3.63/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Presentation: Had on tap, served in a shaker pint glass.

Appearance: Pours with 3/4 finger of medium tan head. This settles to a thin coating of foam with some lacing. The beer itself is very dark brown, almost black.

Smell: Very little in the way of smell. Hints of roastiness.

Taste: Smoky malt with mild roastiness. Hints of dark cherries and soy sauce.

Mouthfeel: Higher than average carbonation level, a little too high for the style. Body is decent.

Drinkability: Not bad, but nothing special. Overall somewhat weak and the high carbonation detracts even more from this one.

"Blackfooted Porter is deliciously deceptive. This dark brown beer with distinctively porter-like qualities, also has a lighter side. We use a high percentage of malted wheat in the recipe to lighen the body and make this dark gem deliciously drinkable." ...this from the Weasel Boy website. They are ultimately correct. The beer is easy to drink, palatable, and substantially weighted without becomming heavy. They are big on the chocolate notes, and light on the coffee tones. Also light on the hops; could be mistaken for an English Porter because of the higher sweetness and lower hopping. Low on esters, and cleanly malted. A nice beer to enjoy when the opportunity arises.
