3.48/5 rDev -8.4%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5
Appearance - Little to no head, a little sign of carbonation but not much. Dark brown in a pint glass with some amber and caramel colors around the sides of the glass.
Smell - Combination of citrus hops and sweet malts give it some what of a unique smell. Smells like something but I can't place it, almost like a fruity chocolate candy smell.
Taste - Good but needs something still. Starts with a hit of citrus hops, then the malts kind of balance but do not overwhelm, then finishes with bitter hops. Good but would like a more dynamic malt flavor instead of just enough to balance.
Mouthfeel- Could use more carbonation, kind of flat and watery to me, only a slight bite of carbonation. Not too thick or oily.
Overall - Decent porter, but not my favorite I have tried and probably wouldn't seek this one out again. However it is a solid slightly above average example of the style.
