look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
The pour was rather thick. It had a very dark brown color. The pour produced a roasted looking head, but with little formation.
The aroma had some cool things working for it. It had a roasted coffee smell, a liquorish aroma at times, and an overall malty goodness.
As I expected the taste had a thickness to it. The taste was similar to the aroma. This had a really good robust flavor that was really smooth. It had a dry chocolate flavor, but not sweet. There was also a smooth roasted coffee flavor with a slight bitterness. A liquorish flavor showed up now and again along with dark fruits.
Conclusion: A good sipping porter. I had this while smoking a cigar and it was a great paring. This was an elegant porter and the price was very reasonable.
