4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Review from notes taken at Cigar City Brewing taproom on 7/15/12. Poured on draft into a Cigar City shaker pint glass.
Appearance: Pours a dark brown, almost black with a 1/2 finger light tan head. Decent lacing.
Smell: Roasted coffee, chocolate, toasted malt and white bread crust.
Taste: Milk chocolate, roasted malt and coffee throughout. Aftertaste is bitter coffee with a touch of sweet chocolate. Extremely well-balanced. Excellent flavor.
Mouthfeel: Medium-to-full-bodied with a decent amount of carbonation.
Drinkability: Excellent drinkability. I could drink this all day.
Overall: Excellent beer overall. Maybe the best porter (itís really close to a milk stout in my opinion) Iíve ever had. Itís extremely well-balanced and smooth. Iíd recommend trying this one if you get a chance. I hope Iím lucky enough to get some bottles of Everett at some point.
