look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Poured from a 22oz bottle into point glass. It has a black appearance with low to no transparency and a small tan head. It has a hoppy and roasted malt smell. It has a very roasted taste with a medium maltiness. It has a creamy mouth feel with a wet finish. Overall it's a nice porter with a good roasted character.

Serving type: bottle

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Serving type: 18.7 ounce Victorian bottle poured into a Belgian style tulip.

Appearance: Looks great in the glass, creamy tan head with tiny bubbles, beautiful lacing even all around the glass, dark, nice head retention despite some shrinkage.

Smell: chocolate, roasted malt smell up front, not overpowering, fruity smell on the back, cherry like aroma, not a heavy aroma like a stout a bit lighter.

Taste: Roasted malt up front, some bitterness, not much, fruity dark cherry flavor on the back, great flavor.

Mouthfeel: Of the Sam Smith's beers I have tried this appears to me the most impressive, they have smooth creamy feel, some carbonation, their beers flow smoothly through the palate.

Overall: Awesome porter, very drinkable, 5%, not as bitter or roasted as some American porters but the balance is great, world class English porter.
