look: 4.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Look. Good rich dark mahogany, nice light tan medium head.
Smell. Beery, maybe a bit of chocolate, slightly to the crisp hop side.
Taste. Toasty, puckery, dry, some hidden malts.
Mouthfeel. Medium body, good sparkle, little, bit of puckerchew and dry hops at the end.
Overall. I prefer a heavier body and more malt character, but OK as a dry porter.

Very pleasing. With coffee and chocolate nuances. Smooth with little alcohol presence. Slight hop finish.

L=dark, oily brown/black
S= Malty chocolate
T=thin bitter chocolate, malt is not very prominent - a slight finish of sour lemony/grapefruit...
F= not a very lingering feel at all. Vapid and thin.
O= despite not being a very memorable porter - it isnt bad and would certainly get it again.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

This brew pours a solid black with a two finger tan head which lasts for a while and some of it remains on top until the end. Good lacing and carbonation.

The smell is chocolate malts and some spicy hops. Dried fruits and nuts and a woody earthy smell.

The taste follows the nose mostly follows the nose with chocolate malts and some very slightly roasted and sweet malts. There is the dried fruit and nuts taste there but their taste is weak and barely noticeable. There are some mild spicy hops on the back end. The feel is somewhat creamy.

Overall, this is another winner from Southern Tier. It is not as bitter, full of coffee or chocolate other porters but it is very smooth.

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

A: Pours a dark brown color with 2 fingers of head that fades down to a small cap

S: Dark fruits and roasted malt stands out the most, with hints of dark chocolate and coffee in the back

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with the roast and a bit of coffee, and goes into the semi-sweet dark chocolate and dark fruit notes. Very lightly bitter towards the end

M: Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A solid porter with a good balance between the roast and dark fruits. Very easy to drink, and an under-looked beer for being under $9 a 6-pack
