look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into a stemmed tulip glass.

a: Pitch black. Half finger high brown head dissipated quickly to thin surface foam.

s: Mild dark malt.

t: Mild dark malt, coffee, chocolate and smoky finish.

m: Light to moderate. Smooth with a lingering chocolate/coffee smokiness and hop bite.

o: Exceptionally drinkable porter without being watery or feeling cheap. Had as a dessert but should go well with beef and other red meat.

taste: rich smooth chocolate flavor with a bit of coffee. nice maltyness

mouthfeel: smooth and velvety. not too thick and heavy and not too thin and watery, just right
