3.88/5 rDev +2.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Appearance: Deep brown in color, with an immense dark head and plenty of lacing.
Smell: Dark roasted malts "bully" their way into the nose. Not a lot else is detectable.
Taste: Taste is on par with the smell, but somewhat more forceful than the aroma indicates. I'm not detecting as much hops as other reviewers have, but maybe that's because the roasted malts are so prominent. Either way, there is a strong bitterness that accompanies the aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: A little thinner than you'd expect after such full flavors, but creamy nonetheless.
Drinkability: Goes down rather quickly, despite the big flavors involved. However, the bitterness makes this beer best suited for having one or maybe two if it comprises your last couple beers of the night.
Notes: This was one of the first porters I liked a lot. After a long absence, I find it certainly still holds its own. It actually tastes more robust than I remember!
Serving type: bottle
