4.43/5 rDev +8.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Thick, dark coloring, slight ruby tinge.
Aroma: Caramel, Chocolate, and of course Coffee - it has a semblance of being a freshly-made mocha. Alike to the smell of warm coffee grinds on a cold winter's morning.
Taste: Fantastic Porter - coffee taste is strong, but its not overpowering. This is important - it tastes like a porter, and a damn fine porter at that. The strong coffee notes melt into the palate, and the flavor of the burnt roasted malts are becoming.
Very fleeting malt-type bitterness at the end; no hops bitterness.
Overall: Drinkable and not chewy, this beer does not produce an overly dry feeling or the syrupy sweetness found in some similar beers. This is a fine evening porter and a good dessert beer.

A - This beer is very dark. When held to the light only a faint ruby glow is perceptible. It is topped with a couple inches of tan head. There is a little lacing.
S - I smell some coffee, but it is not strong at all. There really isn't much else.
T - I get a some coffee and roasted malt. There is a mildly bitter finish.
M - Medium with low carbonation.
O - Full disclosure: this beer has two things working against it. This is my second beer of the evening. The first was a Peruvian Morning with huge coffee smell and taste. This beer lacks compared but still has its own merits. Second, this bottle was purchased in Massachusetts about ten months ago. I may have held on to it for too long. It is decent but not as good as the score indicates. i will revisit given the opportunity for a fresher bottle and a cleaner palate.
