3.73/5  rDev -3.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12 oz. brown bottle into a standard clear pint glass.

Appearance: Deep clear brown with a reddish tint when held to the light, with light brown head and decent lacing.

Smell: Sweet malts, burnt caramel and chocolate predominant with a little citrus pine hops beneath.

Taste: Crisp and dry with good malt and caramel flavors, also more hops than most porters...and I like that. Gives it a really good balance to all the malt and caramel.

Mouth Feel: Medium bodied with good carbonation. Finishes dry.

Overall: A really good session porter. I could easily have had a couple more. Hoppier than most porters, and I liked that. A good interpretation of the American Porter style.

3.65/5  rDev -5.4%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Pours a cola like brown with very little head. Makes me a bit concerned about this bottle, as the label says it should form a large head.

The smell is mainly chocolate, maybe a bit of malt and vanilla as well.

Quite a bit of chocolate up front, there's some fruit and coffee, finishes with a bit of lingering hop bitterness.

A touch on the thin side, but the carbonation keeps it interesting and lets me know my concern about the lack of head is unfounded.

Overall a pretty nice beer. I consider it to be a dessert beer, as it reminds me a bit of chocolate cake or a brownie. It's maybe a touch heavy on the hops, but still goes down fairly easily. Glad I took a chance on this one.
