look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured from the bottle to a snifter.

A: Poured near black with a dark brown tinge. Very small beige head.

S: Coffee and dark chocolate, roasty malts, some tobacco or tea, slight hops.

T: The taste follows the smell really well, except that the taste is more bitter than the smell might indicate.

M: Light to medium bodied. Average carbonation. Mostly bitter and a little sticky on the mouth feel.

Overall a great porter. I really like the coffee flavor and what I would describe as almost a smoky or tobacco flavor.

Serving type: bottle
