Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – Served a deep brown colored brew boarding on black. Upon serving there was a small tan colored head floating on the top of the brew. The head faded rather fast to leave a lighter level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The brew smells sweet and roasty. The roasted aromas were a nice mix of coffee and chocolate with the sweet being largely of a caramel nature.
Taste – The taste begins with a roasted malt and caramel sweetness. While the nose suggested a chocolate taste somewhere in the taste, there was is only a very little cocoa/chocolate present. While not much cocoa, a coffee flavor does start developing more toward the middle of the taste. As this occurs, the caramel sweetness begins fading some vanilla comes to the tongue and still keeps a nice sweetness to the brew. Also when the coffee comes to the tongue, so too does a light bitterness of some earthy and herbal hop. The hop and coffee when combined with the roasted flavors and the slight lessening of the caramel sweetness leave a nicely roasted and semi-sweet bitter flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the rather average side in terms of its thickness with a carbonation level that is on the average to slightly above average side. It is a little light in body and a little too high in carbonation for my taste, as both really don’t complement the nice roasted and earthy/herbal hop flavors of the brew very well.
Overall – Besides the just moderate body, it was a quite nice porter. It was sweeter upfront and slightly more bitter at the end with some nice coffee flavors streaked throughout.
