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

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

A- Dark chocolate brown color, nearly black. Dark and dense, with a malty-mocha head that leaves big brown lacing.

S- Chocolate, coffe, dark roasty malts, and some alcohol.

T- Good dark chocolate bitterness, coffee, roasted malts.

M-Rich feel, fuller than many porters. Very good carbonation and the alcohol takes a back seat after it passes the nose.

O- It's flavor forward and tuned-up just enough so it doesn't come on too strong. A good 'un.
