3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown pour with a tan head. The aroma is piney with some chocolate notes in it. The flavor has a mix of pine, roasted malt and chocolate. Very hoppy for a porter. Medium bitterness. Medium carbonation and thick mouthfeel.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass every time.
The appearance was a dark brown close to black color with a one finger white to off white foamy head that dissipates within about a minute and leaves a decent amount of foamy lacing.
The smell was roasty and bitter coffee pervading through some light caramel, chocolate and oatmeal.
The taste took those flavors and combined it wonderfully. There was a nice bitter coffee aftertaste that ended up leaving a dry finish.
On the palate, it sat about a medium on the body with a quality that wanted to show a decent sessionability but kinda made me sip it. The carbonation was good for the style and for me as it was slightly smooth and creamy.
Overall, I say this was a good American Porter well worthy of having again.

an, another example of american-izing a beer by loading it up with a ton more hops than is necessary for the style.

Nice balance and good coca finish. Not as hoppy up front as I expected. Drinkable yet somewhat busy with flavors.

Surprisingly thin brown, translucent pour, which follows through on the palate, just kind of thin. However, the flavor would suggest something a bit more full bodied, meaning this one tastes really nice. I was in the mood for a good porter on a cold cold night. Thanks Troegs!

Bottle. Pours a thin dark brown. Fairly mild flavor that isn’t too heavy on the roasted malts. Very drinkable and pretty good overall.

on tap at Brennans Bowery Bar in Buffalo. dark brown pour with a frothy foam head. Good creamy malt aroma with a hint of hops in it, some crisp citrus hops in the taste with a good coffee like chocolate in the finish. Great beer
