look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured from 12 oz. bottle:
A: Very dark appearance; head was rusty brown. One of the darkest porters I've seen.
S: Smell was very creamy, but not entirely strong.
T: The taste was phenomenal; it was extremely creamy and smooth with a very nice aftertaste. The initial taste when the beer hits the palate is pretty good, but the taste going down is amazing.
M: Same as taste; it was pretty awesome due to the creamy smooth texture of the beer.
D: Very drinkable; I wish I would've bought a six pack.
My favorite porter to date.

A - Just about jet black. Poured looking like oil or syrup. Thin, non-persistent dark tan head and quickly fading lace
S - Sweet and roasted nut. Maybe some spice somewhere in there. Some coffee notes as well.
T - Pretty good. Taste like a good dark chocolate mixed with roasted...something. I don't want to say roasted nut again but pretty much. Starts off as a burst of dark chocolate and finishes nice and bitter. Burnt dark chocolate is the best way I can describe it.
M - Not much to say. Medium bodied, average carbonation. Pretty drinkable.
O - Overall this is a good porter. A tad bit too bitter for my liking, but still real good. Reminds me very much of Guinness Extra Stout.

Pours black with a nice mocha head. Aroma is a touch smokey, extremely roasty giving offf some nice chocolate and coffee tones. Flavor is a touch smokey as well, wonderfully roasty with some great dark chocolate and coffee and a touch of char, and a nice intrusion of some bitterness from some hops in the finish. A creamy, medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, an absolutely fantastic porter here. Just as good, just different, from my favorite porter, Odell's Cutthroat Porter. Loved it, will absolutely be drinking lots more of this one.
