate provides balanced notes of sweet and bitter on the front. Light roasted coffee and lingering chocolate sweetness carry into the body with accents of caramel. Notes of vanilla and molasses carry on the theme of a brighter porter overall.

Taste: Pale chocolate malts really shine on the front. A touch of roasted malts open up on the body with that earthy twang of english hops on the body. Robust rich chocolate picks up again on the back end. Earthy bitter finish is surprisingly easy on the palate.

Mouthfeel: Very drinkable. Nothing too much of note but goes down very easily. Carbonation is light which fits the brew overall.

Overall: Feels like a summer sessionable porter. Potent chocolate notes with a rich creamy drinkability. Not up to the elite levels of their saisons, but I continue to be impressed by what Door County Brewing is doing.
