3.88/5 rDev -3.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Looks- Pours inky black. A few bubbles remain seconds aftera moment of head barely covered the surface. Considerable viscosity film on the glass. Aromas feature a mild scent of coffee and roasts
Taste..odd, I'd taste tested Founder's Porter about 90 min ago and besides the same look,this begins with about the same flavor and mouth. After a bit of lag,a touch of smoke appears. On closer inspection I get a little up front sweetness,and warmer,that element gains a little more. As with Founder's Porter there's mainly a coffee,raisin thing,no real hoppy side at all The main thing is smoke and it's more subdued than I expected.
Relative to Fade To Black or DH's Fore, I don't think the smoke integrates with the roasty base flavors. As to the amount of smoke taste,it's midway between Fade To Black and the slightly more smoke forward Fore. Far less,however than a Bamberg Rauch where that bacon flavor dominates.
Mouthfeel Has a stickiness that coats the lips and mouth a bit,though otherwise body is about medium for a Stout The carbonation is just enough,a very wee bit more would help. Aftertaste is a lingering mix of french roast and light smoke..is the area where the smoke does work well.
I'm quite fond of Fore...and Fore is less $ per 4-pack by a significant amount (just sayin'...)
Drinkability? Enjoyable,a tasty beer. I got this in a mixed six with a Founder's Porter and a Fore and were I to mix those 2 beers I'd pretty near replicate Fifteen at noticably less expense.
