12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a beautiful, completely opaque, pitc-black color with a quarter of a finger of white-colored head that quickly dissolved into a lacing of foam that partially covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Tons of roasted malt and coffee aromas up front, mixing with some hoppy aromas and dark chocolate. There’s a considerable more amount of hops in the nose that I was expecting and have become accustomed to in porters. I hope that the hops isn’t this assertive in the flavor of the beer as well.

Taste: Uh-oh, it is. Actually, there’s a lot more hops in the flavor than I was expecting and that I prefer. I get some notes of roasted malt and dark chocolate-like bitterness mixing with coffee, brown sugar and a whole lot of hops. In fact, hops is the predominate flavor of this porter, which turns me off from it.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with some good carbonation to tickle the taste buds. With an ABV of 5.4%, there is no presence of alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is just an ok porter. There’s too much hops in it which completely overpowers the traditional porter-style flavors of roasted malt, coffee and dark chocolate and because of that I don’t really like it, however, hop heads should like it.
