look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

The look of the beer is pitch black with a tan head. Reminds me of a espresso even with the smell. As I take a drink the first think that hits my tongue is the taste of coffee and malt with a smooth finish. Not the strongest or most notable porter I've ever had but it has a great taste and a good finish. Just like a good coffee.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

This tastes exactly like coffee to me. That isn't a bad thing, I am just not picking up anything else. Add cream & sugar & I'd be having this with my breakfast tomorrow morning. Maybe leave out the cream and make an ice out of that.

Overall, a good porter & a really good beer - but there are better for the money IMHO.
