4.05/5 rDev -3.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Poured from a 33 cl bottle into a standard pint.
A: Very dark brown. Pours a 1 finger, foamy brown-white head. Rising effervescence and pockets of carbonation clinging to the sides of the glass are pervasive. Slight spiderweb lacing.
S: Coffee, plenty of oak, and bittersweet dark chocolate.
T: Coffee beans, tea leaf, wood chips, peat, black licorice, and unsweetened bitter dark chocolate.
M: Hearty and very roasty. Lightly bitter finish.
D: Sip and savor.
Atmosphere is excellent. Dark hue, nice head, lots of carbonation, and some fair lacing. Nose is great combination of coffee, wood, and bitter dark chocolate. Complex combination of coffee and tea, wood and peat, bitter chocolate and licorice. Has a very roasted character to it. Overall, this is a great quaff.
Serving type: bottle

3.78/5 rDev -10%

A - Deep, dark brown. Sloshes around in the glass nicely with a solid head.
S - Burned sugar, char, peat and roasted malt. Could be fuller.
T - Char, mildly toasted malt. Roastiness and burned caramel. Unfortunately I can't help finding regular porters taste watered down compared to their Imperial brethren.
M - Smooth, and appropriately carbonated. A little thin and watery.
O - An easy-drinking and very sessionable porter which I'd gladly opt for if having a few pints with friends at a pub.
Serving type: on-tap

3.54/5 rDev -15.7%
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)
