4.35/5  rDev +13.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Across the board, this is one of the most solid porters I've had, albeit not the most straightforward.

A: This beer is more black than my soul. Viscous, but not motor oil status. Nice taupe head with good retention and sticky lacing.

S: Smell is of cocoa and buttery richness with a slight hint of Maduro leaf.

T: Oatrageously smoky, rich and delicious. The chocolate flavor is more of an aromatic than an actual taste, but it has a nice impact nonetheless. The bitter hop melds with the chocolate; the result is a great balance of complementing and contrasting elements.

M: Silky and yet well-carbonated. Thick enough to carry the roasted character, effervescent enough to showcase a mildly bitter hop.

D: This is on-tap at the tavern down the street. Every time I go there, I try to order something else, but I always end up drinking a few of these. So it is eminently drinkable.

Serving type: on-tap

4.01/5  rDev +5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a deep brown with two fingers of nice khaki colored head that fades quickly, solid retention of chunky lacing.

Smell: Also solid with chocolate and smoke up front followed by ground coffee beans and more roastiness. Solid for a porter for sure.

Taste: Nice and sweet, some bitter chocolate and a nice roastiness to it. A bit of coffee flavor but not a ton, very smooth.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with low carbonation, could perhaps benefit with a bit more body but this is smooth and creamy.

Overall: This is a very good, almost great porter from Red Brick. First of their offerings that I've tried and I would definitely pick up a bottle again.

Serving type: bottle
