Rich, smoky aroma has an overtone of semi-sweet chocolate and subtle roast malt and licorice notes. It pours a deep, warm sable with a thick, fluffy and rather persistent tan head. Flavor, though, lacks the depth that the aroma promised - still smoky like a good porter with roast malt and coffee notes and hints of licorice and chocolate, just not as strong as the bouquet. Texture has OK body but plenty of fizz. Overall, a good porter, if not an outstanding one. Definitely worth a try, especially if you like dark beers.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

appearance: Dark brown, nearly opaque, noteworthy billowy tan head with swaths of messy lacing.
smell: Solid chocolate nose, simple, not much depth or richness.
taste: Solid again. Tasty, but a bit of an odd aftertaste. Can't put a finger on it.
mouthfeel: full and creamy.
overall: A good not great Porter. Glad I tried it.

A: Dark brown with an off white head

S: getting lots of aroma; mainly Coffee, toffee, cocoa, and licorice....and maybe even some butterscotch

T: Wow, nice sweetness and mild bitterness. Bitterness definitely doesn't linger too much. Nice roasted malts and mild coffee flavor.

M: feels more carbonated than I had expected

O: one of the better porters I've had

This porter pours exceptionally dark, not giving in anyway to light. There's decent retention of a small 1 finger head. This porter features roasted malt in a big way. The nose is dominated by a smoky roast and American ale yeast. The taste follows closely: roasted grains, chocolate, earthy hops, nutty yeast. The mouthfeel is a bit thin for my taste, but it is well-carbonated. Overall, very nice and very roast forward.

22 oz bottle, no date.

appears opaque black in color, 1/2" thick creamy head, decent head retention. aroma is a bit like toasted marshmellow, bittersweet chocolate.

taste is a bit smokey, roasty, with some bitter cocoa. medium thickness, medium carbonation.

overall - a solid porter. great to pair with porkchops.

A - Great big dark brown coloration, nice beige head that's big and laces nice.

S - Coffee, dark chocolate. There's nothing milky here. It's like smelling pure coffee or cocoa beans. Great. Bordering on robust but not quite.

T - Pretty big flavors. Dark chocolate, bold East African coffee, raisins, prunes, with a big beery after bite.

M - Medium to full bodied. I think the carbonation could be toned down a little here. Nothing to complain about thought. Dry, resinous aftertaste on the tongue. Nice.

D - A good beer. Nice to see a brewery from the home state making a name for themselves with so many quality releases. You can taste the inspiration of Cape Cod in this one. There's a nice Cape breeze and brininess to this beer. It's a dark beer you'd be bound to drink at a beach at a clambake. I appreciate that.
