After a minute or two of careful examination I’m able to pick up chocolate, and roasted malts.
Each sip produces flavors of chocolate and espresso. The chocolate develops into chocolate nibs as the beer progresses. There’s a bitterness on the mid-palate I can’t identify. I’m not sure whether it’s chocolate or hops. As the beer warms up, there’s a satisfying creamy mouthfeel, and the bitterness evolves into an espresso and dark chocolate combination.
The balance of flavors starts out average and improves to good as it warms up. The sweetness, chocolate and toasted malts meld together well.
Each sip finishes with a chocolate nib that is sweeter than the chocolate that starts each sip.
The Zero Issue Terraform is an enjoyable and satisfying porter. The flavor profile isn’t bold and doesn’t overwhelm the palate.
