3.49/5 rDev -3.6%
A very fine beer, but I think it's a little closer to a good stout than what I think of when I hear "Porter".
A - Poured a very dark brown (not black), very little head but retained a thin lace throughout.
S - Roasted barley with very slight hop note.
T - Coffee, chocolate and roasted barely.
M - Very rich, almost "chewy".
O - Like I said above, a very fine beer but more like a stout.

3.71/5 rDev +2.5%
12 oz bottle, notched production date of April 2013, served in a snifter.
Pours clear but very dark brown with a small and weak head.
Aroma: ample notes of milk and medium chocolate with roasted grains.
Flavor: chocolate, leaning more to the dark chocolate side than does the aroma. Malty sweetness is mostly counter-balanced by English hops. Long lasting aftertase features dark roasted grains.
Feel: smooth; medium body
O: Chocolaty, even for style.

Poured into a perfect pint.
2.75 A: Dark brown black color. Two fingers of foamy tan head. Retention is below average and no lacing is left.
3.0 S: Dry with a lot of roastiness that borders on ashy. Some coffee and chocolate notes, but mainly just the standard roastiness.
3.0 T: Like the nose, there's a lot of roastiness in here, perhaps a bit too much. A bit sweeter than it smells, but still dry overall. Again some chocolate and coffee notes under the roast.
3.0 M: Light to lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lacking creaminess.
2.75 D: It's not a bad beer, but it's simple and the flavors it focusses on aren't the right ones.
