Look: Almost black with a red ring a around the top and bottom. Almost a 1/4 inch tan head with no retention

Smell: Coffee and chocolate and a nice roasted malt smell

Taste: Very nice coffee notes not too much but just the right amount. Hints of chocolate and caramel

Mouthfeel: Buttery and silky. Medium body and medium carbonation levels

Overall: Very nice porter. Very nice and enjoyable flavors. This is my first beer by fifty/fifty brewing company and I am quite impressed. I also have a growler of the totality stout and I cant wait to crack it open

On tap at the brewery. Black with a fine tan head. Lots of chocolate and hops in the aroma. Sweet and roasty with caramel and some cocoa, balanced nicely with pretty ample piney hops. Medium bodied, with a creamy texture. A tasty roasty and hoppy porter, not unlike a hoppy foreign stout. Pretty bitter and hoppy, but the sweetness and lack of roasted astringency save the flavors from clashing.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Darker than black coffee, completely opaque and thick. Looks more like a stout than a porter to the naked eye.

Smell: Roasty notes, nothing out of the ordinary.

Taste: Zowy! A pretty much equal mix of chocolate, coffee and caramel. Blends together superbly.

Mouthfeel: One of the nicest drinking beers I've had in some time. Smoother than silk.

My first beer from 50/50 and an impressive one at that.
