look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance- Dark brown color with 1/4 inch of light brown head.
Smell- Smells of roasted chocolate and coffee.
Taste- A little hoppy up front but the complex flavors of roasted chocolate and coffee come in to make a smooth finish.
Mouthfeel- Light mouthful for such a dark beer. Very easy to drink
Overall- I haven't had too many beers of this style, but after this one I'm ready to try some more. Great flavor and easy to drink is always a winning combination!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A- deep garnet with a rocky beige head. Good head retention and excellent lacing.

S- cherry, fig, malt, raisin. Smells like a Belgian quad. Wonderfully complex.

T- malty, toasty, I pick up on some biscuit malt. There is a very light hop presence leading into a finish of dark cocoa and deeply roasted malt.

M- medium bodied, slightly prickly carbonation. The finish is dry and slightly astringent.

O- Complex, toasty, warming, awesome.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a New Belgium goblet. Base of bottle says Filled 02/20/14.

A- Pours a mostly opaque black color with a 1/2 inch tan head that retains a bit before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a bubbly patch of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a jagged ring behind.

S- Moderate dark roast aroma with notes of chocolate, mocha and vanilla.

T- Flavor follows suit with some more dark roast and a nutty finish. Easy to drink, semi-sweet.

M- Kind of thin even for a porter but decent enough. Medium carbonation and a fullish body.

O- Not a whole lot going on with this one but it's a good kind of simple.

This porter is a very dark brown and exhibits a redness in certain lights. The head is also quite persistent and there is significant lacing. The smell is basic roasted malt. The taste begins with the previously noted burnt hops flavor and has served real malt and sweetness thereafter. Surprisingly light-bodied. Not bad, lighter and more drinkable than most porters.
