Alberta (Canada)

4.4/5  rDev +4.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a nitro can into a schooner. No obvious best before date.

A - deep black in color with some ruby around the edges. Compact tan head coats the glass.

S - hint of caramel malt on the nose; not a lot there otherwise.

T - lots of great flavor in this one - slight bitterness makes way for a bit of smoke followed by some really smooth chocolate malt. Finishes practically like a chocolate milkshake.

M - really light mouthfeel with a smooth creaminess (thanks nitro).

D - extremely drinkable; could put a bunch of these down.

Very nice easy drinking but very flavorful porter. Years of practice makes this perfect!

Serving type: nitro-can

3.54/5  rDev -15.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a bottle into a snifter at around 45°F

Appearance: Brown with a mahogany tent when put up to the light. Small off white head

Smell: Sweet caramel malt and toffee

Taste: Identical to the smell

Mouthfeel: Medium body; slight bitterness and goes down smooth

Overall: I shouldve known what I was getting into after trying Anchor Porter the other week. This was just too sweet with not enough coffee notes. I prefer American style porters all the way (Founders, Smuttynose, Eddy Fitz)

Serving type: bottle
