Thirsty Dog "Old Leghumper"
Thirsty Dog Brewing Company - Akron, Ohio USA
Porter (ABV 6.7%) (IBU 24)

[Suggested Glassware: Nonic Pint]

Rating: 3.6/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 4/5
Overall: 14/20

The pour was a dark murky brown with some ruby highlights and an average (1-2 finger) light tan frothy head that receded down to a thick film and large collar with good runny lacing.

The aroma was of roasted dark bread malts, a mild resin hop and an earthy yeast with notes of milk chocolate and roasted coffee.

The taste was very malty and quite roasty with a bold chocolate presence early on, progressing with a slightly bitter and silky smooth coffee taste with a mildly harsh bite towards the finish. The flavor lasted an average duration following the swallow with a lightly bitter mocha coffee flavor left lying on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was just under medium in body with a dry, oily texture and almost flat carbonation, almost.

Overall after sippin' on this brew for a while, it comes off as a delightfully tasty and silky smooth brew with a really good drinkability...
