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

Pours a silky and oily dark brown and sits jet black in the glass with a fingers worth of light brown foam.

Freshly roasted coffee, semi-sweet cocoa, roasted nuts, and some slight oak/woody smokiness.

Semi-sweet chocolate, coffee, roasted/burnt oats/malts, and balanced with a fair amount of earthy hop bitterness.

Heavy-bodied, medium carbonation, roasty bitterness, chocolate sweetness, robust, silky smooth.

Overall, this is one of my favorite examples of the Porter style, definitely a much more robust mouthfeel than most porters and an extremely well balanced amount of sweetness and roasted bitterness.
