look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Poured dark chocolate brownish black with a half inch beautiful creamy tan head that eventually thins out, but continues to lace throughout consumption.

Smell: Dark roast/burnt coffee with sweet milk chocolate notes

Taste: sweet and bittersweet. coffee and chocolate.

Mouth feel: Creamy, velvety....perfect.

Overall: I am a porter fan. The look, taste, and mouth feel of this particular porter is an answer to what I like most about them.

Poured dark brown with very little head, which quickly dissipated. Lacing on the side of the glass was minimal to non-existent. Smelled of dark roasted coffee. I can discern dark chocolate as well. The taste pretty much goes along with the smell. Roasted coffee predominates initially with a sweeter dark chocolate taste at the end. It was thick and velvety going down. Very slight bitterness at the end. Very good beer. I am just getting into Porters, so I don't have a lot to compare it to, but it is definitely one I would drink again.
