I don't go to Allagash very often for a rew different reasons but I wanted to try this years version of this beer.Poures a deep cola color with a nice big rocky light beige head that becomes creamy as it settles into a frothy mass.Aromas of dark roast and mineral-like yeastiness wich was different,although it might be an American porter it is heavy handed in the yeast department.A little sharp in the mouth but mouthfeel is about right.Espresso roast coffee flavors along big earthiness and yeast,faint citric notes in the finish.Hmm it's not bad but I was expecting a little more I guess .

3.34/5 rDev -11.9%
Appearance: dark brown in color, 1/4 inch head, medium carbonation, clear
Smell: roasted coffee
Taste: coffee and roasted malt,
Mouthfeel: moderate carbonation, medium-heavy body, roasty bitterness
Overall: I am usually wowed by Allagash, however this beer did not do this for me. It is a solid roasty porter and a nice slow drinker. Above average, but nothing I would seek out again.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Not quite black. Transparent at the edges. Big off white head. Thick collar.
Smell - Smells like it's hoppy, but I guess that's the blood orange. Citrusy. Grapefruit. Roasty.
Taste - Orangey citrus. Slightly roasty, but more of a caramel flavor. Slightly bitter.
Mouthfeel - Rather thin. Seems overcarbonated. Maybe it isn't.
Overall - Very blah. No body. Not a good blend of orange and chocolate.

Pours dark as a porter should be. Although I didn't realize it was a porter until I poured and saw and smelled it. It has a burnt nose with a little citrus that comes through. Or maybe it's more because I expect there to be citrus. But it really doesn't have much of a citrus smell, or when it comes to taste it's pretty absent too. It's a very burnt porter which can go either way. The burnt malty taste pretty much takes up all the taste but does make an interesting porter. I guess I really can't commit to how much I like this or not so it must be somewhere in the middle. The price is the biggest downfall. For this price I expect a bit more.

Had this on tap in Arlington, VA. Pours a tan color with a small amount of foam. Smell of malts, chocolate and orange. Taste is....well terrible. I had about 3-4 sips but could not manage to get this down. Not sure if there was something wrong with the keg, but it was pretty brutal. It tasted extremely boozy and the blood orange is barely noticeable. I tasted less alcohol in BCBS than this. When I saw the 6.40% I was like wtf how is that possible.
