2.41/5  rDev -33.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.25

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.

Serving type: on-tap

3.6/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

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.

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.
