7/7/2010: This beer was one of the few leftovers from my little get together for the UFC fights. I am actually surprised that this is my first smuttynose out of 241 beers. Its readily available in the area so not sure why I haven’t picked any up yet. Oh well.

This porter pours out darker than any porter I have ever had. The smell is all about coffee. The taste is much of the same, a lot of bitter dark roast coffee, with a dash of chocolate. Its a good thing I like coffee, because if I didn’t this would be a drain pour. There is a good bit of sweetness in the beer to balance out the bitter. A little bit of earthy hops makes an appearance also. Heavy mouthfeel for a porter. If you don’t like coffee avoid this one, but if you do you need to find some Smuttynose Robust Porter.

Picture of the day: A pretty amazing trick shot.
