look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Black with a tan head. Lacing all over.

S: Nutty bread and rye. Earthy.

T: Earthy malts, nuts, caramel, big toffee notes, chocolate definitely, and some rye bread. Great!

M: Light to medium and that nice airyness that makes this porter such a classic.

O: Complex and delicious. This is what I would call a true porter. It's sweet and nutty and has plenty of creaminess to fill you up!
