3.78/5  rDev +12.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

12oz. bottle into pint glass.

A - A hard pour resulted in a small, quickly fading head without much lacing. A dark brown color with a slight reddish tint.

S - Raspberry initially, followed by some dark malt, chocolate, and coffee. The raspberry is not overpowering, just adds some complexity to the smell.

T - Hit by raspberry initially. Tart but not as sweet as expected. Followed by chocolate and then coffee. Finishes with just a hint of hop bitterness.

M - A bit on the thin side for a porter, and a bit overcarbonated.

D - I liked the taste of this one, but the watered down mouthfeel spoils it to some degree. Could go for one from time to time, but nothing I will go out of my way to look for.

Pouring a cellar temp bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a rich dark brown with some mahogany highlights on the edges of the glass. Minimal creamy beige head foams up and remains a thin surface layer.
Aroma is mild with raspberry and chocolate almost like a fruit filled candy, maybe the fruit paste kind not the gel.
First sip reveals a very light and thin body and tiny gentle rolling carbonation.
Flavor is similar to the nose, with a mild overall profile, but I get some roasted malt and dry baker's chocolate. These flavors roll to sweet raspberry notes. Finish is also a little dry.
Not a flawed brew but not overly interesting. It held up pretty well over time, but I wonder if it was a little more bold fresh?
