look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A- deep, deep brown. Got about one finger of light tan head from the pour. It doesn't last long but does leave some nice lacing from the circumferential remnants.

S-earthy hops and some black liquorice.

T- there's a nice roasted chocolate malt flavor with a hint of astringency from the alcohol. A little of the hops balances it all out

M- a little bit carbonation dances across your palate and it's not as full as other porters I've had. Not as smooth.

O- Definitely not a bad porter. My complaints are probably more personal preference.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.75

12oz. bottle poured into pint glass.

A: Pours a burnt mahogany, with a large bubbly tan head. The intensity of the head dies out quickly, leaving substantial amounts of tan sticky lace. A wonderful creamy cap remains until the end.

S: Some roasted malts along with a pronounced hop characteristic. A little bit of caramel and some dark, bitter chocolate. Pretty average.

T: Lots of roasted malts meshed with a slight hop bite. A bit of brown sugar and dark chocolate underneath. Ends with a very mild roasted black coffee flavor. Not as brash as I had hoped, but still solid and enjoyable.

M: This one feels incredible in the mouth. A very mild carbonation adds just enough bite initially, but really allows the creaminess of this brew to shine through. It's not a huge bodied brew, but it's full and silky smooth.

O: While I'll admit that there's better porters out there, Troegs offers an extremely good example of the style. While it's not as bold and in-your-face as I had hoped, it doesn't lack enjoyability and this brew could be a great gateway into the style. Definitely recommended for fans of the style and newcomers alike.

Poured from a 12oz to a snifter glass.

A- Dark dark brown almost black when coupled with the reflective glass. Almost an inch of foamy light tan head that leaves a decent amount of lacing.

S- A roasted malt with a slightly sour/bitter smell like a day old cup of coffee. Cocoa isn't as prevalent in the nose. Probably masked by the roast.

T- Roasted malt and coffee up front giving way to a small taste of chocolate and ending in a pulsing bitter. Not getting any sweetness from the chocolate. Kind of a semi-sweet bitter.

M- Thin at first not viscous but swished around it takes on a different mouthfeel with the carbonation. Very drinkable with a roasted bitter lingering feel.

O- Not the best porter I've had but also not the worst. Balanced is an appropriate term. Smooth and drinkable without a noticeable trace of booze. Then again I'm not even sure what the ABV is. Recommend for the end of a dinner with maybe some smoked salmon or a nice poultry citrus dish.
