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)

4.33/5  rDev +3.1%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Poured from the 11.2 oz. bottle into a Samuel Smith English tulip pint.

a: Clear dark ruby with a two inch tall tan head which receded slowly to thick even surface foam and dense lacing.

s: Caramel malt and black coffee.

t: Similar to the nose, a nice combination of sweet caramel malt, black coffee and dark chocolate. At first bitterness lingers at the sides of the tongue, but this smooths out later. Slight black coffee and dark chocolate aftertaste.

m: Light to medium with good body, although there are some hints of wateriness.

o: A tasty and refined porter. Very easy drinking and sippable. I'll have to revisit Founders' Breakfast Stout to recall what that has that this one apparently does not besides higher ABV and "fuller" body, based on the differences in the BA ratings of the two.
