2 Crows Brewing Midnight Mood American Porter at 6.6% ABV | 39 IBU (C$3.91 at Liquid Assets YHZ, 473 ml, packaged on 3-May-2017, best before 31-Oct-2017, acquired 12-Nov-2017, reviewed 14-Nov-2017)

Appearance: nearly opaque black with minimal brown relief at the margins, two fat fingers of fluffy beige head, good retention and heavy soapy lacing. (5/5) Aroma: dark roasted coffee, pine, dank resin, dark fruit. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter, light tart. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, dry bitter slightly tart finish. (4/5)

The label says “Roasty dank smooth bright” and dang if it ain’t all of those! I was particularly surprised to find that it really was brightly hoppy (well… fairly, anyway) on top of the dominant (but not oppressive) dark roasted coffee. Good fun. (15/20)
