3.6/5 rDev 0%
Picked up a 12oz single for $2.79. Into a pint glass
A - Can't knock the color deep dark black brown, can't see through it with a 1/4 inch of mocha head that sticks around for a bit.
S - Smells like a decent porter a bit sour probably from the berries. Mostly hops and smokey ash.
T - Slightly bitter some coffee bitterness, and a touch of drying berries/ashy smoke.
M - Pretty smooth mostly medium bodied not very silky. Bitter.
Overall I don't think Juniper berries was a great addition to this porter. Left it very dry, herbal, and somewhat sour. Not bad overall but still not great.

ONE PINT bottle
Served in a tumbler
A - This beer pours dark. No light penetrates the body. It is topped with four inches of mocha head.
S - The aroma is roasted malt and cocoa.
T - The taste is much the same. I get some roasted malt and cocoa. I also notice a burnt flavor. The juniper adds a lingering bitterness.
M - Full
O - It is average. I got this as an extra in a trade. I probably would not buy it.

Arrives the color of roasted chestnuts (tis the season), clear with some slight light penetration around the edges. Head is espresso foam colored and decently retained, becoming a clumpy film. Great lace.
Smell is toasted, almost burnt, malt, coffee, cardboard, ashy. Well balanced but I'm a little concerned of what the taste will bring.
Taste is ashy, with a pine note underlying it. Malts are burnt, period. Off-putting.
Medium bodied, lighter effervescence, slight drying in the finish. Stop overcooking the malts and this could be a really good brew. Ain't there as it stands.

This strikes me as quite a Scandinavian porter. There is a mild bit of molasses in the mix there and the juniper does get in on the party. But what's there is not overly intrusive and is slightly past being subtle. I like it. Carbonation is a bit high. Very pleasant drinker. I bet this would be pretty interesting on cask.
