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

The body was dark brown and opaque like almost every other porter around, but this one had a pretty big tan colored head too. The smell was sweet chocolate, hints of coffee, and very mild smoke. The taste was fantastically smooth, with lots of vanilla, toffee, chocolate, and a smoky finish. The mouthfeel was velvet like, and soothing to the maximum. Very impressive offering from a brewery that usually does not entice me enough.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Served in a flared glass at Rapture. From notes. Reviewed 14 September 2011.

A: Thick, creamy head. Black-dark and nearly opaque. Dark for a porter. Great lacing.

S: Neutral. A trace of berries? Little to no smoke or roastiness.

T: Much sweeter than expected and less bitter than many porters. Vanilla/cream slinks though the maintaste. Only on the aftertaste does the roasted (hardly smoky) bitterness emerge.

M: Smooth, moderately substantial, and sometimes carbonated. Good.

O: Underwhelming and misnamed. Easily the least impressive of the Mutiny Fleet I've encountered (and the only one on-tap).

Serving type: on-tap

Shared at Brians Bday

App- Like a bit of oil in the glass with some chocolate syrup as well. A medium dense brown/black inky color. A little bit of lighter edges and then produced no head on it. A few bubbles around the edges.

Smell- When this first poured out, I got a bit of the smoked malts, a little dryness and some chocoalte. It was a bit better than most smoked beers but still what I was thinking. A bit whispy and clean.

Taste- I actually enjoyed this beer quite a bit. It was a nice porter to start, deep chocolate and roasted malts and then balanced out by a smoother smoke flavor and not overbearing. Smooth and creamy as well, with a bit of creamy lushness.

Mouth- A solid medium body with a bit of that residual porter thinness to it. A medium carbonation. A small amount of smoke remains on the finish.

Drink- I liked it. Def. above average but just need a bit more complexity to me.
