Served from bottle into glass. Good amount of foam, head was cream in color, beer was opaque brown black. Smell had fruity, coffee, and caramel notes. Tasted had deep coffee flavor, slightly smoky, sweet chocolate, strong hops, and good bitterness level. Mouth feel had a good body. Overall a great porter, had it before and will have it again.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Look: Very dark. Tan head that dissipates to a thin ring around the edge.

Smell: Dark chocolate, coffee. A bit roasty and nutty. A hint of hops.

Taste: A very roasty flavor, almost like peanuts. A hint of coffee and dark chocolate, and again, just a small hint of hops.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied. Nice and creamy.

Overall: A very well balanced beer. Not exactly what I expected. I expected it to be a bit sweeter, but I'm still impressed.

The darkest brown with a light brown head.

Coffee and roasted malt aroma.

Dark chocolate syrup is first to mind, little coffee note in there, too. The darker malts give off a charred taste. A very straight forward, hearty beer. I can't pick up the hops but there's a touch of sweetness on the finish.

Could well be a stout. A dirty kind of brew that's all the better for it.
