From a trade with Almalkin. This may very well be the best porter I've had yet
A - Poured a dark black almost motor oil consistancy into a pint mug with a large frothy tan head that fell extremely slowly into a thick lacing down the glass while maintaing a halo of froth on top of the brew the entire way down
S - Big coffee smell with a hint of biscuit and a little fruitiness in there also and then just a whiff of grassy hops in the nose also
T - The taste was spot on for a porter in my opinion. Nice bittersweet of the coffee and caramel/tofee with a hint of spicy fruit and then a nice hoppy finish at the end to give it a dry crisp ending on the palate...excellent
M - The mouthfeel was also on point with a nice thick feeling without it being to thick and it coming off as a stout. Good carbonation but not overdone delivers all the flavors to the back of the palate
D - I really regret that I only got two in the trade and will be working out future trades for much larger quantities..this is a beer that would make me consider relocating
