look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Completely opaque black body with a brown head. Great foam on this one.

Aroma: Deep roasty malts and just a hint of sweetness. Possibly some oatmeal.

Taste: Great roasted grain in there. It really fills your whole palate and stays with you long after you've swallowed. Just a hint of sweetness at the beginning and then dominated by coffee bitterness at the end.

Mouthfeel: Big rush of carbonation up front (slightly over-carbonated), then becomes perfectly smooth. A thick beer but still very drinkable because it goes down so easily.

Final Thoughts: This is a very solid porter (among the best I've had). If you're into this style then this beer is a must-have.
