4.7/5 rDev +12.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Presentation: 12 oz brown with a simple yet inviting label, purchase before date clearly marked.
Appearance: Very dark brown with a clinging tan lace that seems to stay for a while.
Smell: Mildly sweet in the nose with hints of charcoal, roasted malts and a touch of hops.
Taste: Silky smooth with a nice medium bodied mouth feel. After the luscious mouth feel come the flavour which is quite malty ... light acidic twang from the roasted malts, a little dark roasted coffee flavour and an underlying toasted biscuit taste are balanced with a perfect combo of hop and roasted malt bitterness. The lingering after taste is of faded burnt sugar, drying grain and a slightly warming alcohol. A wonderful yet delicate hop character helps to round this brew also.
Notes: Oh baby! There are good porters and then there are great porters ... this one goes down as a great one, no doubt!
Serving type: bottle

A: Very dark black and a khaki head. This is a very dark beer. No wonder they give it its name.
S: Charred oats, bitter chocolate, malt.
T: Charred oats as said. Burnt chocolate, some hops, biscuit, toast, malt. Honestly I'm not too keen on the taste. It's a great beer no doubt, but I don't see what the hype is about.
M: Medium to thick-ish. Kind of a rough velvety feel.
O: A great brew, but like I said: the flavor on this one isn't my favorite. It's a bit too charred for me- as if the malts were a tad over done. I liked the beer overall, though.
Serving type: on-tap
