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

Poured a dark brown color, with a soft caramel colored head forms on top. That laces slowly down to a eighth of an inch and staying there for some time. A roasty aroma at the front, with dark chocolate and sweet maltiness, with a touch of coffee. The roasted malt hits the palate at first taste, with amild coffee taste. That is followed by a grassy bitterness and slight tobbaco flavor. arich full bodied feel, and it smoothly rolls across the palate. The backend finishes dry, but not to overbearing. This is a really good porter, a great flavor and hearty, rich mouthfeel, along with an intising aroma, make this porter to desire year around.
