3.08/5 rDev -16.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3
Poured an opaque dark dark DARK brown wtith light tan head that stayed longer than I thought.
It was so dark, even holding it to a light source, only the edges I could see through.
Smell was sweet raisin some peatiness. Really more raisiny than expected.
Taste: Just a little too sweet to be right. The raisin/sweet fruity taste overpowers most of the other flavors that are so faint, I can't tell if I really tasted them, or if I imagined them. I may or may not have tasted some caramel and peatiness in there. I love smoked porters, rauchbiers, and smokey food. After reading all other reviews I was expecting to get some smokiness. I got 0...none....zilch
Mouthfeel was good. Medium/heavy.
Overall: OK...Based on reviews and style I thought it would taste different. Not a bad beer. But too one dimensional for me. I would NOT get this one again.
Serving type: bottle
