look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Bought a six-pack of these in Asheville, last time I was there and am finally getting around to reviewing one.

-Appearance 4: Every one of these has just gone nuts after I poured it. HUGE fizz up that eventually settles down into a normal inch high head. Jet black in color with a cream colored head. Very attractive.

-Smell 4: Lovely bouquet. Big smells of toasted grains, caramelized sugars and hops.

-Taste 4.25: Front is sweet with a certain hoppiness. Middle is somewhat neutral, but a very pleasant smoothness and hop flavor seeps in with a strange hint of butter flavor. Finish is alkaline with a pleasantly smooth level of hops which is accentuated by smoky grains. Everything is balanced and nuanced. Aftertaste is dry, very nuanced and features the smoky grains and a slight coffee flavor. Nice.

-Mouthfeel 3: This is the flaw of this beer. Mouthfeel is nice and deep, but there is far too much carbonation in this beer. CO2 should be tuned down a bit. Don't get me wrong, I think this style is helped out by a greater than normal level of carbonation, but its current level is over the top.

-Overall 4: Excellent porter. I really enjoy the flavor profiles in this beer and the hops chosen. My only complaint is the carbonation level. I would love to have this one on tap some day. I highly recommend this beer.
