3.78/5 rDev +1.1%
Jet black with a mocha colored head with not much retention. No visible carbonation. No lacing
Smells strongly of cocoa/bittersweet chocolate. Coffee. Smoky roasted malts
Taste is a little thin. Lots of smoke and roasted barley. Black coffee. Very subtle chocolate. Hint of tobacco. Some buttery diacetyl common for Geary's
Feels watery thin. Slight bite of carbonation. Medium bodied (light for a porter) and smooth
Overall not bad but nothing to write home about. Nice if you want a dark beer that won't fill you up to quickly. Goes nicely with barbecued steak

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on April 19, 2013.
It pours nearly black with brown hues caressing the edge of the lgass and a long-lasting, foamy tan head.
The aroma is delightful with dark malts coffee and even a little smoke.l
But from here on out it slips a bit. The body was thin and a lot more watery than the Porters I like to drink.
The taste has hints of dark malts and coffee but there is am kind of buttery character and and bland aftertaste that lingers. I chalk that up to low bitterness but it just seems to be missing something.

The appearance is what you'd expect - well-carbonated and decent lacing. Great roasted smell. The taste has got dark chocolate and coffee wrapped in with the malt - a great dry example of the style (and also, a really excellent example of a dark beer not loaded with calories.) I was going to dock more points in the mouthfeel department for being maybe too mild, but as I'm drinking it, I'm realizing a.) this is the first porter I could drink several of, and b.) This is Geary's. I really really dig this company. They blend tradition and craftsmanship in a way I thoroughly respect.
