4.22/5  rDev +7.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: deep blackish brown. pretty much opaque, a finger plus of a deep tan head. fades pretty slowly but didn't leave to much lacing

Smell: roasty malts and chocolate. maybe a touch of coffee

Taste: roasty malts, slightly bitter chocolate. nothing unique or different but done well.

Mouthfeel: the highlight of the beer. starts off slightly creamy but followed by some bitterness that isn't overpowering or lingering. fairly light and drinkable

Overall: This is by favorite Blue Tractor beer. It isn't unique in any sense but its almost a spot on representation of a porter for me. I enjoyed one of these while listening to some great live music in MASH. Definitely worth a try

One of the few Blue Tractor beers that I would say is "good". Pours dark with small head. Aroma of coffee and heavily roasted malts. Flavor is nice and robust, with only hints of coffee and mostly roastiness. Relatively easy to drink, and went very well with my burger. Not a lot of hop bite at the end, but I tend to like the coffee and roast flavors more. Pretty solid beer.
