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

This brew pours a beautiful black with a thin mocha colored head. Very little lacing.

The smell is chocolate like and earthy; coffee grinds and some fruit I cannot identify.

The taste is chocolate and milky. Thick with roasted malts and kind of ashy and grainy on the back end. There are lots of sweet malts as well with the roasted malt taste at the beginning, hops in the middle and sweet with an ashy, smoky taste on the backend.

The mouthfeel is smooth and creamy, milky, goes down very smoothly.

Overall this a a smooth drinking porter. Everything is well balanced from the chocolate, to the sweet malts, roasted malts and coffee tastes. It goes down very smoothly and would make a great session beer on a cold winter night.
