I had this beer last year at EBF at remember being blown away to a point where I knew once this dropped, I had to get as much as possible. Well…maybe I was a little drunk when I had this last year because my memory was certainly different. The beer pours a jet black with a minimal amber head that quickly dissipates. The smell is just spectacular. You get a strong coconut nose, mixed with coffee and a little bit of vanilla. The taste and mouth-feel on this beer however was a little lackluster, then again it’s a 6.5% porter. The taste was worse than what I remember, and the high level of carbonation on this one made it hard to get the true flavor through. Like MBCP, this year’s batch for this year was a downgrade for me (88/100).
