3.78/5  rDev +1.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Presentation: 12oz brown bottle. Bottled on date stamped on the side.

Appearance: Very dark brown with ruby hues. Pours foamy and thick, then settles to a tan creamy, patchy lace.

Smell: Roasty, touch of smoke and light grain aromas.

Taste: Real smooth and creamy. Full-bodied and near robust. Carbonation is tight. Roasted malt flavours come forth first with a typical black malt astringency. The beer goes crisp, a bit dry. Chocolate, liquorice and dark fruit flavours follow within the beer's sweet malt profile. A touch of hop bitterness and flavour is present, mixing with the roasted astrigency to just about balance the beer. Aftertaste is dry with grain flavours.

Notes: One of the better Porters to have passed along my palate in a while. Just the right level of sweetness and astringency

Serving type: bottle
