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

Poured into a pint glass from the bottle.

A very dark walnut colored body with a large four finger head. Dark cocoa colored at first of head bubbles but seems to settle down and get lighter in color as time goes on. Some lacing. She looks good.

Great cream smell, roast, fresh brewed coffee, and some sweet malt. This smells just great a mish mash of many things which all get a turn. I can't get over how creamy this smells with a grain husk like sense.

Taste is a great chocolate at first, with good malt chew. Aftertaste has some hop finish with honey. Lots of flavors that come out throughout the tasting. THe honey on finish is surprising where did that come from. Not too wet either, just right, hardly noticeable alcohol content.

This is a great American Porter what can I say, really like it alot.
