look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12 oz. bottle into a shaker pint glass.

A--Standard looking body--black with hints of ruby on the sides. Pour yields a formidable head, maybe 2 and a half fingers of mocha foam. Subsides to a ring that lasts for the duration.

S--Pretty unremarkable. Some molasses, a little toffee, and way in the back some coffee grounds.

T--Whew. The nose doesn't prepare you for this. What a ride--hops, hops, hops. Tons of wood and earth, with a tobacco leaf thing toward the very back of the finish. Tiny bit of sweetness, almost cherry-like, at the beginning, and the bitter chocolate and coffee in the middle is quickly dominated by the hops. This may be the driest porter I've ever had. Definitely an American version, definitely heavy-handed with the Chinook. Good God is this hoppy.

M&D--The mouthfeel is a little too lively for the style, though I see why it's there (i.e. to temper the cheek-caving dryness). Drinkability's decent. I'd have it again, especially on-tap, where I think fresh the malt might make more of an appearance, strange as that may sound.

Polarizing beer. I like hops, but porter is usually an everyday style, and this is not an everyday flavor profile. Definitely for those that like big, bold in your face interpretations of styles.
