Pretty good overall. More alcohol presence on the front end than I normally like but not overwhelming

Poured a fairly dark brown, settled a deep deep brown that was nearly black, left an inch tall light tan head that receded slowly. Left a fair amount of lacing behind.

This doesn't smell like a porter, it smells very hoppy.

Definitely a hoppy porter. I was left with a bit of confusion, earthy grapefruit bitters slowly melded into a roasted coffee malt and then I felt like I was in familiar territory again. Leaves you with a bit of a fruity aftertaste, finished a bit sweet.

Full bodied but leaves quick and clean. Medium-light carbonation. Really would have preferred a more traditional porter, but it wasn't all bad.

I am drinking some Porters today and next up is a “Limited Release” from Avery.

From the bottle: “Expanding the porter category, we’ve added a delightful dry-hop aroma to blend with the sweet caramel and robust chocolate characteristics of a traditional porter. It’s big, bold and black!” That last line reads like the tagline for a porno movie. Hee hee.

It may not be appropriate to talk of Pop!ping the cap, but that is just what I did. I got carried away on my pour and following the pseudo-cascade, I got the tiniest of overflow. I also got three fingers of dense, light-tan head with good retention. I could smell the minty hops filling the room like a pleasant air freshener. Color was Dark Brown to Very Dark Brown (SRM = 27 – 34) with NE-quality clarity and cola highlights. Between the minty hops and the chocolaty malts, I thought that I was sniffing a Peppermint Patty. Here comes Trick or Treat! Mouthfeel was medium, much less carbonated than its predecessor. Taste was spot-on: minty and chocolaty, one big Yum! This was much more in alignment with what I enjoy from this style. Finish was slightly bitter, but eminently drinkable. The glass was lined with beautiful, sticky lacing and I found myself licking my chocolaty lips while gazing at it. Why must this be only a Limited Release? Make it year-‘round!
