3.99/5 rDev +4.5%
A: Dark brown with a slight red hue. Virtually no head, maybe a millimeter of white.
S: Smells of dark coffee, rich cocoa, roasted pecans and walnuts, toffee
T: Tastes like it smells with a deep coffee flavor coming through in the beginning (with the help of the nose) and the after taste. Even a faint taste of butterscotch within the java flavor along with dark syrup notes
M: I was almost worried that my beer was flat because there was almost no head or lacing to the beer, but once you taste it you realize there is a carbonated bite to the porter that makes it refreshing and deep and flavorful. Still wish there was a little more fullness to this porter
O: Other porters I have had are either too strong in the coffee, chocolate and other complex flavors. This beer is very drinkable and has more simple flavors than many other porters. But, this beer still has a delicious balance of more simple ingredients that makes it very drinkable but still tasty

3.76/5 rDev -1.6%
A: Pours a deep clear garnet with a thin tan head. God lacing
S: Light coffee and cream with some dark fruit, currant or raisin. A bit of vanilla.
T: Chocolate, coffee and toffee are in the forefront. Nice complex malt profile. There's some dark fruit, mostly raisin. low hop flavor but a decent amount of hop bitterness, just enough to balance the big malt profile. Some dark bread crust Starts sweet but finishes somewhat dry with a bright bitter aftertaste on the back of the tongue.
M: Not as full bodied as a stout but a medium full body, creamy. A definite astringent character is present in the finish. Low carbonation but there's a bit of an acidic bite to this. Not overwhelming but enough to let you know its not a stout.
O: This is quite a nice porter. I would recommend this to someone who doesn't want the chewy flavor and mouthfeel of a stout. It's essentially a mini stout, Good complex flavor in the malt and nice balance that leans toward the malty side.
