Texas

4.33/5  rDev +3.1%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a very dark brown. There is very little head on it dispite my hard pour (felt little bit of a let down). I do remember this having a bigger head on draft so maybe it was something in the bottle or perhaps I poured it shitty. Smells like coffee and a lot of roasted malt. Tastes very strongly of roasted flavors, coffee like bitterness, and very dark chocolate. These mix with a very strong metallic/earthy hop flavor to make a very interesting porter. This is definitely something to have again. Went very well on a rainy day.

Serving type: bottle

3.78/5  rDev -10%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

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
