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!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reddish with small beige head. Minty hop notes over mild roast aroma. Flavor has robust roast and chocolate and not nearly the hop presence that I got from the nose.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours deep deep deep red but I can still see some light through it. Foam is light tan. Nose is fruity danky, piney, citrus, earthy and resinous. flavor is chocolates, resins, pines, earth, and dank. Medium full body and wow the chinook really stands out. Pretty solid. A little arrogant bastardish.

Sampler at the brewery. Pours opaque dark brown with a frothy beige head and lots of lacing. Tastes like malt, alcohol, dull coffee, bready with medium hops. Medium body and low/medium carbonation. Faint smell of grains, coffee, malt.
