Aroma

The aroma strongly wafts a sweet scent of coconut and chocolate that’s backed by a hint of coffee.

Flavor

The tasting is led gently by a neutral blend of coffee flavor and bready malt. Mildly bitter coffee roast punches the top end and then the palate bottoms out with a sweet mix of coconut, vanilla, and chocolate.

Mouthfeel

Its feel is relatively smooth on the draw and picks up a light grain on the back end. It’s almost creamy through the middle with a body that’s a shade over medium and moderate carbonation.

Overall

The C Porter looks great in the glass and its aroma is enticing. The brew feels luscious and that palate is so delicious while balancing its sweet and roast flavors beautifully. The C Porter receives high marks all around and its Gold Medal win at the 2017 Great American Beer Festival is well deserved.
