4.55/5  rDev +7.1%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on January 11, 2013.

It has a beautiful extra dark brown to practically black pour with a delicate, tan head bobbing on top and slowly diminishing.

The aroma is dark, smoky, and full of chocolate and coffee esters. It smells like a Porter should and invites me in.

The body is creamy and bold.

The taste is very much reflective of the aroma with an array of dark malts, yeast, chocolate, coffee grinds, and smoke. Topnotch.

3.39/5  rDev -20.2%
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.
