look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Appearance: Black; looks like a stout

Smell: roasted and chocolate malts at its finest.

Taste: again, such great depth in flavor between the roasted and chocolate malts.

Mouthfeel: Heavy medium body; chewy and chalky.

Overall: My favorite porter along with Smuttynose and Eddy Fitz. I can't say enough good things about it

If I had to pick one beer (and that beer would be a porter or a stout) to drink for the rest of my life this would be it! Excellent color and taste, not too flat. I've had a fair number of porters and this, Black Butte and Sam Smith's Taddy Porter always do it for me - of those three I'd pick this one if I had to - fortunately I don't.
