Notes/Commercial Description:
A superb porter, hearty & dark. This one is a staff favorite, made with pale, crystal, Munich, chocolate, and black malts. The darker malts give Coal its color and rich flavor. We use Target and Willamette hops to yield a very subtle hop flavor in this porter.

We cellar this beer for close to six months before releasing it on the thirsty throngs of fans.

A - I could not pour this beer into a glass as it foamed up like a root beer float going over the top
S - coco and bitter chocolate smells
T & M - great porter flavor but the over carbonation boils in my mouth, making a little hard to drink, take it slow
Overall - it is a great start but need to be refined

12 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: A finger mocha head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a dark brown black color with little vision of anything when held up to the light. Frothy mocha lacing all the way down the glass.

Smell: Old stale ale, toffee, caramel, a little smoke, chocolate, and some bready toasted malts.

Taste: Cellaring for 6 months has down a great job. Mellowing out of flavors have made this porter have a balance of flavors. Some ashy bitterness blended in there too.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, a little chewy, medium bodied, low to medium carbonation, and mediums little bitterness.

Overall: Pretty nice porter Mainah. Enjoyable and delicious.

Looks, smells, and tastes like a Porter. Nothing special. I can't see giving this any more than a 3, but it isn't awful. The batch I had was way overcarbonated. The head spills from the neck as soon as you pop the top, and I can only fill a glass about 1/4 of the way before having to stop and let the head die down for a few minutes.

All of Atlantics brews are pretty lackluster, and I wouldn't recommend them.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on January 4, 2014.

It looks the way a Porter should look with its jet black pour and long lasting mocha head. I give the look a high grade.

The aroma has a bit of chocolate on the nose with dark malts and a light almost subtle bitter hop quality in the background. Also a tad buttery.

Medium body.

The taste also highlights the chocolate character of the nose with a kind of earthy hop and clean finish at the finale. This is a decent Porter but nothing extraordinary. But still drinkable.
