Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass. Beer is dark brown to black and forms a head of small and medium bubbles that is brownish. Head falls away and eventually breaks leaving some lacing on the glass.

Beer smells sweet and roasty. Smells pretty good.

Sweet, coffee, roast comes up late and lingers. Not really an aftertaste. Overall the beer is medium bodied and well balanced. Highly drinkable and nice carbonation in the mouth fills out the body of the beer well.

A - dark chestnut in color, but clearly brown and not black, wells up a half finger of light brown head, too dark to note carbonation

S - big roasty toasty malts up front, would you expect any less from a quality porter?!? Notes of both chocolate and coffee rest above a finish of alcohol

T - bitter coffee and chocolate hit first, but it doesn't stay that way. The bitterness fades into great chocolate flavor and finishes with the straight peaty malts and some alcohol

M&D&O - not smooth, but layered and complex for a standard porter, more flavors than I expected. First Troegs beer, and a good way to start.

12 oz bottle, there was a freshness date on the case I bought. I love the label on this beer. The hand of fate is holding my moral compass.

A - Pours a black with some red highlights. Creamy tan that lasts a minute or two.

S - Holy hops batman, this smells more like some ipa then a porter. I also get some strange floral notes. I smell some malt but it's faint, very faint.

T - Wham bam big hop slam, wow that's some hop bitterness, but it meld very well into the flavor of this brew. Still that odd floral smell has gone into the taste, not that it's bad, but it's different for a porter. Some chocolate malt in the back end.

M - This is harder to explain, it has a medium carbonation, with a slick oily feel but the hops bring it into a dry finish.

D - I could see this being a session beer, would go great with some barbequed pork ribs.

Aftermath: This beer seems to grow on you, I am not a hop head, but the hoppiness of this beer works. I can safely say that I like it more with each bottle I drink.

12oz bottle, no dating

Pours a very dark reddish-brown, near-black, with a creamy, dark tan head. Lace becomes a bit scant as it dissipates, but otherwise a stalwart looking porter.

Scent is surprisingly hoppy up front, with only the slightest hint of malty sweetness.

Hops are also at the forefront, with the roasted quality of the malt being fairly mild for the style. Element of bitter cocoa, not sweet, and hint of coffee and hazelnut. Medium bitter finish.

Medium body, slightly thin, which adds to the drinkability for me.

Different from most American Porters brewed these days. More hop-forward, and less dependent on the heavily roasted malt and coffee/cocoa elements. The lack of sweetness is welcome as well. I like it.
