3.38/5 rDev -9.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
A: pours almost black with a very thin tan head that dissipates quickly.
S: nothing overwhelming but hints of malt give way immediately to sweet toffee.
T: initially sweet molasses followed by a slightly bitter coffe aftertaste. Hops definitely overwhelm this beer a tad more than most porters I've tasted...most likely true to the English style. For whatever reason, I didn't get a ton of chocolate.
M: a bit higher in carbonation than I would like, medium body
D: pleasant winter beer. Probably drinks best when paired with food.
Serving type: bottle
