look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
A - Pours a glowing dark brown with thin khaki head that doesn't last, but leaves a nice lace. Surprisingly darker than their Blackout stout, though.
S - Some coffee, brown sugar and a minuscule amount of coffee. Slight touch of raisin.
T - Dark brown sugar, weak coffee, roasted almonds.
M - Light bodied, above average carbonation.
O - Only word that comes to mind is solid. Everyone should try it at least once.

Dark, opaque with about a finger of fluffy tan head. Smells of coffee, chocolate, molasses and some smokiness. I taste slight coffee, some chocolate, slight oakiness. A great smoky aftertaste. Medium body and well-carbonated. Overall, a great example of the style. Subtle tastes and well-balanced. Great flavor profile for being lower gravity.

4.3/5 rDev +0.9%

Molasses in color with a diminutive head that's beige-toned. Receding with some lace.
Roasted coffee aroma with some chocolate fudge, caramel, walnut, and earthiness.
Gulpy black coffee and char flavors immediately. Nice bitter undertones from the black malts. A little spicy hop sensation, but this is a standup malty porter with lots of character. Nice semi-dry finish to balance all of the dessert-like notes in the beginning.
Medium body feels coating. Nice carbonation level. Right there with you all the way.
Quite a marvel for such a craft standard. I guess that's what makes it so great.
Serving type: on-tap
