4.25/5  rDev +10.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appears to be opaque, looks like a stout. Tan foam and lacing up the glass.

Smells like chocolate with roasted malt, slight hint of coffee.

Taste is complimentary to the aroma, with roasted malt eventually winning out to the choco-coffee schematic. Aftertaste of roasted malt/mild coffee...easy to revel in the earthy roast of this fine porter.

Mouthfeel is thin, somewhat creamy, bolstered by that roasty aftertaste. It's not as thick as a stout, though the flavor makes up for the less robust mouthfeel. Highly drinkable, this 6-pk. disappeared quickly from the hoard after a recent WI road trip.

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.
